During a televised interview on Univision, an illegal immigrant asked author Ann Coulter for a hug “as a sign of my humanity and yours.”
Coulter, upon hearing of the woman’s illegal status promptly responded with “No, get on with the question.”
At first, Gaby Pacheco, tried to get Coulter to give her a hug without revealing her status. But Coulter politely explained that she had just gotten over the flu.
It was then that Pacheco revealed she was “undocumented” and the conservative author of the new book, Adios, America, would have absolutely none of it.
Pacheco noted that Sheriff Joe Arpaio gave her a hug when she asked nearly five years ago.
If you thought Coulter was controversial in turning the illegal immigrant’s request down, as is her style, she didn’t back down on anything thereafter either.
During the same interview, (Jorge) Ramos confronted Coulter about her belief that Americans should “fear immigrants” from Mexico “more than ISIS.”
“I have a little tip,” Coulter told him. “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.”
Pressed by Ramos to explain the basis of her argument, Coulter said that “there are cultures that are obviously deficient” and that if that were not the case the host would never [have] immigrated to America.
“America is the best in the world, and we are about to lose it,” she warned. “Everyone who lives here is going to lose that.”
Coulter’s love of America trumps the gotcha games illegals may want to play, and she refuses to hide it.
Comment: Did Ann Coulter overreact to the request of an illegal immigrant, or was it a perfect response?
