Hoaxes and Urban Legends: Lou Dobbs video on Immigration/Amnesty bill (dead since 2007)

A chain letter has been making the rounds invites people to watch an alarming sounding video of Lou Dobbs on CNN about an immigration bill.

The truth is, regardless how acurate or inaccurate his description of the provisions of the the bill he talks is, the video is from June 2007 and the bill is long dead. It never became law. This YouTube link takes you to the same video, with an upload date of June 25, 2007. Bill S. 1348 ("Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act of 2007" or "Secure Borders, Economic Opportunity and Immigration Reform Act of 2007") died in June 2007 due to lack of support in Congress. Yes, that's more than a year and a half before Barack Obama became President of the USA. President George W. Bush expressed his "disappointment" at lawmakers failing to pass a bill.
