Ann Coulter on Diversity: We're Not More Diverse. We're More Mexican.

Tuesday night Ann Coulter shut down Fusion TV host Jorge Ramos when he tried to tell her the numbers in her new book, Adios America, were wrong. In the book, out on Monday, June 1, Coulter estimates that the number of undocumented immigrants in America is about 30 million—not 11 million, as Ramos insisted.

“The number we keep hearing is 11 million, 11 million, 11 million. That’s so weird! It’s been 11 million for a decade,” Coulter said. “I’m sorry, it defies common sense that in the last decade, not one more illegal alien has come.” Her 30 million figure, which she explains in detail in Adios America, comes from a Bear Stearns study of several factors, including school enrollment in illegal alien hotspots, housing permits in illegal alien hotspots, and remissions of money back to Mexico.

The author of 10 New York Times bestsellers also disputed the popular argument that Republicans need to court Hispanic votes to win the White House. “Ronald Reagan won the smallest percentage of the minority vote and won the largest electoral landslide in history,” said Coulter.

When asked her favorite among the Republican candidates, Coulter threw her support behind Scott Walker and had harsh words for Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, and Ted Cruz, who she accused of supporting amnesty.

Ramos tried to argue that America’s growing diversity is a good thing for the country. “What’s wrong with diversity?” he asked Coulter, who quickly pointed out that “when a third of all immigrants come from one country… it’s not more diverse. It’s more Mexican.”

She noted that a quarter of the Mexican population is here, and asked Ramos, “At what point will we have taken in enough? The entire Mexican population?”

Adios America, Coulter's widely anticipated 11th book, is due out on Monday and is expected to be the most controversial work of her career. It is available for pre-order now on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
