Sen. Lindsey Graham tells president how to fix immigration system

Trump shakes hands with attendees after signing a proclamation to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Friday. He has directly addressed a racism row for the first time

Durbin said the soon-to-be-introduced immigration plan includes some "painful concessions" on some issues to Mr. Trump's stance.

"I feel confident that we will not shut the government down and that there will be a DACA fix before March", he told NBC News. He said he would much rather prefer immigrants from Norway.

U.S. Embassy spokesperson Cindy Harvey told the Johannesburg-based news site Daily Maverick that Lapenn would visit the Department of International Relations and Cooperation on Monday.

"I'm not going to get into what I said, but I will tell you, it was a tough meeting", Trump said.

"I stand by my words", Durbin, a Democrat from IL, told the co-hosts. Dick Durbin of misrepresenting the discussion on immigration during a recent meeting at the White House.




McCaul and some other Republicans contend that Democrats will watch their strategy backfire politically if they are perceived to have held government funding hostage for DACA recipients. The president during the Oval Office meeting singled out Haiti, telling lawmakers that Haitian immigrants must be left out of any deal, according to people briefed on the meeting. "We want to bring in individuals, wherever they may be from, who love this country, who love its people, who have skills, who have talent, who have - who speak English, who are committed to supporting our values and our very way of life", said a senior administration official said on condition of anonymity. He also reported the 6-foot-3 president weighed in at 239 pounds - three pounds heavier than he was in September 2016, the last time Trump revealed his weight to the public.

Monday, Durbin also remained unmoved by White House assertions reported by many media outlets that what Trump actually said was "shithouse". "They said those words were used before those words went public", Flake said.

The Montreal Cognitive Assessment, which identifies light impairment or the onset of Alzheimer's disease, was designed by neurologist Ziad Nasreddine in the 1990s.

In a hearing Tuesday, Graham said Trump expressed openness to an immigration deal, only to reject it hours later. Jackson said he would increase that dose in an effort to get Trump's so-called "bad" cholesterol, or LDL level, below 120; it now is 143.

"The Durbin-Graham-Flake proposal would do nothing to solve the underlying problem in our current immigration system", they said in a statement.
