Trump Questions Why US Protects Immigrants from 'S-hole' Countries

Just when you thought he couldn't be any lewder or cruder than what we've already been forced to endure, our president has proven to us, yet again, that yes he can.

Sen. Roy Blunt, Mo.: "It's clearly an unacceptable thing to say". I never said, 'take them out.' This was made up by Democrats. This diversity is what makes our country great and something all citizens should be proud of. "The president should not denigrate other countries".

"If confirmed these are shocking and shameful comments from the President of the United States. We know he's not presidential but this a low", he said.

"I've never seen a statement like this by African countries directed at the United States", she wrote. "Bottom line, all people ought to be treated with respect". "The president is in excellent health and I look forward to briefing some of the details on Tuesday". This week we are from a sh*thole country.

When it's their turn to retire, they may discover that putting "America First" means there aren't enough people in the workforce to fund the safety net for them. "It's disheartening that someone who is the leader of the free world would use such demeaning language to talk about other folks, referring to folks of color".

Sen. Ron Johnson, Wis.: "Totally inappropriate and he should apologize".

Trump "has taken our issues off the back burner and thrust them into the spotlight", said Roy Beck, executive director at Numbers USA, which argues for reducing immigration to midcentury levels, before passage of the 1965 immigration overhaul ushered in a new era of migrants. You have a certain responsibility, a certain decorum that you need to conduct yourself in public with. "You have nations watching". His comments are disappointing, unbelievable, but not surprising. I would not talk about nations like this, because the people of those countries are made in the image of God and have worth and human dignity.

"It is not as if the United States doesn't have difficulties".

Sen. Mike Lee, Utah: "The comments attributed to the president are insulting and distracting".


"African countries, and sometimes our leaders, do not exactly deal with the problems of the worst-off, that's what makes people immigrate".

Recalling Trump's earlier comments vilifying Mexicans who cross the border as "rapists" and Trump's re-tweeting of anti-Muslim propaganda from a far-right British group, Colville says policy proposals targeting entire groups on grounds of nationality or religion goes against universal values. It is particularly offensive just days ahead of our recognition of Dr. Martin Luther King.

The TPS program, which was signed into law by President George H.W. Bush in 1990 provides temporary residency for people in the USA from countries that can not receive them either because those countries refuse to take their people back, or because war prevents them from going back to their home countries.

"I planned to hold my two daughters a little bit tighter tonight, especially my youngest who was the baby I kept in my arms to keep myself from curling up in a fetal position each time I saw a child being pulled from under a school or house on my television screen".

Former senior USA diplomat Nicholas Burns tweeted that the "damage overseas from Trump's ignorant and racist remarks can't be exaggerated".

The group called for a retraction and apology, and also expressed concern at what it described as the "growing trend from the United States administration" to "denigrate the continent and people of color".

"As an American, I am ashamed of the president. So I regret it". Graham and Durbin thought they would be meeting with Trump alone and were surprised to find immigration hard-liners such as Rep.

The alleged remarks were said to have also been made in reference to Haiti and El Salvador.

Beyond the words themselves, however the president put them, is his strongly implied support for an immigration policy that is based on racial stereotypes, and that penalizes individuals for where they are from, not who they are.
