Ann Coulter: 'Zero Immigrants Should Be Collecting Government Assistance' (VIDEO)

05/01/2013 08:54 am ET

Ann Coulter appeared on Sean Hannity's Fox News show Tuesday night and argued that those who immigrate to the United States should be banned from receiving government aid.

Coulter responded to news reports that described how one of the Boston bombing suspects received welfare assistance while living in the U.S. Last week, ABC News reported that Tamerlan, the older brother who was killed during a firefight with police officers, received welfare benefits until 2012.

"My point is: zero immigrants should be collecting government assistance," she said. "If you are collecting government assistance, it seems to me, can't we all agree that you are not the kind of immigrant we need in America here?"

She later added, "We know we have our own native-born losers, murderers, welfare recipients -- fine we'll deal with them," she said.

"But we're importing more," host Sean Hannity said.

Coulter has used the Boston Marathon bombings to attack immigration reform. After Tamerlan was killed and a manhunt for his brother, the second suspect, ensued, Coulter tweeted, "It's too bad Suspect # 1 won't be able to be legalized by Marco Rubio, now."

Watch the exchange, which comes about 4 minutes into the video above.
