Conservative author Ann Coulter sparred with Jorge Ramos in a video published Tuesday over her statement that immigrants from Mexico pose a greater danger to American security that the Islamic State.
“I have a little tip. 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,” Coulter told Fusion’s Jorge Ramos.
"Very easy to not be killed by ISIS," she added. "Don't fly to Syria."
The comment seemingly took Ramos off guard, who replied, "Are you really saying…we’re talking about 40 million immigrants in this country?”
"Do you think people are biologically disposed to commit crimes?" Ramos followed up with.
Coulter replied "no" to the latter question, but firmly held her position that immigrants pose a greater danger to America, contending some cultures are "obviously deficient."
“There are a lot of problems with that culture,” she said, referring to Mexico. “Hopefully it can be changed. But we can share our culture with other nations without bringing all of their people here.”
“America is the best in the world. And we are about to lose it," Coulter added. "Everyone who lives here is going to lose that.”
Coulter's comments came ahead of her new book "Adios, America!" The conservative pundit has authored several New York Times bestsellers in the past and is known for her outspoken remarks.
