Local African immigrants respond to president's comment

Pugh called upon all elected leaders, regardless of party, to condemn the president's comments.

"These are shocking and shameful comments from the President of the United States".

NAKASEC joined other groups in calling for the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act to be attached to the federal budget vote, in lieu of a massive reform bill that would include cuts to other aspects of the US immigration system.

The result was a surreal scene on Friday.

Two high-ranking Democrats - Rep. Cedric Richmond of Louisiana, chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus, and Rep. Jerrold Nadler of NY, a senior member of the Judiciary Committee - said they would call on Republican leaders to bring up a resolution reprimanding the president for "racist statements". Mr. Trump ignored the queries.

Democratic Senator Dick Durbin of IL, who was present at the meeting, said the reports were accurate and that "shithole was the exact word used once not twice but repeatedly".

Trump then "said things which were hate-filled, vile and racist", Durbin said, adding that "shithole" was "the exact word used by the president, not just once but repeatedly".

He tweeted a convoluted denial Friday in an attempt to quell outrage both at home and overseas.

Trump tweeted a convoluted denial early Friday about the comments allegedly made on Thursday at a White House meeting with lawmakers on immigration reform.

"The president's remarks are beyond unacceptable, beneath the office, and unrepresentative of the American people", Hogan said in an email.

"The solution to our current divisiveness does not live in the White House", Penn wrote. That means there is a tough road ahead, since finding a solution that Mr. Trump and most Republicans will ratify is crucial to any resolution.

At least 10,000 Haitian immigrants came to Southwest Florida after a 2010 natural disaster devastated their nation.

A civil rights icon who also served as Ambassador to the United Nations spoke to News 4 about disparaging comments President Donald Trump reportedly made about Haiti and African countries.

But the main impetus for the deal is the fate of the Dreamers.

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. There are now about 700,000 DACA recipients who benefit from temporary work permits and relief from deportation.

McWhorter noted that the American public has listened to Trump for several years and it's more than clear that Trump has a "racist bias". Bob Goodlatte's (R-VA) immigration bill rolled out this week, which exchanges DACA amnesty for mandatory E-Verify, reductions in legal immigration, and full authorization of a border wall along the U.S. -Mexico border.
