GOP strategist Ana Navarro on Tuesday blasted Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) for celebrating the first deportation of a “Dreamer” during President Trump’s tenure.

"Lame, intellectual peep-squeak seeks attention," Navarro said of King. "Since he can't get anything done, only time he gets it, is when he attacks immigrants."

King on Tuesday celebrated reports that federal agents had deported Juan Manuel Montes despite the 23-year-old’s participation in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

“First non-valedictorian DREAMer deported,” he tweeted alongside an image of a beverage mug. “Border Patrol, this one’s for you.”

Montes, who first arrived in the U.S. at age 9, is reportedly now in his native Mexico despite his DACA status.

DACA lets qualifying undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as children obtain education and work permits and relief from deportation.

Former President Obama first implemented DACA in June 2012, and it now has 750,000 participants.
