Conservative commentator Ann Coulter took to Twitter Friday night to decry “Muslim immigration” and push Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign in the hours after the string of attacks in Paris that left more than 127 dead.

Coulter, a Fox News contributor well known for her internet diatribes against Muslims, Jews, and Mexican immigrants, said the tragedy all but ensured Americans would elect Trump the next President strong stance on immigration.

She also used the opportunity to take shots at other Republican presidential candidates’ records on immigration, including former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush’s heavily criticized remarks that entering the country illegally can be an “act of love” to keep families together.

Coulter also hit Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, who has supported a path to citizenship for immigrants who have entered the country illegally.

The pundit also parroted the frequent argument by conservatives after violent tragedies that the carnage may have been avoided if the victims had been armed.
