A co-host of the show is Lalo Alcaraz, whose "La Cucaracha" comic strip and editorial cartoons are distributed by Universal Press Syndicate., in a story explaining the contest, said the first undocumented immigrants to name their U.S.-born child "Lou Dobbs" before Sept. 16, 2006, will win $500 worth of baby-nursery items from East Los Angeles merchants. The story noted that the contest is being held "in the interest of racial harmony and assimilation of immigrants into U.S. culture," and added: "Immigrants are not a threat to this great nation. In fact, they are industrious, ambitious, and
at times just as confused, inarticulate, and one-sided on the immigration issue as Lou Dobbs himself." said the CNN commentator "is the largest anti-immigrant critic on the horizon."

KPFK 90.7 in Los Angeles airs "The Pocho Hour of Power" on Fridays at 4 p.m.
