Companies that ran advertisements during Tucker Carlson’s
timeslot on Fox News have begun fleeing in droves, following the
controversial comments he made about immigrants seeking shelter in
the US.

On Thursday, the “Tucker Carlson Tonight” host expressed concern
with the current state of US immigration and attempted to
distinguish immigrants based on their educational background.
Carlson, who urged for more immigrants who were “scientists and
engineers,” suggested allowing in immigrants hailing from
impoverished regions of the world would make the US “poorer and
dirtier.”

“Instead we’re getting waves of people with high school
educations or less. Nice people, no one doubts that, but as an
economic matter this is insane. It’s indefensible, so no one even
tries to defend it,” Carlson said.

“Instead our leaders demand that you shut up and accept this. We
have a moral obligation to admit the world’s poor, they tell us,
even if it makes our country poorer and dirtier and more
divided.”

After Carlson’s comments were widely rebuked and whispers of
boycotts began circulating, companies who advertised on his show
began cutting ties.

On Monday, Carlson reiterated his prior claims and likened the
affect of the US’s immigration policy to that of Mexico’s: “The
left says we have a moral obligation to admit the world’s poor,”
Carlson said. “Even if it makes our own country more like Tijuana
is now, which is to say poorer and dirtier and more divided.”

Fox News Channel supported its host’s opinions, and said it was
a “shame that left-wing advocacy groups, under the guise of being
supposed ‘media watchdogs’ weaponize social media against companies
in an effort to stifle free speech.”

The company also described the developments as “unfortunate and
unnecessary distractions,” and specifically targeted progressive
media watchdogs with “deeply political motives.”

“While we do not advocate boycotts, these same groups never
target other broadcasters and operate under a grossly hypocritical
double standard given their intolerance to all opposing points of
view,” Fox News said.

Here’s the full list of companies that have pulled their
advertisements from Carlson’s show:
