Activists accused Dobbs of prejudice against immigrants because he supports the controversial Minuteman project, a militia-style group seeking to prevent illegal border crossings. "He is, without question, a racist," said one protestor at the San Diego campus of the University of California. "He is against the Hispanic people from everywhere, especially Mexico."
Dobbs took the protest in stride, telling a reporter, "I think it's great that the university supports the Constitutional right of assembly and free speech." Yet when asked about the accusations of racism, Dobbs "would not discuss the matter."
