Ann Coulter has attacked Marco Rubio as the Florida senator continues to push his bipartisan plan on immigration.
After Rubio spent Tuesday talking immigration reform on Rush Limbaugh’s radio show, Coulter blasted the GOP senator in a Human Events column. Coulter said Rubio, whose new immigration plan would allow unauthorized immigrants to apply for citizenship, risks winning more votes for Democrats. Coulter writes:
“Some Republicans seem determined to create more Democratic voters, too. That will be the primary result of Sen. Marco Rubio’s amnesty plan.”
Coulter’s argument stems from the theory that Democrats are only pursuing immigration reform to “create” more Democratic voters. The right-wing writer claims that Rubio’s plans would legalize 11.2 million new Democratic voters. She adds:
“Rubio’s bill is nothing but amnesty. It isn’t even “amnesty thinly disguised as border enforcement.” This is a wolf in wolf’s clothing.
“Despite all the blather about how Rubio demands “Enforcement First!” the very first thing his proposal does is make illegal aliens legal. (Don’t call them “illegal aliens”!)”
Coulter goes on to pin the blame for California’s budget problems on Hispanic voters and suggests the entire US will suffer in the same way should Rubio have his way:
“With Hispanics on track to become the largest ethnic group in California this year, the state that gave us Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan is incapable of electing any Republican statewide anymore. Taxes keep going up, and there’s no one left to pay the bill.
“That will be our entire country if Republicans fall for Rubio’s phony “Enforcement First!” plan. Perplexingly, some Republicans seem determined to turn the whole nation into California, in the foolish hope of winning one last election.”
