Donald Trump and Ann Coulter are in hot water right now.
Liberals and even some conservatives are taking them to task for some controversial statements they made in recent weeks.
Trump drew the ire of liberals nationwide when he said this about the problem of illegal immigration in the U.S.
“The U.S. has become a dumping ground for everybody else’s problems. When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best…. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us.
“They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists,” he said, adding, “And some, I assume, are good people.”
Ann Coulter looking to defend the Donald reiterated his talking points.
The political commentator said in reality the things the media is preoccupied with, things like an ISIS attack and more shark attacks are far less deadly than the threat illegal immigrants pose.
“Going into this weekend, the media was consumed with stories about, you know, ‘Americans have to be on the lookout for ISIS attacks’ and, ‘Terror attack expected’ — and, ‘Ooh, shark attacks!” Coulter said on “Fox & Friends.” “I will bet you by the end of the weekend, more Americans will have been killed by Mexicans than by ISIS or by sharks.”
And if anyone were to be completely objective about it, both Trump and Coulter are absolutely right.
It’s hard to argue with simple facts
Shortly after Trump made his remarks a woman was gunned down randomly at a popular destination in San Francisco.
The suspect in the case had a long criminal record and has been deported from the U.S. a whopping five times prior!
The death of the 32-year-old woman is obviously a tragedy, but what makes it worse is the fact our porous borders invite in some of the worst criminals in the world, and there’s no one there to stop them!
In fact the suspect in the death came here knowing it would be easy to stay, no matter what he did
ABC News reported.
Sanchez told KGO-TV that he kept coming back to the United States because he was “looking for jobs in the restaurant or roofing, landscaping, or construction.”
He said he knew San Francisco was a sanctuary city where he would not be pursued by immigration officials.
It’s not that Trump and Coulter are trying to be divisive, they’re just using the only kind of language they can to draw attention to a very real, and very pressing problem.
An immigration situation that is responsible for untold financial loss and personal devastation.
It would be hard for anyone to argue a more secure border wouldn’t keep Americans safer, especially given how many undocumented illegals make it into the country every year.
