Current immigration system jeopardises USA security: White House

VIDEO: Homeland Security Secretary Questioned On False Missile Alert

Booker, appearing to be outraged shouted, "I hurt!"

Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen faced intense questioning about her memory of the Oval Office immigration reform meeting last week in which President Donald Trump referred to several nations as "s--hole countries", including by one of the senators also present for the meeting.

Nielsen previously said she could not recall whether Trump used the slur. Cory Booker, D-N.J., who called it "unacceptable" that she could not "remember the words of your commander-in-chief".

"When ignorance and bigotry is allied with power, it is a unsafe force in our country", Booker said. Your silence and your amnesia is complicit in it, Booker said to Nielsen.

She agreed with anchor John Dickerson that this is a clear and present danger and said the USA needs to improve its vetting process, to include following up on certain immigrants even after they have entered the country.

Did I just lie or mislead Congress?

Booker said the president disparaged immigrants in New Jersey who serve as entrepreneurs and service members.

Trump was responding to questions as he met with Kazakhstan's president Nursultan Nazarbayev at the White House on Tuesday.

The senior administration official said there had not been enough time to compile such statistics, but suggested that even one case in which an immigrant went on to commit a terrorism-related offense should be grounds for discontinuing the program.

The reports of the meeting, which came amid continued debate over the country's immigration policies, renewed accusations by critics of the president on issues of race.

Airbus reports that 2017 was another record year for airliner deliveries
Airbus delivered 15 380s last year, with 12 scheduled for this year and eight in 2019, said chief executive Fabrice Bregier. Brégier said a new Airbus delivery record coupled with the company's fifth best order intake wraps up a remarkable year.

"Norway is a predominantly white country, isn't it?" followed Leahy.

Republican Senator Lindsay Graham did release a statement saying he confronted Mr Trump about his disparaging remarks, although he did not explicitly confirm the president used "s***hole". But she says she doesn't "dispute the president was using tough language".

Nielsen, who was citing a new report created by the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Justice, is scheduled to testify on Tuesday in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee on the study.

When Leahy asked again, Nielsen said, "The conversation was very impassioned".

Nielsen, who was in the room during the meeting, said she just can't seem to remember it happening.

India likely to revive missile deal with Israel
But Israel and India have been at pains to emphasise that these events will not alter the bilateral relationship. In 1999, during the Kargil war, Israel again helped India with defence supplies.

The report comes on the heels of recent terror-related offenses allegedly committed by those born overseas who had legally immigrated to the US, according to The Daily Caller. Then he drove himself and with his girlfriend to a health center where she says he collapsed in the waiting room. "What I understood [President Trump] to say was: let's move away from the countries and let's look at the individual, and make sure those we bring here can contribute to our society", Nielsen also said.
