In a series of tweets from her official social media account Tuesday, immigration hawk Ann Coulter registered her disappointment with the decision made by President Trump on the "DREAM act," an amnesty program for children brought into the country illegally.
"That's great. Sarah Huckabee Sanders says Trump wants COMPREHENSIVE IMMIGRATION REFORM!" she tweeted about the White House Press briefing after the decision was announced. "Exactly what he used to denounce."

Attorney General Jeff Sessions issued the official policy of the Trump administration Tuesday. While he indicated that Trump would rescind the memo issued by former President Obama implementation the DACA program, he also said it would be delayed for six months.
Trump indicated that Congress would be given a chance to pass a bill enabling DACA, which stands for "Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals," to continue.
Coulter appeared to respond angrily to the clarification by White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders that the administration preferred a comprehensive bill to address immigration rather than a standalone implementation of DACA.

Weird how Huckabee Sanders obsessively attacks congress. Trump's not going to get out of betraying voters on the wall by blaming congress.— Ann Coulter (@Ann Coulter)1504635052.0
"Weird how Huckabee Sanders obsessively attacks congress," she noted. "Trump's not going to get out of betraying voters on the wall by blaming congress."
She tweeted with a healthy dose of acerbic sarcasm.
Huckabee Sanders is calling for Congress to pass amnesty. NICE! That's just what you won on, Mr. President!— Ann Coulter (@Ann Coulter)1504635564.0
Trump's decision was also slammed by the left, but for opposite reasons. Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said the decision was cowardly and praised the DREAMers for their patriotism. Former President Obama also excoriated the decision in a long Facebook post issued Tuesday.
