Ramos played the race card in response to Coulter's argument that early immigration was divided among multiple countries and cultures -not just one. He suggested that early ‘immigrants' were mostly from European countries, therefore we had no problem with that because it was all ‘white people'.
Ramos followed up by asking Coulter if he thinks America is a “stronger nation” because it’s “more diverse, more tolerant.”
“It’s not more diverse, it’s more Mexican,” Coulter shot back.
“I think it’s more diverse—much more diverse,” Ramos replied.
After Ramos said he thinks “diversity” is “fantastic” and “beautiful,” Coulter wrapped the full segment with a question of her own for him.
“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?”
That’s where Ramos made his stunning admission.
“I think that with the legal system—“ he started to answer.
“Half the Mexican population? The entire Mexican population?” Coulter kept pressing.
“No, I think with the legal system we wouldn’t need and we wouldn’t be having hundreds of people dying crossing the border,” Ramos replied.
“That isn’t an answer to the question,” Coulter corrected him. “One quarter of the Mexican population. How much more do we have to take?”
Ramos dodged again, essentially admitting he supports no limit whatsoever.
“It’s an economic situation,” he said. “As long as you have people here who need immigrants and workers and as long as you have workers needing a job, they’re going to be coming here. It’s an economic situation.”
Ramos wrapped the interview at that point.
Earlier in the interview, Coulter and Ramos sparred about the numbers of illegal aliens in America right now. After noting how he and Coulter were going to have an “honest debate,” Ramos started it off by saying to her: “your numbers are wrong.”
“You are saying on page—right here, on page 72—that the real number of undocumented immigrants is 30 million,” Ramos said to Coulter.
“Yes,” Coulter replied.
“It isn’t,” Ramos followed up.
“I think you’re wrong, as I describe,” Coulter said. “The number we keep hearing is 11 million, 11 million, 11 million, 11 million—that’s so weird. It’s been 11 million for a decade.”
Good for her. Most illegals coming in now are criminals
Good answer to “immigrants”…. the original people who came to this continent were”settlers”…….. not immigrants.
