It's now been a full week since Lou Dobbs broadcast his last show on CNN, and the heartfelt calls and emails from participants and endorsers of this campaign are still pouring in.

To honor the one week anniversary, we'd like to share some press clips that highlight the movement we all created.

BastaDobbs.com is a fast-growing network of organizations working to educate Latinos about the threat posed by Lou Dobbs. From New York to California, Illinois to Arizona, Latinos and our allies are increasingly seeing the link between negative portrayals in the media and discrimination in our hometowns, and saying, “¡Basta!” Enough is enough.
