Laura Ingraham Targets Even Legal Immigrants In Off-The-Rails Rant

Although Ingraham didn't name the individual, she was likely referring to former KKK leader David Duke, who tweeted (and then deleted) praise for her comments in which she lamented the "massive demographic changes" caused by immigration and said "in some parts of the country, it does seem like the America that we know and love doesn't exist anymore".

Many responded on Twitter, with some describing the "Ingraham Angle" host as racist.

Ingraham made the controversial remarks during her Fox News show, "The Ingraham Angle", on Wednesday. "She will only become greater by becoming more of what she already is".

Ingraham was highly criticized for commentary where she said that the United States many loved didn't exist anymore because of immigration, both legal and illegal.

"Furthermore as I have said repeatedly on this show, merit-based immigration does wonders for our country's economy, our way of life, and how we define our country", she added.

Fox News commentator Laura Ingraham is at it again, with her derogatory comments toward immigrants and those individuals of the non-white demographic. Her critics aren't buying that; MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski on Friday called it a "white supremacist" speech.

Her program averaged 37 paid advertisements in March but was down to 15 in July, according to Media Matters for America, a liberal Fox News critic that monitors its programming. Hogg responded by tweeting a list of companies that advertised on Ingraham's show and encouraging people to contact them to complain.

Advertisers started pulling out nearly immediately, and by the following month, she had lost over two dozen.
