Democratic Congresswoman Called Out Donald Trump as a 'Racist' on Her Local News and Now She's Doubling Down
Congresswoman Deb Haaland (D-NM) made history when, earlier this year, she became one of the first Native American representatives elected to the United States Congress.
But Haland's work had only begun from there. Since her election, she's been serving on the Committee for Armed Services and the Committee for Natural Resources.
Ann Coulter Has Had It With Donald Trump After He Says He Wants to Make a Deal With Democrats to Allow Dreamers to Stay
The woman who wrote two books singing the praises of President Donald Trump, Ann Coulter, now sings a different tune. Increasingly frustrated over his broken campaign promises—like his border wall paid for by Mexico, Coulter criticizes the President almost daily.
Often railing against immigrants from certain parts of the world—like her Fox News counterparts Laura Ingraham and Tomi Lahren—Coulter was particularly riled by Trump's recently announced plan to compromise with Democrats on Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and reopen a pathway for DREAMers to gain citizenship. DREAMers—so named for the proposed Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act—were in the news this week as the Supreme Court heard arguments for and against Trump's plan to end DACA.
Donald Trump Proposed a Deal With Democrats to Finally Get His Wall, and Ann Coulter's Response Might Be Her Sickest Burn Yet
President Donald Trump is looking for a way out of the shutdown debacle he previously said he'd be "proud" to own. Now the longest government shutdown in history, the President attempted to sweeten the deal for Democrats, offering three years of protection from deportation to those protected under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy.
But in doing so, he may have made things worse for himself, especially where far-Right pundit Ann Coulter is concerned.
A Judge Ordered the Trump Administration to Restore the DACA Program for DREAMers, and Jeff Sessions Just Responded
President Donald Trump's efforts to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program was dealt a blow on Friday when a federal judge ordered the administration to fully restore the program designed to prevent the deportation of children of undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States by their parents.
In May, the Trump administration unveiled a new zero tolerance policy for all immigrants entering the United States without prior authorization. The move may appeal to President Donald Trump's base, but the negative ramifications are now evident in a new CNN Trump job approval poll.
Trump's approval rating, specifically related to immigration, dropped 5 percentage points in just one month to hit a new all-time low.
Living in the United States without proper documentation is not easy, especially as raids on populations of immigrants living in small communities across the nation are rapidly increasing under the Trump administration’s watch.
The men and women of America’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) make arrests daily. North Carolina is a recent and significant example, where ICE arrested at least 40 people in the second week of April alone, according to ICE spokesman Brian Cox.
The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) was an executive action taken by President Barack Obama in 2012 due to inaction on immigration reform, specifically the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act. The law was meant to address the question of what to do about the undocumented immigrants brought into the United States as children by their parents.
Do you punish a person for an action they had no control over?
