The pushback against Donald Trump’s comments about Mexican immigrants is emotional, knee-jerk and not fact-based, according to political commentator and author of the new book ‘Adios, America,’ Ann Coulter. Monday, NBC announced it was cutting ties with Trump following the backlash over the GOP presidential contender’s view that Mexican immigrants are bringing their problems to the U.S. “They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people,” Trump said during his campaign announcement earlier this month. Coulter, who devotes a goodly portion of her new book to immigrant crime and the media’s failure to report fully on the “immigrant crime wave,” points out that arguments against Trump amount to a straw man claim that “not all Mexicans are rapists.” “The point is: Why should America be taking in ANY RAPISTS?” Coulter wrote in an email. “Were we short on rapists? By definition, we’re talking about people who have no right to be here. If Mexico is sending us 2 rapists – THEY’RE SENDING US RAPISTS.” As Coulter points out in “Adios, America,”… “the evidence indicates that they’re sending a lot more than” just two rapists. “Child rape used to be an incredibly rare crime in America,” she explained. “Not anymore! In some Hispanic neighborhoods in the the United States of America, police have given up on even prosecuting statutory rape. It’s a ‘cultural thing.’” Coulter’s book looks at the prevalence of such crimes — noting that the Centers for Disease Control have reported Hispanic children are seven times more likely to give birth between the ages of 10-14 than white children or 1.4 out of every thousand to 0.2 per thousand. Breitbart News, for example, has reported that ICE deported over 860 sex offenders from the state of Texas during the first half of FY 2014, 27 percent of who were convicted of sex crimes against children. According to ICE, Texas has removed more than 2,000 sex offenders every year over the past three years. On drugs, Coulter is equally unequivocal, saying “there’s no question that the majority of heroin and meth in the U.S. is being brought in by Mexicans. See the NYT, Forbes magazine and a billion other mainstream media articles on the topic over the years.” The Washington Post, for example, reports that Mexico and Columbia “account for more than 90 percent of the U.S. heroin supply, and nearly all of it is smuggled into this country by Mexican traffickers.” And as FBI reported in 2013, Mexican Transnational Criminal Organizations work with U.S. based gangs most often to traffic drugs, “as drugs provide the primary source of revenue for US-based gangs while MTCOs control most of the cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, and marijuana trafficked from Mexico into the United States.” Coulter points out that while the evidence surrounds, the government is not good at collecting or disseminating specific statists about immigrant crime. “Why don’t we know exactly how many drug dealers in our prisons are foreigners? Why is our [government] refusing to tell us how many immigrants have been convicted of rape or murder in the U.S.? The [government] won’t tell us and the media cover up immigrant crime, while broadcasting every immigrant who wins a spelling bee. the facts that exist suggest that the immigrant crime wave is enormous,” Coulter wrote, pointing out that her book elaborates on those points.
As usual, Ann is exactly right, and knocks it out of the park! And, kudos to “The Donald” for calling it as he sees it. I’m, personally, not that big of a Donald Trump fan. But, he is right on the money on this issue, as well as the threat we face from China. Anyway, to read the rest of this article, click on the text above.
