On the April 3 edition of Fox News' Fox & Friends, regular guest and syndicated radio host Erich "Mancow" Muller announced that he was "having a big rally here in Chicago" for a "group" that he said was "pro-illegal murder and illegal car thieves." Muller added: "We're just getting together, and we're going to be out on the street. We're for illegal murder and illegal car thievery. So, we just like illegal stuff. All of us going to get together, have a ... big riot."

In recent weeks, hundreds of thousands of people have protested across the United States against an immigration bill passed by the House of Representatives that would make it a felony to be in the United States illegally. When co-host Brian Kilmeade asked Muller if he was "[m]ocking immigration," Muller responded, "Haven't heard anything about it."

Muller added: "I just like illegal murder and illegal car thieves. So, you know, it's illegal, but -- and, in fact, all the people who have done it are going to be out there on the street, and hopefully, none of the cops will come arrest us."

Co-host Steve Doocy then said: "Yeah, you wouldn't want to round them up right then, when they're saying, 'Hey, I'm right here.' "

Media Matters for America has documented previous controversial statements made by Muller.

From the April 3 edition of Fox News' Fox & Friends:

MULLER: I'm having a big, I'm having a big -- well, I don't know if you want to talk about it. I'm having a big rally here in Chicago, guys.

KILMEADE: For?

E.D. HILL (co-host): What?

MULLER: Well, pro -- we're -- it's a group that we're getting together. They're pro-illegal murder and illegal car thieves. We're just getting together, and we're going to be out on the street. We're for illegal murder and illegal car thievery. So, we just like illegal stuff. All of us going to get together, have a big -- big riot.

KILMEADE: Mocking immigration?

MULLER: What?

HILL: Get enough people in enough cities, and people will listen.

MULLER: Haven't heard anything about it.

DOOCY: Yeah.

MULLER: I just like illegal murder and illegal car thieves. So, you know, it's illegal, but -- and, in fact, all the people who have done it are going to be out there on the street, and hopefully, none of the cops will come arrest us.

DOOCY: Yeah, you wouldn't want to round them up right then, when they're saying, "Hey, I'm right here."

MULLER: Yeah.
