39;Tears of Rage': Cory Booker Blows A Gasket Rips Into DHS Secretary

"If you cant remember the words of my commander in chief, I find that unacceptable".

During the testimony, Sen. You're under oath. Did president trump use this word or a substantially similar word to describe certain countries?

Nielsen: "I did not hear that word used".

Nielsen, referring to a forthcoming DHS study on immigration and terrorism, said she would ask lawmakers for help "to close the loopholes that prevent us from removing known suspected terrorists and other criminals from the United States".

Later Leahy pressed her again.

A few minutes later, Sen.

Booker also said Trump's words "give license to bigotry and hate in our country", and railed against recent violent incidents involving white supremacists. We need a merit based system of immigration, and we need it now!

"How did he characterize those countries?" "Yes, sir", Nielsen responded to Sen.

The Trump administration on Tuesday released a terrorism report aimed at bolstering its push for stricter limits on legal immigration to the United States, but conceded that the report is incomplete and needs more details to paint the full picture of the threats posed by foreign-born terrorists.

Trump has said that Durbin, who will be at Tuesday's hearing, misrepresented his comments.

"Ah, let's see", Nielsen said.

She later added, "I heard [Trump] repeating what he had learned in a meeting before; that they are industrious, they are hardworking, they don't have much crime, they don't have much debt".

She added that she heard "general profanity that was used in the room by just about everyone", with the exception of herself and Durbin. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) said in rebuttal. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., used "tough language" in response to Trump.

Asked about Trump's comments, Durbin said, "Politics ain't beanbag". That's different than a request made earlier this month by the Trump administration for $18 billion to build a new border wall over the next decade.

In his round of questioning, Sen. There appears to be little difference in meaning between the two words. I can understand you either saying they were said or they were not said.

'There was a lot of rough talk by a lot of people in the room.

"Why are we having all these people from sh*thole countries come here?" the president said in a closed meeting with lawmakers about immigration last week, according to senators who were present.

There were a record 43.2 million immigrants in the United States as of 2015, about 13 percent of the population; slightly more than a million immigrants arrive to the United States per year.

Senators who asked Nielsen about the allegation that the president used the profane phrase in an immigration meeting last week heard her say she didn't remember or didn't hear him.

"I don't remember specific word". It was very impassioned.

And further complicating the issue, unless a deal is reached on DACA, there's a real possibility the government could shut down on Friday. Dick Durbin, D-Ill. was.
