Conservative columnist Ann Counter is accusing Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) of being like Dr. Jack Kevorkian and helping the Republican Party to perform an assisted suicide by passing an immigration reform bill with “amnesty.”
During a Wednesday interview, Fox News host Sean Hannity asked Coulter to explain her recent column titled, “If the GOP Is This Stupid, It Deserves to Die.”
“[Sen.] Chuck Schumer is playing Marco Rubio, the Jack Kevorkian of the Republican Party,” she opined. “If this amnesty goes through, and it is amnesty, step one is legalization. Everything after that, all the triggers to citizenship are phony triggers. There doesn’t have to be a fence, there doesn’t have to be e-Verify. There just has to be Department of Homeland Security assuring us they have a plan.”
Hannity pressed Coulter about what she thought should be done with the 11 million undocumented immigrants after the border was certified secured if they they were not allowed to become citizens.
“You are like a liberal making a silly argument!” she exclaimed. “It’s a straw man argument. Nobody cares! This idea that it’s an emergency, it’s a crisis, it’s preposterous.”
“If the House passes anything concerning immigration — this is very important, Hannity viewers, so pay attention here — the House passes nothing but, say, e-Verify, it goes into the conference [committee] between the two bodies and it will come out an amnesty bill!” Coulter warned.
“At that point, if it is voted on the Senate and it is voted on in the House, we have amnesty, the country is over and the only thing left for you and me to do, Sean, is to punish the people who destroyed America.”
