Phi Beta Iota: A careful reading of the entire piece suggests that all of the illegal workers were hired by others, e.g. stable owners, transport companies, landscaping companies, and that Dobbs was an indirect beneficiary of their services.  This is an example of “Deep Corruption” that is endemic but not necessarily individually assignable.
