Default Ann Coulter Turns on President Trump over ‘DACA Lovefest’ Meeting

Disclaimer: I'm not a fan of Ann Counter because some of the things she has written and said IMO sound insane; however, occasionally I agree with her. DACA is an issue where my thoughts align with hers.

Ann Coulter, conservative commentator and consistent supporter of President Donald Trump, has turned on the president after his bipartisan meeting on Tuesday to discuss the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and other immigration policies.

On Tuesday a judge blocked Trump's September decision to end the program, which followed a meeting the president held with Republicans and Democrats to discuss immigration policy.

That evening, Coulter posted a series of angry tweets that accused Trump of conducting the “DACA lovefest” meeting to counter negative press from the recently released Michael Wolff book, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.

“Trump, flanked by Dems & open-borders GOPS, announces plan for 100% open-ended amnesty (per courts),” Coulter, the author of In Trump We Trust, shared on Twitter, before adding, ““But don’t worry! There will be ‘border security’! (Political euphemism for: You’re not getting wall.)”

She concluded that "nothing" Wolff had written in his tell-all book could hurt his image as much as “the DACA lovefest.”

Trump promised rigid immigration laws during his campaign, including a border wall between Mexico and the U.S., and Coulter's criticisms are aimed at the president's apparent willingness to make concessions on his hardline policies.

At his meeting in the White House with Republican and Democratic lawmakers, Trump discussed policies to protect more than 800,000 DREAMer immigrants from deportation, reported USA Today, a direct contradiction of policies Trump promised his supporters during his campaign.

Speaking to Lou Dobbs on FOX Business, Coulter said that the meeting marked “the lowest day in the Trump presidency.” https://www.yahoo.com/news/ann-coult...120146914.html
DACA was illegal, because Obama, acting like a dictator and not the constitutional president, bypassed Congress to invent this action, kicking the can down the road so that HE didn't have to deal with it. Those who were illegally brought here as children are not "dreamers" and are no longer children; they are now adults who remain in this country illegally.

While campaigning, Trump talked about immigration reform, and that is a major issue that caused many to vote for him. There is no legitimate reason for DACA to even be part of a budget deal, and if Trump signs legislation granting those people amnesty, he will lose a large part of his base, giving Democrats a win in 2020.

Furthermore, this talk of amnesty has caused another surge of unaccompanied minors crossing the border. I heard on the radio yesterday that current U.S. law means these children cannot be returned to their countries, once again sticking taxpayers with the costs of dealing with them. That law needs to be changed.
If I had a dollar for every gender, I would have two dollars.
