New York Times best-selling author Ann Coulter can’t help but make headlines with her liberal-incinerating scorchers, but this time, we are scratching our heads! The populist conservative was in the news again on Sunday lamenting the lame state of federal immigration policy and laying the blame at the feet of Trump’s predecessor Barack Hussein Obama.
Ms. Coulter told Larry O’Connor in an interview that the number one priority for President Trump’s administration should be deporting the nearly 800,000 illegal aliens who have been insulated from deportation by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
Curiously, the firebrand insisted that DACA illegal aliens should be prioritized for deportation even before members of the violent El Salvadorian MS-13 gang!
Check it out, per Breitbart:
“The one thing Trump should remember, especially now that he’s under attack I mean more than I think ever before, is he has the power to overcome all of this. I mean, he could sell Ivanka merchandise from the White House, he could refuse to be in the White House, he could govern from Mar-a-Lago, if he would just build the wall and deport illegals, starting with the DREAMers.
“I’m 100 percent for deporting DREAMers first. The order should be DREAMers, then felons, and then you know just random illegals as they come to our attention. We can be discretionary on that. But DREAMers, number one.
“At least the felons, they’re not indignant. They’re not going on TV saying ‘How dare you delay in giving me amnesty, we demand you forgive our law-breaking.’ Oh, the DREAMers are the worst of all. So I put them in line for deportation before the felons. Then we’ll get to the MS-13 members. You’re regular illegal alien, the ones not going on TV every night and demanding amnesty, they’re actually really sweet and hard workers. I’ve always said that about… illegal aliens. They’re so friendly and they really do work hard. So nobody really minds them, it’s the DREAMers who have to go first.”
Coulter made her remarks as the White House is attempting to cut a deal with the Republican establishment to cut legal immigration levels in half, end the disastrous Diversity Visa Lottery, and receive full funding for the proposed border wall.
Their concession? The White House would grant amnesty for DACA-shielded illegal aliens. The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimates that at least 1 in 7 DACA illegal aliens would end up on Medicaid if given legal status and about 1 in 5 would end up on a food stamps program.
What do you think of Ms. Coulter’s idea?
Do you support Trump trading DACA amnesty for the border wall and an end to the Diversity Visa Lottery?
