"Haiti has long history with the United States, dating back to the American Revolutionary War, (during which) 500 heroic Haitians volunteered to fight alongside the American troops for America's independence".

Durbin explained they were in the USA because they had been "the victims of crises and disasters and political upheaval".

Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh said Trump is arguably the most influential person in the country and possibly the world.

"I am working on my Ph.D., and my friends who've come here are highly educated", said Mulbah, whose father held a Ph.d. when the family arrived in the U.S.

This makes chain migration the largest driver of immigration to the US - making up more than 70 percent - with every two new immigrants bringing seven foreign relatives with them.

"It is kind of an extraordinary moment when we have to caution viewers about language that the president apparently said in the Oval Office", Chris Wallace said on Fox News.

Haiti and Haitians, targets of a separate anti-immigration drive by the Trump administration, were also subject of derogatory remarks by the President, according to the first report on the issue by the Washington Post. "There is no regular criteria that we have to meet so at random, people get picked".

On Friday, however, U.S. Sen.

Republican Sens. David Perdue of Georgia and Tom Cotton of Arkansas, who attended the meeting, said in a statement that they "do not recall the president saying these comments specifically".

"What he did call out was the imbalance in our current immigration system, which does not protect American workers and our national interest".

Trump denied the vulgar remarks the next morning via tweet and said, "I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians". The exact word used by the president. The details of the proposal have not been publicised, but the President said: "The so-called bipartisan DACA deal. was a big step backwards".

Jacquet is among the Southwest Florida Haitian immigrants shocked at what the president said. I certainly don't use that language. "After unilaterally moving to end DACA and upend the lives of 800,000 young immigrants, including more than 41,000 in Illinois, Trump is resorting to offensive tactics to score a political win with his base".

The pan-African grouping represents 55 member states throughout the continent. The reason is simple: "Donald Trump is a racist", he said in a tweet. "Anything that is not Anglo-Saxon, he has a bias against". It'll become great when the country welcomes people seeking economic stability and a chance at the American dream, and families fleeing violence seeking a new, safe home simply because it's the right thing to do. It shows in the way the Justice Department treats black men. Not more - not just once, but repeatedly.

Ndiang'ui is from Kenya and now teaches diversity and is concerned about the president's comments.

Issac Settro, of Lawrenceville came to the U.S.in 1998, also from Liberia.

For comparison, the U.S.is 10th in the Human Development Index, has an average annual salary of $52,543 and ranks 45 in the Global Gender Gap Report, according to information compiled by the Sentinel. He said he believes Trump's comments demonstrate a lack of education and deep racial animus. In reforming immigration we can not lose these American Ideals'. "We are going to send him packing".
