Prolific author and commentator Ann Coulter never shies from controversy. She regularly makes statements that raise eyebrows on both the right and the left, but this latest claim is perhaps the most outrageous thing I’ve ever heard her say – particularly because it’s not just an opinion,it’s apparently true!
As IJReview reports, Coulter was appearing on Fusion TV with host Jorge Ramos to promote her new book Adios, America! She shocked Ramos when she claimed that the United States has already taken in ONE-FOURTH of the population of Mexico.
How can this be true?
In 2013, Zack Taylor, chairman of the National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers, Inc said in a letter that the number of illegal immigrants in the country is probably closer to 20 million, rather than the usual Homeland Security Department estimates of 11-ish million.
In case you missed it, Taylor had some very frightening things to say about the “assymetrical warfare” occurring on our borders.
Anyway, when you add Taylor’s 20 million to the 11.6 million LEGAL immigrants from Mexico, you get a total of 31.6 million people from Mexico.IJ Review says in 2013, the CIA estimated the total population of Mexico at 120 million.
Voila! (or perhaps I should say “aquí”). Thirty-plus million is basically a quarter of 120 million.Yes, we have already taken in the equivalent of one-fourth of the population of Mexico. Now do you understand why you have to “press 1 for English?”
This has to end SOMEHOW. And right now it doesn’t look like it’s going to end well.
By the way, here are some other interesting tidbits about global immigration from Ms. Coulter
> In 1970, there were almost no Nigerian immigrants in the United States. Our country is now home to more Nigerians than any country in the world except Nigeria.
> America takes more immigrants from Nigeria than from England.
> There are more foreign inmates in New York state prisons from Mexico than from the entire continent of Europe.
> Hispanics are less likely to be in the military than either whites or blacks, and a majority of Hispanic troops are women. On the other hand, Hispanics are overrepresented in U.S. Prisons.
> In Denmark, actual Danes come in tenth in criminals’ nationality, after Moroccans, Lebanese, Yugoslavians, Somalis, Iranians, Pakistanis, Turks, Iraqis and Vietnamese.
Getting xenophobic yet?
