During an interview with Ann Coulter to discuss her new book Adios America, Univision’s Jorge Ramos was asked a question by Ann Coulter. “We have taken in one quarter of the entire Mexican population,” Coulter asked him. “At what point will we have taken in enough, in your view?”
His non-answer was enlightening. No matter how hard she pressed, Ramos refused to answer. We’ve taken in about a quarter of the population of Mexico and it seems that isn’t enough for Mr. Ramos.
She said earlier in the interview that it can’t be called diversity if most of the immigrants come from Mexico. Ann Coulter isn’t always the best messenger but her facts are well-researched.
RAMOS: “One last question and you asked we ask on Twitter: Tell me anything new that is not known generally.”
COULTER: “Well, obviously you brought one up – 40 million illegals, not 11.” ***
RAMOS: “It’s 11, it’s 11, Not 40 million.”
COULTER: “More Nigerians than English since the 1970 immigration law,” she said. “Oh, that the people who passed the 1965 immigration law—Teddy Kennedy, the rest of the Democrats—they swore up and down it would not change the ethnic composition of this country. This has been the most dramatic historic ethnic change to any nation in world history. This is with lying to the American people—and without even consulting the American people on it, which is why I’m particularly enraged that every night I can see enthusiasm on MSNBC for ‘the browning of America, the browning of America, the browning of America.’ But if I say, ‘I don’t like what you’ve done,’ oh, that’s racist.”
Ramos then asked Coulter if she thinks America is a “stronger nation” because it’s “more diverse, more tolerant.”
COULTER: It’s not more diverse, it’s more Mexican.”
RAMOS: “I think it’s more diverse—much more diverse.”
Ramos said “diversity” is “fantastic, beautiful.”
COULTER: “We have taken in one quarter of the entire Mexican population. At what point will we have taken in enough, in your view?”
RAMOS: “I think that with the legal system—“ He didn’t finish.
COULTER: “Half the Mexican population? The entire Mexican population?”
RAMOS: “No, I think with the legal system we wouldn’t need and we wouldn’t be having hundreds of people dying crossing the border.”
COULTER: “That isn’t an answer to the question. One quarter of the Mexican population. How much more do we have to take?”
Ramos dodged yet again. What can we take away? If he wanted any limit, he would have said so.
***Earlier in the segment, in addition to not hugging one of the questioners upon request because she was recovering from a flu, Ms. Coulter got into a heated exchange with Mr. Ramos about the lack of diversity when most of the immigrants are coming from Mexico.
