Norwegians say: 'No thanks, Mr President!' to immigration welcome


Hunder said he expects Trump will hear from Haitian President Jovenel Moise and African leaders about the vulgar remark. "We got to look at each other as human beings, not about color", Diallo said.

When asked how his uncle would have responded to Trump's comments on Thursday, Farris Jr. said that he would have urged Trump "not to refer to African countries like that".

Sources told Reuters on Thursday that Trump had questioned why the United States would want immigrants from "shithole countries" like Haiti and some African countries during a briefing on draft immigration legislation. This remains a nation of immigrants whose strength is its diversity.

United Nations official Rupert Colville added "These are shocking and shameful comments from the President of the United States". 'The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used, ' he said. "And this influencer said what needs to happen, and it's kind of-she made me laugh with it, but it's real".

"Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?"

Fort Myers Councilman Johnny Streets said he is hearing from Haitians in his ward.

Although the president denied making any derogatory comments, most in the Haitian community are not buying it. The exact word used by the president.

And Democrat Senator Dick Durbin, who was in the meeting at the time, insisted Trump did say the words.

Those signing the letter included Apple CEO Tim Cook , Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and General Motors CEO Mary Barra. DACA grants Dreamers two years of deferred action from deportation and also makes them eligible for a work permit.

Mr Trump continued: "I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians".

In a statement on Friday, Graham reiterated standard pro-immigration, pro-amnesty talking points, claiming he almost reprimanded Trump after he allegedly made the comment.

Americans deserve to know beyond any doubt exactly how our nation's leader described countries that are home to almost 1.3 billion people.

Special status given to about 59,000 Haitian immigrants, that has protected them from deportation following the 2010 quake, will end next year following a Trump administration ruling last month.

The Associated Press reported that the White House did not deny Trump's remark, but issued a statement saying Trump supports immigration policies that welcome "those who can contribute to our society".

Also angered by the comments was IL state Sen. "I have not read one of them that is inaccurate", Durbin said during a Friday news conference.

"I think our politicians in Washington have lost focus on what they're really there for: the constitutional rights that every one of us as American citizens have that are being completely ignored", Mendoza said.

No matter how much some conservative supporters of Trump believe the United States should adopt an isolationist stance, walling off borders and refusing to deal with the rest of the world, it's not possible.
