    Durbin: Term ‘Chain Migration’ Painful to African-Americans Because They Migrated to

    Durbin: Term ‘Chain Migration’ Painful to African-Americans Because They Migrated to U.S. in Chains

    1044


    by JEFF POOR12 Jan 2018


    Friday, Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL) backed up a Washington Post reportclaiming President Donald Trump referred to certain nations as “shithole countries” in a bipartisan meeting Trump held with members of Congress on immigration policy.
    Durbin’s remarks were made to reporters and captured by MSNBC’s camera.


    Durbin also criticized Trump for his use of the term “chain migration” because according to the Senate Minority Whip, it was offensive to African-Americans that “migrated” to the United States chains.


    Partial transcript as follows:

    In the course of his comments of said things which were hate-filled, vile and racist — he used those words. I understand how powerful they are. But I cannot believe that in the history of the White House, in that Oval Office, any president has ever spoken words that I personally heard our president speak yesterday.


    You’ve seen the comments in the press. I’ve not read one of them that’s inaccurate. To no surprise, the president started tweeting this morning, denying that he used those words. It is not true. He said these hate-filled things. And he said them repeatedly. When the question was raised about Haitians, for example, we have a group that have temporary protected status in the United States because they were the victims of crises and disasters and political upheaval. The largest group’s El Salvadorians. The second is Honduran and the third is Haitian.


    When I mentioned that fact to him, he said, “Haitians, do we need more Haitians?” Then he went on and started to describe the immigration from Africa that was being protected in this bipartisan measure. That’s when he used these vile and vulgar comments, calling the nations they come from “shitholes,” The exact word used by the president — not just once but repeatedly.


    That was the nature of this conversation. When it came to the issue of, quote, “chain migration,” I said to the president, do you realize how painful that term is to so many people? African-Americans believe they migrated to America in chains and when you talk about chain migration, it hurts them personally.


    He said, “Oh, that’s a good line.” And then when I talked to him about the impact this has on family unification in a nation that values families with the flag as the most important symbols of our future, they scoffed at this notion. It was a heartbreaking moment. But I will tell you this, I’m not going to quit. I have a singular mission. And the mission is this: To give these DREAMers and as many members of their families as possible a chance to be part of America’s future in a legal status.


    I am convinced that there’s a majority in both the House and the Senate of Democrats and Republicans who support that concept. I know there’s an overwhelming majority of Americans who support that concept.


    So here’s what we’re going to do: We’re going to prepare our bipartisan agreement for introduction into the Senate next week. If the Republican leadership has a better alternative, bring it forward. If they don’t, for goodness sakes, give us a vote. I’ll be on the phone today with my Republican colleagues and my Democratic colleagues begging them to support this measure.


    Time is running out. We have to get this done. I thought we might get a bipartisan agreement approved by the White House, died yesterday. We have to do this and show leadership in Congress to solve this important challenge.

    He is unbelievable. They will do and say anything to get voters even if it transforms areas of the the United States into third world whatevers. They will shame, lie, confuse people.

    And look at the areas that democrats run. Chicago, California, elsewhere.

    Then we should definitely get rid of chain migration, all of it. That's what the President and Republicans want to do and are trying to do.

    Dick, I hate to tell you this, but the very slim opportunity you were given for your amnesty blackmail just went up in smoke, right along with any chance you'll ever have to meet with the President in the White House.

    Get ready for a government shutdown. Your blackmail is over. The FBI always says to never pay a ransom. I think our government should and will follow it's own advice. After all, you can't trust DemoKrooks who tried to rig an election, who have tried to frame innocent citizens exercising their political free speech, who have flooded our country with tens of millions of illegal aliens, who have run up our national debt by $10 trillion up to $20 trillion, who have lied about tax cuts, lied about amnesty, lied about our President, lied about Trump Supporters, lied about free trade, lied about immigration, lied about any and everything to do with our country.

    Your dirt bag pond scum.

    -------------------------

    KILL THE BILL!

    NO MASS AMNESTY AND NO PATH TO STAY

    THAT IS THEIR OBJECTIVE ALL ALONG!


    THEY ARE LIARS...WE ALREADY GAVE AMNESTY AND GOT NO WALL! ALL WE GOT ARE MILLIONS MORE OF ILLEGAL ALIENS!

    THEY HAVE RELEASED THESE ILLEGAL ALIENS IN OUR COMMUNITIES FOR DECADES AND THE BUCK STOPS HERE!

    THEY CAN GO HOME AND WORK TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE SUCCESS OF THEIR COUNTRIES

    START A CAMPAIGN TO CALL OUT THEIR CORRUPT PRESIDENT AND GIVE THEM A COMPREHENSIVE PLAN FOR REFORM AND SEND THEM ALL BACK!

    Legal status for illegal aliens isn't possible under the US Constitution.

    The worthless politicians can blame themselves for our attitudes toward illegal aliens. They have allowed them to invade our country crowding our schools, emergency rooms and everything else they can mooch off the American taxpayers. When we complain, we are called racist. You dirty rats have totally sold yourselves out to the highest bidder. We have complained to you about how we feel and how insulting it is to us to see how you cater to the illegals by making everything as convenient and helpful to them as you possibly can. I am sick and tired of everywhere I call I get a message in Spanish, and that includes our government offices. Since when did we become a co-country to Mexico and all of South America? We all know it is not because of your concern for the illegals it is because of your indebtedness to your donors and special interests.

    Oh Pleeaaazzze. This is one of the stupidest things I ever heard. I think Durbin is the one who is delusional.

    That's what I'm counting on with this whole "sh**hole" remark. I'm hoping Trump never trusts him again and scraps these idiotic amnesty talks in light of this.

    African-Americans did not "migrate" from Africa...their own African people sold them as SLAVES!

    Africa bought Irish slaves way before we had slaves. Many Irish were NEVER found. They were beaten and raped and murdered!

    It was not right...no one disputes that.

    Big mistake was not loading them up on a ship and sending them back to their home country. Should have done it on a voluntary basis.

    There are many atrocities that have been committed around the World.

    NOW IS THE TIME TO STOP THE CORRUPTION...STOP THE HUMAN TRAFFICKING

    STOP THE INVASION OF OUR COUNTRIES AND SOLVE THESE PROBLEMS!
