Ann Coulter has joined the chorus of conservatives lashing out at the Republican House leadership's proposals for immigration reform being discussed at a GOP retreat this week.

House Speaker John Boehner's plan is expected to include offering visas to foreign workers and a path to legalization, although not necessarily citizenship, for the nation's 11 million undocumented immigrants.

"Leave aside the harm cheap labor being dumped on the country does to the millions of unemployed Americans. What does it mean for the Republican Party?" Coulter posted on her blog Wednesday. She said a "stunning report" produced by Phyllis Schlafly — and still embargoed but slipped to her — has a clear-cut answer.

"Citing surveys from the Pew Research Center, the Pew Hispanic Center, Gallup, NBC News, Harris polling, the Annenberg Policy Center, Latino Decisions, the Center for Immigration Studies and the Hudson Institute, Schlafly's report overwhelmingly demonstrates that merely continuing our current immigration policies spells doom for the Republican Party."

Why? "Immigrants — all immigrants — have always been the bulwark of the Democratic Party. For one thing, recent arrivals tend to be poor and in need of government assistance. Also, they're coming from societies that are far more left-wing than our own. History shows that, rather than fleeing those policies, they bring their cultures with them," Coulter wrote.

And at the current rate of immigration, some 1.1 million new immigrants a year, "Republicans will be a fringe party in about a decade," she warned.

Coulter pointed to some of the statistics from Schlafly's report to bolster her point, including the fact that the two largest immigrant groups, Hispanics and Asians, "both overwhelmingly support big government, Obamacare, affirmative action and gun control."

In addition, one poll showed that while 81 percent of native-born citizens think schools should teach students to be proud of being American, only 50 percent of naturalized citizens do.

Another found that Hispanics take a dimmer view of capitalism than even people who describe themselves as "liberal Democrats."

"Reading these statistics, does anyone wonder why Democrats think vastly increasing immigration should be the nation's No. 1 priority?" Coulter asked.

"It would be one thing if the people with these views already lived here. Republicans would have no right to say, 'You can't vote.' But why on Earth are they bringing in people sworn to their political destruction?"

"Republicans have no obligation to assist the Democrats as they change the country in a way that favors them electorally, particularly when it does great harm to the people already here," she concluded.
