Democrats on the panel used the hearing to vent their outrage over the president's comments. Sen.

Mr Trump has been condemned in the United States and across the globe for reportedly labelling Haiti, El Salvador and African countries as s***holes and suggesting the USA should accept more people from countries such as Norway.

The question, first asked by Democratic Sen.

'There was a lot of rough talk by a lot of people in the room.

"I think what he's trying to do is move away from a quota based system, whether that's a quota of underrepresented countries or a quota of Norway, for example", Ms Nielsen said.

Cotton told CBS's "Face the Nation" that he " the president say the word.

Nielsen: He used tough language.

'I did not hear that word used, no sir, ' she said.

Booker told Nielsen that when he heard about what happened from Durbin, he found it "profoundly disturbing".

"I am the least racist person you have ever interviewed", he said.

A spokesman for Seoul's unification ministry played down the editorial, attributing it to "internal reasons and circumstances". North Korea is planning to send a large delegation to the Olympics in addition to the athletes and orchestra.

"I sit here right now because when good white people in this country heard bigotry, or hatred, they stood up", Booker said.

She later added, "I heard [Trump] repeating what he had learned in a meeting before; that they are industrious, they are hardworking, they don't have much crime, they don't have much debt". Nielsen said, before Leahy cut her off.

Booker reminded Nielsen that she was under oath when she repeatedly said she did not recall the "shithole" comment.

That policy would be contingent on Congress' failure to approve legislation protecting beneficiaries of the Obama-era program that has helped undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S.as children obtain work and schooling. So, it shouldn't matter where you come, it should matter what you can contribute to the United States. Look on the bright side: It's an excuse for CNN to say "sh*thole" on the air 195 more times. The government has until Friday to finalize a spending bill to avoid a government shutdown.

Kirstjen Nielsen testifies November 8, 2017, before the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee on her nomination to be secretary of the Department of Homeland Security.

Durbin defended Graham by saying "his strong words repeated exactly the words used by the president, which you can not remember". "Others in the room were also using tough language".

"The conversation was very impassioned", said Ms. Nielsen, who was in the room.

U.S. Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) exploded in anger over Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen's refusal to remember the vulgar language used in the Oval Office by President Donald Trump last week when discussing immigrants from Haiti and African nations.

"Let's see, strong language, there was, uh, apologies - I don't remember specific word", Nielsen said. Graham and Durbin also told allies that they were stunned that the other lawmakers were present - and that Trump's tone seemed so different than it had been days or even hours before, according to people close to them.
