Fox not only gives a platform to anti-immigrant voices, but also spreads anti-immigrant conspiracy theories to a wide audience via its nightly pundits such as Laura Ingraham and Tucker Carlson. As the country’s most prominent right wing news outlet, Fox News has reliably provided a platform for the anti-immigrant movement for years. Anti-immigrant spokespeople and publications by anti-immigrant groups such as Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) and the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), are a fixture of the network’s immigration-related coverage. Ironically, Tucker Carlson, the keystone anchor of Fox’s primetime programming, was once an ardent critic of the FAIR and other anti-immigrant spokespeople. “There are reasonable critics of immigration, but [FAIR’s] Dan Stein is not one of them,” Carlson wrote in a 1997 Wall Street Journal article, “Which makes it all the more puzzling that a number of otherwise sober-minded conservatives seem to be making common cause with Mr. Stein and FAIR.” In 2017, twenty years later, Stein was an in-studio guest on Tucker Carlson Tonight multiple times. His appearances on the show have been largely friendly and non-combative. In one instance, FAIR gave exclusive access to the Tucker Carlson show of a new study that “shows the scale on which the United States is being plundered” by immigrants.
