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.

President Donald Trump is looking for a way out of the shutdown debacle he previously said he'd be "proud" to own.

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.
