Last night's addition of traitor outsourcing company names:

DOBBS: We continue to update our list of companies we've confirmed to be exporting jobs to cheap foreign labor marks. These are companies sending those jobs overseas or choosing to employ cheap foreign labor, instead of employing U.S. workers.

We're asking for your help in identify the companies still. We've received thousand of e-mail. And I have to tell you, it's going to be taking us weeks. We will be taking weeks and weeks to confirm these notifications.

Tonight, we're adding to the list of companies. Again, all of these we have confirmed to be exporting America. And here we go. And bear with us. It's a huge list, and, in yellow, the new additions, 3M, Adaptec. That's a computer networking company in Milpitas, California, Advanced Micro Devices, Alcoa, Bechtel, Charles Schwab, ChevronTexaco, Cooper Tools. That manufactures assembly equipment. It's based in Lexington, South Carolina. Covad Communications, an Internet and online service provider based in Santa Clara, California. Ford Motor, JDS Uniphase, Lehman Brothers, Merrill Lynch, Morgan Stanley, Motorola, New York Life insurance company, Otis Elevator, the nation's No. 1 maker of elevators and a subsidiary of United Technologies, SBC Communications, Solectron Corporation, a contracts electronic manufacturer again based in Milpitas, California.

Well, please continue sending us the names of those companies you know to be exporting America." Send them to us at LouDobbs@CNN.com. We'll continue to report on them, as we confirm each one of those companies each evening right here.

Taking a look now at some of your thoughts on "Exporting America."

From Willits, California: "It amazes me that the majority of people can see what the politicians and economic advisers can't. We see our borders be invaded by illegals and our jobs being sent to other countries. Yet the people who could and should stop it refuse to do anything" -- Rose Lewis Foster.

From Newmarket, New Hampshire: "Your show on exporting America is long overdue and greatly appreciated by those who make an honest effort to buy American. When shopping, I always look for the made-in- America label" -- Bill Blank.

From Chicago, Illinois: "Lou, I was quite surprised to see your show, 'Exporting America,' whining and whining about how Americans lose jobs to foreign countries, but did not even mention the underlying reason. Foreign goods are simply and cheaper. Foreigners work much harder and they're better educated in high-tech industries. It all boils down to competition. And the United States is losing" -- Sean Lee.

From Carmel, New York: "Why is it good to expert U.S. jobs overseas in the name of free trade, but bad for U.S. citizens to buy drugs from Canada and overseas at lower prices than are available in the United States? Is free trade only good when it benefits large corporations and executives?" -- Rick Boehme.

And from Forestville, California: "Lou, how you talk about 'Exporting America," then the following ad is from Deutsche Bank asking us to give them our money? How about a Miller Beer ad or something American, anyway?" -- George Quarles.

Well, actually, George, South African Breweries bought Miller Brewing in July of last year. So Miller is technically no longer truly an American company. But we get your point.

We love hearing from you. E-mail us at LouDobbs@CNN.com.

Just ahead here, the current state of U.S.-China relations. Two experts face off tonight about a wide range of issues, including the escalating trade deficit and the exportation of jobs to China.
