The immigration office said that deferments under DACA do not confer legal residency but gives prosecutors discretion on enforcing immigration laws. "Sadly, Democrats want to stop paying our troops and government workers in order to give a sweetheart deal, not a fair deal, for DACA".
Durbin said "shitholes" was "the exact word used by the president not just once but repeatedly". We need to pass a clean DREAM Act.

Trump allegedly referred to Haiti and African nations as "s--hole" countries.
