Trump disparages immigrants from 's***hole countries'

Trump defends immigration stance in tweet Trump in `excellent health,' doctor says after first physical

"We know what we're dealing with: a racist administration", Cristina Jimenez, Executive Director and Co-Founder of the advocacy group United We Dream, said on the same press call Friday.

Democrats such as top negotiator Dick Durbin of IL had long vowed they would not fund the wall, but are accepting the request as part of a broader plan that protects from deportation about 800,000 younger immigrants illegally brought to the country as children. But their victory - first announced by Sen.

"And I think this status, which not only gives legal certainty to the DACA recipients, but also makes it renewable for indefinite times and therefore a permanent situation, and allows recipients of the DACA program to make use of existing paths to green cards, is a much fairer way to do that".

In a statement, Republican Sen.

The Washington Post first reported the comment, which drew fierce condemnation from across the political spectrum.

Trump denounced the deal reached by a group of six Republican and Democratic senators as too weak and insisted he did not use the word "shithole" to describe Haiti and African countries.

Love, the first Haitian-American elected to Congress, whose parents immigrated to the U.S. in the 1970s, went on to detail her family's ties to one of the countries that was maligned by Trump.

"We find this decision to be outrageous, especially in light of the President's successful bipartisan meeting with House and Senate members at the White House on the same day", the White House said in a statement. Chuck Grassley. The House immigration and amnesty bill was introduced January 10 Reps. That meant that negotiating with Democrats and finding a bill that could win their support wasn't an option.

"It's kind of like three pillars: DACA cause we all in the room want to do it; border security, so we're not back out here; and chain migration, it's just three items", enumerated McCarthy. "So maybe it's a negotiating strategy, I don't think it's based in reality, though". He launched his campaign with a speech that accused Mexico of sending its "rapists" across the border and at one point proposed a temporary ban on Muslims entering the United States. "There's a lot of folks who haven't spoken up yet".

Donald Trump: Shock over USA president's migrants remarks
While Trump's various statements have frequently been deemed offensive, Furey said that's no reason to accept them. In Geneva, the United Nations human rights office said the "racist" remarks would incite xenophobia.

That's according to aides familiar with the pact, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the agreement has not yet been made public. The U.S. Catholic bishops "are encouraged by the consensus" that emerged from the meeting that a legislative solution for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program is "urgently needed", said the chairman of the bishops' Committee on Migration.

A group of three Republicans and three Democrats offered a tentative deal Thursday, but it's unclear that Trump and House Republicans will go along.

"Why do we need more Haitians, take them out", two sources told NBC News Trump had said.

The Republicans, however, are finding themselves in a precarious position.

But it was quickly apparent that the details did not pass muster with the President. They don't have a filibuster-proof majority. But not immigrants. They are past the president's racist comments. And Democrats in the Senate have an advantage because there are four Republicans who could join 49 Democrats to pass what the Democrats want and is contrary to what the House passes. We are, by far, the most generous nation in the world for legal immigration.

Dick Durbin of IL, the Senate' s No. 2 Democrat, explained that as part of that deal, a lottery for visas that has benefited people from Africa and other nations would be ended, the sources said, though there could be another way for them to apply.

Underscoring the pitfalls facing the effort, other Republicans also undercut the significance of the deal the half-dozen senators hoped to sell to Trump.

Unfortunately, the White House chose negotiations over one of the more critical issues of our time - control of the border and, thus, genuine sovereignty - to show that the inhabitant of the Oval Office is not stark-raving crackers and, thereby, fit for the presidency.
