Participating in a CPAC 2014 panel discussion Saturday, syndicated columnist and best selling author Ann Coulter slammed the GOP, saying the immigration bill championed by U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio was evidence that “Republicans hate black people.”

In a tribute to William F. Buckley Jr.’s “Firing Line”, Coulter was debating liberal journalist Mickey Kaus, with Townhall’s Jonathan Garthwaite moderating.

“I mean my whole life I’ve heard Republicans hate black people, I’ve never seen any evidence of it until I read Marco Rubio’s amnesty bill,” she charged. “We are the party that has always stood up for African-Americans. Who gets hurt the most by amnesty, by continuing these immigration policies it is low-wage workers, it is Hispanics, it is blacks.”

Sarah Palin shines at CPAC with version of Dr. Suess:
‘We will not take it – nope, nope, nope!’

Coulter equated immigration reform efforts to amnesty, suggesting President George W. Bush and U.S. Sen John McCain were hurt as much by the issue in the past as Rubio has been more recently.

Agreeing with an assessment last month by Kaus that amnesty is like a zombie, she said, “We can’t kill it, they [GOP] keep going back to it.”
