Homeland Security secretary grilled over Trump 's---hole' comments

  • Durbin grills DHS Secretary about Trump vulgarity regarding African nations

"I don't recall him saying that exact phrase", Ms Nielsen said.

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen told senators Tuesday she "did not hear" President Donald Trump say the specific word "sh-hole" during a meeting with lawmakers last week that she attended.

Ms Nielsen says what Mr Trump is looking at is the same as the merit-based system used in Australia and Canada. When asked whether she recalled the President saying he wanted more immigrants from Europe and specifically Norway, Nielsen said he Trump admired they were hard working, had low crime and that he had just met with the prime minister. After stuttering, she replied, "I actually do not know that sir, but I imagine that is the case". "I sit here right now because when good white people in this country heard bigotry or hatred, they stood up".

Seventy-five percent of those convicted of worldwide terrorism-related offenses are foreign born, the Trump administration said Tuesday seeking to buttress President's Donald Trump's sought immigration overhauls. "You "don't remember.' You 'can't remember" the words of your commander-in-chief".

Durbin, unsatisfied with Nielsen's answer, asked her the same question again. David Perdue of Georgia and Tom Cotton of Arkansas - have pushed back against media reports and said Trump did not use the slur. "Indeed, I've never heard any president, Republican or Democrat, express anything even comparable". "Now understanding that they literally just have minutes, minutes to say goodbye to their loved ones, to find their loved ones, to try to find some kind for shelter somewhere". State lawmakers announced they would hold a hearing next Friday. Though the Iran-Contra indictments largely centered on perjury and withholding evidence, this was an analytically significant expansion - to cover interbranch unsworn lying.

"Excuse me", Booker said.

"The president utilized intense dialect by and large, as did other congressmen in the room", she said.

Left to its own devices, the State Department came up with its own talking points to be used by USA missions in Africa working to stem the damage, said a US official, who wasn't authorized to disclose internal deliberations and demanded anonymity. "I'm not here to get in front of the President or any final decisions on that particular issue, but, yes, I'm happy to discuss it". Sometimes it is important to pull back from the moment. Understand that any professional career she would hope to have would likely be ruined if it is determined she lied under oath. "I, too, am extremely upset about this and am doing everything I can do to immediately improve our emergency management systems, procedures and staffing". She said the alerts are vital and doesn't want anyone to "draw the wrong conclusion". By now, she is aware that both Sens. Dick Durbin misrepresented what he had said about African nations and Haiti and, in the process, undermined the trust needed to make a deal.

While the report does not contain information regarding the number of terrorism and terrorism-related offenses committed by individuals who are the children of foreign-born individuals, the White House said terrorist attacks carried out by children of foreign-born individuals include the attack in Orlando by Omar Mateen, which killed 49 people and the attack in San Bernadino, California by Syed Rizwan Farook, which killed 14 people and injured 22 others. Public service is honorable, but not when you are enabling elected officials to lie and to pursue racist ends. You inevitably wind up enabling racism, dishonesty and corruption. And now, you need to either quit or face the legal and personal consequences.
