Trump describes El Salvador, Haiti, African nations as 'shithole countries'

Trump has said that any deal to extend DACA must include plans for a wall on the US border with Mexico.

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

According to both newspapers, the president was referring to El Salvador, Haiti and several African countries. When he got to Haiti, Trump asked why the United States wants more people from Haiti and African countries. The surprise was first reported by The Washington Post.

Trump later added, according to a source familiar with the meeting: "Why do we need more Haitians?" The diplomat, appointed in 2015 by then-President Barack Obama, wrote: "The United States values its friendship and relationship with the Salvadoran people".

On Wednesday, the White House also released a corrected transcript with Trump's answer: "I would like to do that".

Local immigration advocates are breathing a sigh of relief after a federal judge ruled against a controversial White House effort.

But the White House said their outline wasn't good enough. Trump ended the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program a year ago but has given Congress until March 5 to find a way to keep it alive.

"There's no bill in the House that could get 300 votes very easily, so we are very happy to negotiate from this bill, that I think will have broad-based support within the Republican conference".

John Cornyn, the Senate's No. 2 Republican, said the ruling would not affect congressional negotiations.

Arizona Republican Jeff Flake told reporters today it has happened.

President Donald Trump on Friday denied using certain "language" during a private meeting with lawmakers as fury spread over his comments about immigrants.

It further packs 4GB RAM and 64GB internal memory and there is a microSD slot for expansion, although the limit is yet unknown. The Snapdragon 652 is a mid-range processor, but that should really be a big deal when it comes to day to day use.

'History teaches us not to blindly trust US': Pakistan Foreign Minister
Pakistan's Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif lashed out at Trump saying they have already refused "to do more " for the US. The Pakistani defence minister, Khurram Dastgir Khan, also took to Twitter (NYSE: TWTR) to respond to Trump.

The proposal presented by the bipartisan Gang of Six was a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants who came to the USA as children - beyond just those who were enrolled in DACA when it ended, according to lawmakers and sources familiar with the meeting.

But tackling an overhaul of a guest worker program alongside DACA and in addition to chain migration, a reworking of the lottery system and more border security - all things the White House has asked for - would force lawmakers into working on a more comprehensive immigration package than many believe there is time for right now. Tom Cotton of Arkansas, would also be in the room.

Trump referred to "shithole countries" in Africa during a meeting Thursday on immigration. Cotton, Perdue, Goodlatte and McCarthy pushed back at the Durbin and Graham proposal.

The comments reportedly alarmed and mystified the people attending the meeting.

We've got this bipartisan group, we're at a deal.

Lorella Praeli, the ACLU's director of immigration policy, says Trump's comments were "directly contrary to the decision Congress made in 1965 to do away with the racist per-country quotas of the past".

Opponents say the current system of family migration creates a security risk by allowing an easy pathway into residency in the United States.

Republican leaders in Congress have said Dreamers should be dealt with separately from government spending, and many have argued that immediate action is unnecessary since the "deadline" is March 5. We can make this land sparkle even more by choosing those we most need, including some unskilled. It was not clear whether the senators' deal would somehow target parents or siblings seeking entry.

During the meeting, President Trump also appeared to support Senator Diane Feinstein's, D-Calif., call for a clean DACA bill, which would push off dealing with issues like border security until later.

The senators, three Democrats and three Republicans, "have reached an agreement in principle that addresses border security, the diversity visa lottery, chain migration/family reunification and the Dream Act", they wrote in a statement.

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.
