Following NBC's decision to drop the Miss USA telecast from the network in advance of its planned July 12 airdate, the Reelz network has picked up the baton.

"The decision on the part of Reelz to acquire the rights to the Miss USA pageant was based on our belief that this special event, and the women who compete in it, are an integral part of the American tradition," says Stan E. Hubbard, CEO of Reelz, in a statement released to PEOPLE.

"As one of only a few independent networks, we decided to exercise our own voice and committed ourselves to bringing this pageant to American viewers everywhere," the statement continues. "For us, this decision is about the dreams of the contestants who come from all walks of life across the United States, the city of Baton Rouge that has proudly come together to host this pageant and the viewers who will be watching and celebrating its 54th year on television."

Donald Trump's Miss USA Pageant Will Take Place as Planned – Without NBC and Cheryl Burke

Originally posted 06/30/2015 12:20PM

The show must go on.

The Miss USA Pageant will take place as planned in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, on July 12 despite NBC's decision not to air the competition following Donald Trump's controversial comments about Mexicans. There's no word on what network, if any, will air the beauty queen competition.

"The Miss Universe Organization is built on a foundation of inclusion and continues to be a celebration of diversity and of all cultures," the group said in a statement Tuesday. "This year's Miss USA contestants represent many different ethnic backgrounds, including six Latinas (four of whom are of Mexican descent)."

Trump, who co-owns the pageant, is facing backlash after he outlined his immigration stance while announcing his bid for president.

"When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best," Trump, 69, announced to a crowd of press and likeminded supporters on the steps of Trump Tower on June 16. "They're not sending you. They're sending people that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems with us. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people."
