USA take immigrants from 'sh*thole countries'

"Given the historical reality of how African Americans arrived in the United States as slaves, and the United States being the biggest example of how a nation has been built by migration - for a statement like that to come is particularly upsetting", AU spokeswoman Ebba Kalondo said.

"America's racial, ethnic and religious diversity is a critical source of our strength as a nation", part of Sullivan's tweet said. "In reforming immigration we can not lose these American Ideals".

In his statement Friday, Graham, who challenged Trump when he made the "shithole" comment, encouraged lawmakers to look past the incident and come to a solution.

Sen. Dick Durbin, an Illinois Democrat, on Friday told reporters that Trump questioned why the USA would accept more immigrants from Haiti and that he referenced "shithole countries" in Africa.

He did not say specifically what Trump said that caused him to respond, but his defense of American values make clear that the gist was Trump's stunning comments that drew wall-to-wall media coverage Friday. "Take them out", Trump also reportedly said.

Trump himself denied making the comment, but in vague terms, on Twitter.

"Shithole was the exact word used once not twice but repeatedly", Mr Durbin was quoted to have said.

Yesterday, she heard her president vilely refer to her home as a "s--hole country", Bell said, "and it is upsetting to her".

He also said he appreciated Durbin's statements, and he remains committed to a bipartisan solution to keep Dreamers in the country.

Unfortunately for Cotton and Purdue, Republican Lindsey Graham of SC was also there, and he told his fellow senator from that state, Tim Scott, that the reported comments are "basically accurate".

Trump is reacting on Twitter Friday, after reports that he questioned why the US would accept more immigrants from Haiti and "shithole countries" in Africa rather than places like Norway. "Do we need more Haitians?'" Durbin recounted, NBC News reported.

Thousands of African and Haitian immigrants call North Texas home, and many were shocked and disappointed in the comments.

The Rev. Robert Jeffress of First Baptist Dallas says that, apart from the reported choice of words, "Trump is right on target in his policy".

"Because of the Democrats not being interested in life and safety, DACA has now taken a big step backwards", Trump added.

President Donald Trump greets Sen. "Whether he did or not, I have personally been to those places and found them to be attractive and exciting". And with his use of derisive language at the Thursday meeting, it's an open question whether the compromise can be resuscitated.

"These are shocking and shameful comments from the President of the United States", said Colville during a news briefing in Geneva.

Trump denied on Friday using such derogatory language, but he was widely condemned in many African countries and in Haiti and El Salvador, and by global rights organisations.

Ryan said his ancestors were Irish and 'were really looked down upon.' He called immigration 'a attractive story of America ' and said Africans in his hometown of Janesville, Wisconsin, are 'incredible citizens'.
