"People feel they're not wanted and that this country is divisive", Streets said.
During a meeting with several senators in the Oval Office, President Trump reportedly questioned why the USA would accept more immigrants from "s***hole countries".
The president reportedly questioned why the United States would accept more immigrants from Haiti and "shithole countries" in Africa rather than nations like Norway.
The compromise reached by Mr. Durbin and others incorporates a modified version of the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act, the measure that gave undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children their "Dreamer" label.
While campaigning in 2016, Trump came to Little Haiti and told a small group of Haitian Americans that he wanted to be their "biggest champion".
"In the course of (Trump's) comments, he said things that were hate-filled, vile and racist", the IL senator said Friday. The president said he has a wonderful relationship with Haitians and suggested future meetings probably should be recorded. Durbin recounted that Trump went on to discuss similarly protected immigration from Africa, "calling the nations they come from s--holes".
Democrats have not budged on their demand that the almost 800,000 illegal aliens shielded from deportation by the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program be given amnesty, along with their parents who brought them here illegally.
Donald Trump's doctor says he is in excellent health, after the 71-year-old president underwent his first medical examination Friday since taking office, the White House said. Haitians who come to the U.S. add to the country's glory, he insisted.
"The President is in excellent health and I look forward to briefing some of the details on Tuesday", Dr Jackson added in a short statement.
Some Republican apologists already have attempted to explain away Trump's crudeness as they usually do: He is not a career politician, they note, so he is prone to use language that they wouldn't use. Trump said, according to people familiar with the meeting.
Earlier, the government of Botswana had announced that it had summoned the U.S. ambassador to explain Trump's comments, reportedly made on Thursday at a White House meeting on immigration. He's said to have questioned why the USA would accept more immigrants from Haiti and "s--hole countries" in Africa.
Hunder said he expects Trump will hear from Haitian President Jovenel Moise and African leaders about the vulgar remark.
For Haitian immigrants, huge problems also persist. In a very strongly-worded statement following the alleged comments, the UN's spokesman on human rights told reporters: "There is no other word one can use but racist".
