Outspoken conservative Ann Coulter says lawmakers’ proposals for amnesty, school tuition and drivers’ licenses for illegal immigrants must stop because “the country has not voted to turn itself into Mexico.”
“How many times do these Republicans have to try pushing amnesty and in-state tuition and drivers’ licenses then, suddenly, they discover, oops, the dogs don’t like it? They try to back pedal but no one trusts them anymore anyway because it is just such a God-awful idea.” Coulter told “The Steve Malzberg Show” on Newsmax TV.
“We’re a country. We are not a department store. We have to have some control over who comes into this country.”
“I was thinking the other day it really is a dirty trick the Democrats have pulled because the vast majority of illegal immigrants are Hispanics, mostly Mexican, and you have to love them, they’re such hard workers, and it’s out of no animosity toward them,” she said.
“But the country has not voted to turn itself into Mexico. I love Mexicans, I love Mexican food. I don’t want this country to be Japan or Sweden either. What’s the matter with America as it is?”
