Coulter blasts Trump on DACA: 'They can stay. You must go'

Conservative columnist and provocateur Ann Coulter on Tuesday ripped President Trump on Twitter for declaring that "a deal will be made" with Democrats to allow so-called Dreamers to remain in the country.

Trump's pledge that he would work toward helping those protected under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program came as the Supreme Court heard arguments over his move to terminate it.

"Okay, that does it. I give up. They can stay. You must go," wrote Coulter to her more than 2.2 million followers.

Trump was also sharply criticized on the left for referring to some Dreamers as "tough, hardened criminals." 

Coulter, a former Trump supporter, has vocally turned on the president in recent months over the issue of immigration.

"NO WALL. KEEPS SAME MASSIVE LEVELS OF LEGAL IMMIGRATION. And this is the rube-bait campaign document, not even a serious bill," Coulter tweeted regarding an immigration bill Trump was considering earlier this year. 

A central pledge of Trump's 2016 campaign was for a southern border wall that the then-candidate promised Mexico would pay for.
