So much of Fox News programming is focused on demonizing immigrants, especially those crossing through the US/
Mexican border. GOP lawmakers do it as well. Just the other day, Marsha Blackburn tweeted, “Tennesseans want a wall on our southern border.” Of course, Tennessee’s southern side is bordered by Georgia, Alabama, and Mississippi.
Donald Trump also had his feelings on southern borders immigrants. He called them rapists and murderers. Jeanine Pirro offered another potential problem with immigrants during a Friday night appearance on The Five; they might be alcoholics.
Pirro told the Fox audience:
“He (Biden) is opening up the borders to people we don’t even vet. We don’t know who among them is a criminal. Who among them is a pedophile. Who is an alcoholic? Who likes children? Who was convicted of murder? Who’s a Latin King? Don’t we have a right to know that in the United States of America?”

The Fox News host has been accused of appearing on her show while intoxicated in the past. After one memorable segment, Fox News claimed that there were technical difficulties with the teleprompter.
