Ann Coulter says immigrants are worse than ISIS in contentious interview

Conservative pundit Ann Coulter sat down with Fusion’s Jorge Ramos to discuss her views on illegal immigration and immigration reform, and to say the interview was contentious is putting it lightly. They sparred over the true number of illegals living in the United States — Ramos insisted it’s 11 million while Coulter contested it’s actually 30 million — and Coulter refused to hug an illegal sitting in the audience. But one of the most shocking moments came when Coulter proclaimed that Mexican immigrants are more of a threat to Americans than ISIS terrorists:

Conservative author Ann Coulter sparred with Jorge Ramos in a video published Tuesday over her statement that immigrants from Mexico pose a greater danger to American security that the Islamic State.

“I have a little tip. If you don’t want to be killed by ISIS, don’t go to Syria. If you don’t want to be killed by a Mexican, there’s nothing I can tell you,” Coulter told Fusion’s Jorge Ramos.

“Very easy to not be killed by ISIS,” she added. “Don’t fly to Syria.”

The comment seemingly took Ramos off guard, who replied, “Are you really saying…we’re talking about 40 million immigrants in this country?”

“Do you think people are biologically disposed to commit crimes?” Ramos followed up with.

Coulter replied “no” to the latter question, but firmly held her position that immigrants pose a greater danger to America, contending some cultures are “obviously deficient.”

“There are a lot of problems with that culture,” she said, referring to Mexico. “Hopefully it can be changed. But we can share our culture with other nations without bringing all of their people here.”

“America is the best in the world. And we are about to lose it,” Coulter added. “Everyone who lives here is going to lose that.”
