Ann Coulter Warns President Not To Be Fooled By Child Actors Pretending to Cry At Border

Political pundit Ann Coulter is known for making controversial statements, but some feel she's now venturing into outright conspiracy theory territory. The conservative author and commentator said on Sunday that most images of children being separated from their parents at the border are nothing more than child actors. She's urging President Donald Trump not to fall for it.

Coulter appeared on Fox News' show 'The Next Revolution' to discuss the current issues with immigration reform. President Trump has gotten a lot of flak from people all over the world because of the way he is cracking down on arresting illegal immigrants. Under Trump's urging, immigration officers have been collecting illegal immigrants and separating parents from children.

According to Trump, separating families is the fault of former President Barack Obama and the Democrats. Being too lenient on illegal immigrants has caused a surge across the border.

"We do not want to separate children from their parents. We do not want adults to bring children into this country unlawfully, placing them at risk," said Attorney General Jeff Sessions. "We cannot and will not encourage people to bring their children by giving them blanket immunity from our laws."

Photos of families being detained, with parents and children being ripped apart by U.S. immigration authorities, have gotten the Trump administration world-wide backlash. Even Catholic bishops held a meeting to write a letter condemning the president’s actions. But Coulter says they’re fake.

“A New Yorker article — the New Yorker is not a conservative publication — they describe how these kids, these kids are being coached. They’re given scripts to read by liberals, according to the New Yorker. Don’t fall for the actor children," she said.

No one has yet located the article to which Coulter referred. She has always advocated a tough stance on immigration. She's even criticized President Trump for being too lenient in his immigration policies, and for not pushing for the wall to be built across the southern border faster.

Some believe that Coulter’s book, ‘Adios America’, provided Trump with a model for his strict immigration policies, but the author is still not happy that implementation isn’t as fast as she would like.

According to Coulter, no one should be fooled by the drama. “I would also say one other thing, these child actors weeping and crying on all the other networks 24/7 right now: do not fall for it, Mr. President. I get very nervous about the president getting his news from TV,” she said.

For years one, extremist political groups have claimed that the government stages tragedies to push along political agendas. There are those who still insist 9/11 was an inside job aimed at pushing for war against Muslims. There are those who say that mass shootings never happened; they claim victims and witnesses are actors trying to fuel an agenda to have the Second Amendment repealed.

There was a time when you had to really go looking for conspiracy stories, but now they're all over social media and websites that try to pass themselves off as legitimate news institutions. Because we live in the age of information, and communication of such ideas is so easy, these kinds of conspiracy theories make it into the public eye.
