Conservative firebrand Ann Coulter is hardly shirking in the face of mounting criticism over her recent remarks about immigrants. As political candidate Donald Trump has lost several lucrative business partnerships in the wake of his controversial remarks on the subject, Coulter has faced mounting accusations of racism – even from some within conservative media.
She has used the disruption of a recent event promoting her latest book and the murder of a San Francisco girl as two examples ostensibly proving her point that illegal immigrants are overwhelmingly violent and destructive.
Despite the controversy her statements have garnered, Coulter nonetheless weighed in on the subject during recent appearances on Fox News. Appearing on Hannity this week, she recalled warnings of potential ISIS terror attacks in the days leading up to Independence Day.
Instead, she asserted, “Americans were killed by immigrants.”
In addition to the aforementioned San Francisco death, Coulter said an illegal immigrant was also linked to the weekend bludgeoning of his wife.
“It isn’t just American citizens who aren’t being protected,” she said, “but these Republicans and of course Democrats who claim to speak for the poor, the downtrodden, the working class – no, they’re speaking for big business who want their cheap labor and to externalize their costs both in terms of taxes and in terms of the crime rate.”
She made similar remarks during an appearance on Sunday’s Fox and Friends.
“You know,” she said, “going into this weekend, the media was consumed with stories: Americans have to be on the lookout for ISIS attacks and terror attack expected, and oh, shark attacks. I will bet you by the end of the weekend, more Americans will have been killed by Mexicans than by ISIS or by sharks.”
