Outspoken commentator and writer Ann Coulter joined Fox News’ Sean Hannity to deliver to the viewing audience exactly what she thinks about Donald Trump’s stance on immigration – and she didn’t mince words.
“My only quibble with [Trump] is that, No. 1, it’s legal immigrants, too. And, No. 2, there are no good ones,” Coulter said on “Hannity” Monday.
Coulter called Trump’s hard-line stance on immigration “fantastic,” but made the argument that he doesn’t quite go far enough.
Coulter told Hannity the immigration epidemic in the U.S. is the most important issue facing the nation. She explained that not only are those who sneak over the border illegally a drain on the economy, but so are today’s immigrants who are coming in legally.
“The question isn’t, ‘Oh, are you a good person?’ and then get automatic entry to the greatest country in the world with an enormous welfare state,” Coulter said.
Rather, she said, the universal question should be, “is it good for the people already living here?”
“Are they using our schools, our roads, our hospitals? I want the nuclear physicist,” she said.
Coulter has been making headlines with caustic statements about immigration while promoting her latest book, “Adios America: The Left’s Plan to Turn Our Country Into a Third-World Hellhole” — the title gives you the gist of it.
She argued to Hannity Monday that “pre-1970 immigrants, had higher education, made more money, bought more houses.”
Since 1970, Coulter said, the U.S. is primarily taking in the “poorest of the poor.”
“Post-1970 immigrants are voting 8-2 for the Democrats,” she said, arguing they’ve changed the “political landscape within the U.S.”
Hannity and Coulter used Australia as an example of a country that is selective about its immigration process. Coulter said Australia’s high minimum wage rose naturally due to its highly skilled workers.
Coulter argued America’s minimum wage “wouldn’t be so low if we didn’t dump low-wage workers on the country.”
“Go, Trump, go!” she said.
