Coulter: ‘Zero immigrants should be collecting government assistance’

Ann Coulter says that last month’s Boston Marathon bombing highlights the necessity of revamping America’s immigration laws so the nation accepts fewer low-skill immigrants from the third world.

“As I’ve mentioned before, Teddy Kennedy’s 1965 immigration act was specifically designed to bring in mostly third-world immigrants and to block immigrants from the countries that we’ve traditionally taken immigrants from with a made-up America, i.e. Europe, heavily Europe,” Coulter said on the Fox News Channel Tuesday. “And so, I went through just, I mean, recent mass murders committed by immigrants who come here, can’t make it in this country, they are angry at the country and lash out at Americans. There are about a dozen of them.”

“Just in 2010, 2011, 2012 committed by immigrants who were not, you know, doing the jobs Americans wouldn’t do,” she continued. “They were here like suspect one and suspect two, which by the way, have become the popular way to identify them because no one can pronounce their names. You know, they are here, their families are on welfare, the suspects are on welfare. And meanwhile, you know, they’re talking about how they hate America.”

The author of “Mugged: Racial Demagoguery from the Seventies to Obama” then said America’s current immigration laws favor immigrants without the skills necessary to quickly assimilate.

“Not only that cultural difference, but because our immigration policy does not discriminate in favor ever people who are educated, who speak English, who have skills we need — we are bringing in, you know, push cart operators or these guys up in Boston who had no visible skills,” she said. “I mean, the one — the father talking about, ‘oh, he was going to be a great doctor.’ He was studying to be a nurse and he was failing all of his courses. How is this an addition to America?

“And the point, the important point I think, you have recent immigrants, 85 percent from the third world,” Coulter continued. “More than 60 percent of them need government assistance. Now, you know, the amnesty advocates like Rubio will say, ‘Oh, but it’s only 30 percent more than the native born Americans.’ And my point is zero immigrants should be collecting government assistance. If you are collecting government assistance, it seems to me, can’t we all agree you were not the kind of immigrant we need in America here? Zero immigrants should be committing mass murder.”
