Donald Trump Complained Too Many Immigrants Come From "Shithole" Countries, Reports Say

Donald Trump Complained Too Many Immigrants Come From

"Why are we having all these people from s--hole countries come here?"

Many of the National Football League players who protested by taking a knee during the anthem did so to protest police brutality against black people.

The pact also includes restrictions on immigrants' abilities to bring relatives to the US and termination of a visa lottery system that has helped gain entry for people from African and other diverse countries.

Another black Democratic lawmaker, Cedric Richmond, said Mr Trump's comments "are further proof that his Make America Great Again agenda is really a Make America White Again agenda".

Past administrations have typically extended temporary protected status as it expired.

The White House did not deny the comment, which has been confirmed by other U.S. media.

We are talking about the President of the United States here!

First, some context. Things had gotten testy in the Oval Office as negotiations over an immigration bill hit the rocks.

Only one Democrat, Sen.

During the meeting in the Oval Office, Trump wasn't happy with the idea pitched by senators Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill.). He and the GOP never cared about immigration just World Health Organization immigrated.

"It's not even a fig leaf".

"I'm hopeful it will lead to a breakthrough", Graham, who has forged a close relationship with Trump despite their prior political rivalry, told reporters afterward.

The president apparently wants to roll back protections for immigrants from said "shithole countries". Trump met Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg on the day before. The proposal includes $2.7 billion in border security spending, not $2.7 million.

When Trump indicated he would agree to that, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy said border security would have to be part of the package, prompting Trump to say that's what he thought Feinstein meant, and then a flurry of clarifications.

Legislation to do this would change the rules on immigration, allocating a larger share of green cards to people who qualify on the basis of education and skills and fewer to foreign relatives of U.S. citizens and residents.

By late Thursday, lawmakers were reacting to the reported comments. As Durbin listed the countries that would benefit, Trump questioned why they should benefit. "I don't get that", said No. 2 Senate Republican John Cornyn of Texas.

Republican senator Jeff Flake of Arizona, a member of a bipartisan working group focused on finding a legislative solution for Dreamers, the young people who came to the country illegally as children, set off a firestorm when he announced that the six negotiators had reached an agreement.
