13 Janvier 2018

The African Union, an organization comprised of all 55 African nations, blasted President Donald Trump's comments that the continent contained "shithole countries."

"Any alleged comments by the President in a (n) immigration meeting are best responded to by the the White House".

"This behaviour is unacceptable from the leader of our nation", she said in a statement.

Rebecca Black, an immigration lawyer in Jacksonville, said the city has immigrants from all over the world, and they are closely watching the DACA issue.

Haitian and African immigrants across metro Atlanta reacted with fury and disgust Friday to President Donald Trump's reported assertion that they come from "shithole countries". Absent a budget, the federal government will have to shut down.

"Haitians slap your hand hard when they shake it".

Trump reportedly told the senators at Thursday's meeting that more people from countries such as Norway should be allowed into the U.S. Because Norway is an overwhelmingly white nation, the implication was that Trump wanted more whites admitted into the United States.

We certainly agree, and we're sure that the millions of people President Trump insulted with his comments do, too. We must help the children involved and ensure that the security of our fellow citizens is achieved.

Trump is reacting on Twitter Friday, after reports that he questioned why the US would accept more immigrants from Haiti and "shithole countries" in Africa rather than places like Norway. Trump allegedly questioned why the USA doesn't admit more immigrants from countries like Norway, whose prime minister visited the White House this week.

"Kenya is one of the fastest growing countries in Africa", he said.

"Following comments by the president, I said my piece directly to him yesterday".

"The rhetoric just makes it more hard, and that's unfortunate", said Rep. Mike Simpson, R-Idaho, a senior House lawmaker.

"At first you think, is it true?" DACA protects from deportation the almost 800,000 immigrants brought to the country illegally as children.

Trump had been quoted as saying during a meeting at the White House earlier in the week, "Why do we want all these people from Africa here?"

"It was so disturbing this morning to hear President Trump's comments reported all over the news calling my poor native land and African countries "s...hole" nations", Jean said in a statement to The Canadian Press.

Richard Durbin of IL - after Trump reportedly made the comment at an Oval Office meeting, where he was also is claimed to have said disparaging things about Haitian immigrants.

Donald Trump ragging on immigrants from "sh*hole countries" in a January 11 Oval Office meeting has gotten him into some deep. well, sh*t.

Other GOP lawmakers struck the now-familiar balance of distancing themselves from the president's statements, but not criticizing Trump himself. Obviously, even dysfunctional places have their talented people who could pass muster under a merit-based system, and we should always have a refugee program for people facing persecution in their home countries.

It noted that Trump's comments had immediately sparked "controversy and indignation".

Retired Ethiopian long-distance runner Haile Gebrselasse, who won his first 10,000 Olympic gold medal in the USA city of Atlanta in 1996, told Reuters Trump's comments did not reflect the views of all Americans. But he attracts a disproportionate share of racists to support him.

US House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan said: "The first thing that came to mind was very unfortunate and unhelpful". "Why don't we get more people from Norway?".

So who's being protected by all this false timorousness - besides the person who said it?
