Ann Coulter and Geraldo Rivera clashed on Tuesday night over illegal immigration and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trumps controversial claim that Mexico is sending people that have lots of problems to America.
When Mexico sends its people, theyre not sending their best, Trump said when announcing his candidacy. Theyre sending people that have lots of problems, and theyre bringing those problems with us. Theyre bringing drugs. Theyre bringing crime. Theyre rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.
Coulter, who takes a hard line on illegal immigration, didnt defend Trump directly but said she believes the government should be using the immigration system to benefit American citizens.
These are not people who have a right to be here, so I dont care if there are two rapists. I dont care if there are two people coming in who are collecting [benefits], she said. Immigration is a government policy like any other, and it ought to be used to benefit the people already living here.
Coulter also pushed back against Riveras claim earlier this week that illegal immigrants have a lower crime rate than American citizens.
The idea that immigrants are creating crime at a lower rate than the native population is preposterous, she said, My complaint was that the government wont simply count and tell us, so whatever facts there are its always people looking at ancillary facts.
Rivera hit back, calling Coulters premise as well as the title of her new book, Adios, America! an insulting insinuation that Latinos are somehow going to pervert and drag down and degrade the America we all know and love.
This is an insult, he said, going on to claim that the big cities that are known to have an illegal immigrant presence now have lower crime levels

We can surmise from the prison population regarding the ETHNICITY and the BACKGROUND of those who are there as to how many are illegals.
A casual perusal of the Most Wanted lists also suggests that the government may not have our best interests in mind when deciding who gets to live in America.
Here is the Los Angeles Police Departments list of Most Wanted criminal suspects:
Jesse Enrique Monarrez (murder),
Cesar Augusto Nistal (child molestation),
Jose A. Padilla (murder),
Demecio Carlos Perez (murder),
Ramon Reyes, (robbery and murder),
Victor Vargas (murder),
Ruben Villa (murder)
The full Most Wanted list doesnt get any better.
There arent a lot of Mexicans in New York state half of all Mexican immigrants in the U.S. live in either Texas or California and yet there are more Mexican prisoners in New York than there are inmates from all of Western Europe.
If the media were doing their job, they could CHECK the immigration background of these Mexicans.

First of all, Whorealdo, you’re dead wrong.
Second, you’re doubling down on your foolishness by locking horns with Ann. She actually went easy on you.
You may not be so lucky next time.
Does Whorealdo lock his front door at night? Or does he leave it open and assume that everyone who might come in only has the best of intentions?
Bottom line, if I wanted to live in Mexico I’d move there.
I want to live in Phoenix with an American culture and the English language. I don’t want law made under the influence of illegal aliens mobbing the streets and calling everyone racist.
I’m homesick and I haven’t moved from my home. How did that happen?
I don’t even have to see the program to know what Heraldo did. He didn’t acknowledge anything bad is taking place, and instead tried to blame folks for addressing reality from the stance that they are racists.
This is why I’d get his ass off FoxNews if I had any power to do it.
I do believe there are arguments to be made that may defend the illegals without doing so like Heraldo does.
It takes some smarts and honesty. These are two things Heraldo is sadly lacking.
If you’ve got a problem, you admit to it and look for fixes. This clown has never seen a problem to begin with.
Dump his ass Fox.
Even the people of Mexico openly say that most of the immigrants who have come up here are the lazy, unmotivated types that don’t want to study anything. They actually say that in Mexico!!!!!!!!!!!!
Why would you want to kick him off. Every time he argues with someone like Ann he proves how vacuous the left’s arguments are.
Kind of like keeping an animal in a zoo.
Fix me some more popcorn.
She went very easy on him.
Whoreldo is such a freeloading mooch enabler his own Son, Daughter In law are on Obamacare getting a subsidy, while he hauls in 6 figure income.
Take care of your own Jerkaldo before you run your mouth!
Illegal aliens (immigrants) are by definition criminals.
Ann should know this, so why isn’t she saying it?
Well said. I feel exactly the same and so, I’m sure, do many others.
Whorealdo’s income is likely mid SEVEN figures.
She says it in her book several times.
Has Jerry Rivers ever been right on anything??
Whoraldo is always wrong, and if not...he's lying. But he'd make a great dish-washer.
They are releasing murderers, kidnappers, sex criminals, and drunk drivers into the American populace because their home countries won't take them back?
And they released even more last year?
How the hell is all hell not breaking loose?
This is insane, the apparatchiks and the politicians and judges responsible for this need to go to jail.
START IMMIGRATION REFORM BY CATCHING THESE MFS AND SENDING THEM BACK TO WHERE THEY CAME FROM.
Their countries dont want them back, TOO DAMN BAD.
This is impeachable.
Republicans in Congress have proposed rewriting the law to allow for longer detention of serious criminals, and have called on the Obama administration to use existing powers to deny visas to leaders of countries that refuse to take their citizens back.
But the administration has declined to take those steps.
Those released from custody are generally supposed to be monitored, and Ms. Saldana vowed to stiffen those procedures to try to ensure those that are released are not able to commit new crimes.
The RIGHT WING needs to take matters in hand.
The marxists in DC have now elected to dispatch a LEGION OF ILLEGAL ALIEN MURDERERS, KIDNAPPERS, SEX CRIMINALS, AND DRUNK DRIVERS INTO THE AMERICAN POPULACE.
This cannot stand, these are not your standard illegal aliens, these are HARD CORE FELONS, and their release into the populace undermines the HUSSEIN Administrations narrative that they are going to grant amnesty to garden variety ILLEGAL ALIENS to concentrate on criminals
This is a goddamned CPUSA conspiracy, the CPUSA is in control of DHS.
Those responsible must be brought to justice.
The CPUSA controlled HUSSEIN BARAKA ADMINISTRATION wages war against REAL AMERICANS on a daily basis on an unlimited number of fronts.
They time release of damaging information to coincide with other world events in order to deflect attention.
THESE 150,000 MURDERERS, KIDNAPPERS, SEX CRIMINALS, AND DRUNK DRIVERS NEED TO BE HUNTED DOWN LIKE DOGS AND EXPELLED!!!!!!!!!
Sneaking into my country is an insult, Heraldo.
