Trump migration comments point to racial approach

Trump migration comments point to racial approach

As an immigration status allowed by law for certain countries experiencing dire conditions, such as a natural disaster, epidemic or war, tps protects individuals from deportation and authorizes them to work in the U.S.

Trump reportedly made the remarks at a White House meeting on immigration on Thursday.

Trump reportedly demanded to know why the U.S. should accept immigrants from "s***hole countries", after lawmakers raised the issue of protections for immigrants from African nations, Haiti and El Salvador.

And he wrote: "I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians".

The African Union responded to President Donald Trump's description of African nations as "shithole countries." .

While a true mental health evaluation can only happen in person, these experts have noted there is some "increasing concern" that the President may be struggling with some mental health challenges and they recommend the President's doctor screen Trump for dementia.

Just a few might include Muhammad Ali, Clarence Thomas, Martin Luther King Jr., Willie Mays, Maya Angelou, Jackie Robinson, Booker T. Washington, George Washington Carver and a man you may not have heard of named William H. Carney.

Acclaimed Haitian-American novelist Edwidge Danticat issued a powerful statement through her Facebook page saying that Haitians "today we mourn, tomorrow we fight".

Last year, Trump scrapped the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program that protected the immigrants, and set a deadline of March 5 for Congress to legislate a fix.

In a series of tweets on Friday, Trump also suggested that momentum toward a deal on maintaining such protection had stalled.

Trump issues ultimatum to fix Iran nuclear deal
The other parties to the agreement would have been unlikely to join the United States in reimposing sanctions. That decision came despite the United Nations having certified Iran's compliance with the deal eight times.

The White House and Mr Trump have repeatedly brushed aside those implications.

The tentative deal also addresses border security, including a border wall, the diversity visa lottery and chain migration, in which USA green-card holders can sponsor other family members for permanent residence in the country.

Before Trump, the most prominent one was Alabama Sen. He added the country "would be forced to take large numbers of people from high crime countries which are doing badly".

"We had a meeting", Graham said from Capitol Hill, "and I will tell you that I'm hopeful".

The alleged remarks were said to have also been made in reference to Haiti and El Salvador. "They're s***hole countries. We should have more people from Norway". "Ours is not a shithole country".

Trump insisted Friday that he "never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country".

Colville warns that comments by a major political figure, such as the president of the United States, can have damaging and unsafe consequences. US police kill more people in a few days than many other developed countries kill in a few years, and they disproportionately target minorities.

The federal courts have already determined that President Trump's tweets, his comments, are relevant as to what the real motivation or intent or underpinning of a law is.

He has denounced NFL players for kneeling during the national anthem in protest at police brutality against African Americans, and made questionable comments about a white supremacist rally in Virginia that turned violent. So Graham and Durbin have been working tirelessly on a compromise bill that can win Republican and Democratic votes, and whether it can advance on Capitol Hill depends heavily on whether it receives Trump's blessing.

While he is fundamentally Americas problem, he becomes our problem, too, unless we join the rest of the world in setting and reinforcing the boundaries of respect and decency by which countries deal with each other.
