Today 09:55 GMT

Mr. Carlson compared the caravan’s effect on Tijuana to the consequences of illegal migration in the U.S., concluding the segment by saying that “unregulated” immigration made America “poorer and dirtier and more divided.”

“We cannot and will not allow voices like Tucker Carlson to be censored by agenda-driven intimidation efforts,” the statement said. Advertisers boycotting Mr. Carlson’s show have moved their ads to other shows on the network, and no revenue has been lost as a result of the boycott, according to a Fox News spokeswoman.
