Coulter’s Ego: I Did It!

Illegal immigration and sanctuary cities have caught the attention of both the public and politicians. Outraged citizens, anti-immigration activists, non-profit organizations, the media, lawmakers, and presidential candidates have weighed in on the escalating immigration crisis.

And Ann Coulter takes the credit.[1]

Last Friday, when asked about the depth and intensity of interest in illegal immigration, Coulter jumped in, claiming, “Because of Adios, America![2]

Ann, never shy, immediately added, “Everyone always says to me, ‘Oh, what good timing this book was.’ No, it’s not good timing. The book came out – that’s why everybody’s talking about [immigration].”

(Yet, in interview after interview, Coulter has complained that the mainstream media is completely ignoring her. How can this circle be squared?)

No, Ann. The intense interest in illegal immigration did not arise because of the publication of Adios, America! It arose because of a human tragedy.

The face of the movement to end sanctuary cities and enforce existing immigration laws is not that of Ann Coulter but of Kathryn Steinle, a 32-year-old woman murdered by an illegal alien who had been deported five times and had returned to San Francisco for sanctuary.

The public, politicians, and other concerned citizens are responding to this tragedy, not Coulter’s book.[3] (Nor Trump’s campaign.)[4]

It’s called “Kate’s Law,” not “Ann’s Law.”

Let’s show some respect for the dead and the bereaved.
