Ellis SchumerAmerica isn't ready to let Sessions off his leash Schumer celebrates New York Giants firing head coach: "About time" GOP should reject the left's pessimism and the deficit trigger MORE (D-N.Y.) on Sunday said Sen.

On Sunday, Cotton claimed Durbin has a pattern of "misrepresenting what happens in White House meetings" and suggested people "shouldn't be surprised" by his comments. Durbin has said repeatedly. Sen. CNN reported on Saturday that Trump had taken a "victory lap" by calling friends and advisers to gauge the effect of the "shithole countries" remark, but did not quote him actually admitting that he had used the term.

Perdue then went on to accuse Sen.

"Following comments by the President, I said my piece directly to him yesterday". Cotton said Sunday on CBS' "Face the Nation" that he "didn't hear" the vulgar word.

"Credibility is something thats built by being consistently honest over time". It's not the first time Senator Durbin has done it. "Ask anyone whos dealt with both", Ben Marter tweeted Sunday.

President Donald Trump says a program to protect immigrants brought into the USA illegally as children is "probably dead". More than 100 each day are starting to lose permission to stay and work in the United States as Trump ends the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, that was created by the Obama administration. Trump said previous year that he's killing the program unless Congress sends him legislation by March to keep it.

Among them are the Dreamers - young immigrants brought to the United States legally as children - and more than 200,000 Salvadorans, almost 60,000 Haitians and others from Central America who have lived in the country legally, in some cases for decades, under temporary protected status.

The tentative deal unveiled Thursday would give legal status and a pathway to citizenship for dreamers while also providing $2.7 billion for border security - some of which could be used to construct the border wall Trump has proposed.
