    Trump attacks protections for immigrants from ‘$#@!hole’ countries in Oval Office meeting

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/polit...d94_story.html

    By Josh Dawsey, January 11

    President Trump grew frustrated with lawmakers Thursday in the Oval Office when they floated restoring protections for immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries as part of a bipartisan immigration deal, according to two people briefed on the meeting.

    “Why are we having all these people from $#@!hole countries come here?” Trump said, according to these people, referring to African countries and Haiti. He then suggested that the United States should instead bring more people from countries like Norway, whose prime minister he met Wednesday.

    The comments left lawmakers taken aback, according to people familiar with their reactions. Sens. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.) and Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill.) proposed cutting the visa lottery program by 50 percent and prioritizing countries already in the system, a White House official said.

    A White House spokesman declined to offer an immediate comment on Trump’s remarks.

    Outlining a potential bipartisan deal, the lawmakers discussed restoring protections for countries that have been removed from the temporary protected status program while adding $1.5 billion for a border wall and making changes to the visa lottery system.

    The administration announced this week that it was removing the protection for citizens of El Salvador.

    Trump had seemed amenable to a deal earlier in the day during phone calls, aides said, but shifted his position in the meeting and did not seem interested.

    Graham and Durbin thought they would be meeting with Trump alone and were surprised to find immigration hard-liners such as Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) and Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) at the meeting. The meeting was impromptu and came after phone calls Thursday morning, Capitol Hill aides said.

    After the meeting, Marc Short, Trump’s legislative aide, said the White House was nowhere near a bipartisan deal on immigration.

    “We still think we can get there,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said at the daily White House news briefing.

    Lol. I still don't have a problem with immigration. Legal or illegal. The question was "how does it improve the lives of American taxpayers." I've never been for government assistance. And still am not.

    Considering the Dem and MSM outrage there will be allot of great memes to come out of this for months to come. Memes that will easily sway the average voter. The Democrat and MSM position on affluent Norway immigration is equivalent to sewage laden poor Haiti is indefensible in the minds of most normal people.

    I guess it depends on what you consider normal, I think a lot of people will be saying, "yeah, why not more Norwegians than Haitians?" the only people that will have a problem with it are people that haven't had to interact with Haitians on a regular basis.

    In all fairness, every single country in Central America is a $#@! hole. It isn't a debatable statement.

    Wasn't the Clinton Foundation supposed to pull up Haiti into a first world country?

    A boorish comment, but very truthful. Show me the millions trying to sneak into the continent of Africa or Haiti? Nah. I thought so.

    To be fair to Haiti: A poster informed us on another thread that Haiti is a $#@!hole due to the French occupying it 200 years ago.

    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.
