I'll cut to the chase here, because we all know the left look for anything they can to paint Trump as racist.
But FOX? Just more evidence that they're nothing more than a mouthpiece for the gop'E-stablishment.

Fox News issued a statement about taking down the ad shortly after NBC, according to a CNN report.

“Upon further review, Fox News pulled the ad yesterday and it will not appear on either Fox News Channel or Fox Business Network,” Marianne Gambelli, Fox News’ president of advertisement sales, said in a statement.

I still don't understand why anyone would think a news org with Prince Al-Waleed as a shareholder would think it's conservative/pro-MAGA.  They are simply the less radical of them all, with two pro-Trump hosts: Hannity and Judge Shapiro.

So much for freedom of speech in the news.

Yeah, this is ridiculous, they are making the weird claim that somehow "Illegal" isn't a crime?

Honestly, I don't really see what's wrong with the ad. Yes it is somewhat insensitive and it does cast a wide net but in reality, Illegal Immigration is a serious problem for this country. Drastic measures have been taken by both sides of the aisle this election season with the ads and attacks. What I don't understand is how the Democrats are so quick to point out faults on the Republicans end, yet continue to allow smear tactics and blatant lies to be passed by their candidates without so much as an eye bat. The hypocrisy is so blatant yet a blind eye is turned every time.

Kinda Too late ain't it?  The ads have been running now for weeks, everybody saw 'em. If anything those who haven't seen the ad will seek it out. Stupid.

I know, nothing like helping your enemy, and to think, that's how FOX sees Trump. Sad, very sad.
