In a statement released on Friday, the mission expressed its disappointment in the president of the United States and demanded a 'retraction of the comment' and an 'apology to Africans'.

Durbin explained what happened next on Friday morning.

"I called him yesterday morning about 10 o'clock". When I mentioned that fact to him, he said, 'Haitians?

We're glad our senators, Democrat Michael Bennet and Republican Cory Gardner are working with their peers to craft such a compromise.

"We arrived at noon to make our presentation to the president".

Thursday's White House huddle was held to discuss a bipartisan deal that would limit immigrants from bringing family members into the country, restrict the green card visa lottery and boost border security. "That's the important thing", Ana Quintero, from Venezeula, said.
