Ann Coulter: My Immigration Plan Would ‘Not Admit Overweight Girls’ Into US

Ann Coulter, conservative columnist, said Friday in an email to Breitbart News that if she ran the immigration system, she wouldn’t “admit overweight girls” into the US.

Coulter’s comments were reportedly made in response to a question about an incident that occurred on Tuesday when Coulter refused to hug an undocumented immigrant during an audience Q&A on the cable network Fusion.

“When I’m in charge of immigration (after our 10 year moratorium), I will not admit overweight girls,” Coulter told Breitbart.

During her appearance on Fusion, Coulter was asked by undocumented Ecuadorian immigrant Gaby Pacheco whether she could give Coulter a hug as “as a sign of my humanity and yours.”

Coulter rejected the request, saying she had a cold and coughing loudly before saying: “Let’s get on with the question.”

Coulter was on the network to promote her book “Adios America.”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.

Sincerely,
TPM Staff
