Illegals on top of trainA pro-immigration enforcement advocate is scoffing at the recent effort of former Mexican president Vicente Fox to apologize for the vulgar language he used in attacking Donald Trump.

Earlier this year, Fox using an expletive when he said he would not pay for Trump's border wall and called Trump ignorant and crazy among other terms.

Trump demanded that Fox apologize for his vulgar remark and during a recent interview on Breitbart, the former Mexican president did just that.

"Yes, I'm humble enough...as leadership be...compassionate leader," Fox said of his statement. "If I offended you, I'm sorry."

William Gheen, president of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC, or ALIPAC, says Fox was trying to "play nice" with Trump in order to convince the presidential candidate to drop his plans for a wall and a crackdown on illegal immigration.

"And then (Fox) got caught the very next week," says Gheen, "conspiring with the Hillary Clinton campaign to get all the illegal immigrants and, I guess, Mexican-American voters to vote for Democrats."  

So while pretending to apologize to Trump, says Gheen, Fox is conspiring to destroy his presidential campaign.
