As Republican presidential debates and primaries approach, we can expect almost all candidates to sound tough on illegal immigration, regardless of their record or actual beliefs. This tough talk usually begins and ends with lofty rhetoric about how Republicans support legal immigration, just not illegal immigration.

But the 2016 candidates have a surprise in store, thanks to Ann Coulter’s new book, Adios, America! The Left’s Plan to Turn Our Country into a Third World HellholeCoulter forcefully dismantles both left wing clichés and Republican bromides.

Instead of bringing a knife to a gun flight in typical Republican fashion, Ann Coulter brings a howitzer. To use a baseball analogy, Republican candidates better be prepared for fewer softballs in the upcoming debates. Immigration is not going to be a “side issue” in 2016, it is THE issue.

Coulter does not fall for the trap that the only problem with illegal immigration is that it’s illegal. If this were true, then why not just abolish borders and make them all legal? That’s pretty much the “fix” espoused by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

Coulter explains why massive legal immigration is also a big problem – for American workers, for our schools, our health care system, public welfare and just about every facet of our culture.

Adios, America! reveals how the sheer number of immigrants and the criteria we use to select them — which prioritizes family reunification, refugees, and even a lottery over highly skilled immigrants– ensures that the legal immigrant population creates almost as many social problems as the surging illegal alien cohort.

  • The majority of the 9-11 hijackers were here legally—and all of them entered legally.
  • More than 52 percent of immigrant households have someone on welfare.
  • Low-skilled immigrants depress the wages of the most needy Americans, while country clubs prosper.
  • Birthright citizenship” cheapens the value of American citizenship for everyone—and no, it is not mandated by the 14th Amendment, no matter what your congressman’s form letter reply tells you.

Where did immigration policy go wrong? Coulter rightfully blames Ted Kennedy’s 1965 Immigration Act for this devastation...
