Graham says, "I think somebody on his staff gave him really bad advice between 10 o'clock to 12 o'clock on Thursday".

Asked about Kelly, the South Carolina Republican said the chief of staff is "a fine man, but he's part of the staff".

The Trump administration today said the current immigration system jeopardises the US' national security, reiterating its call to end the chain migration and visa lottery system. When ignorance and bigotry is allied with power it is a risky force in our country.

"Your silence and your amnesia is complicit", he added.

Sen Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, says it's clear that human error initiated the false alert. "Domestic terrorism just means 'not affiliated with Muslim groups.' If you're a Neo-Nazi terrorist in the United States, even if you're Canadian or French, you're a domestic terrorist".

She also says the Department of Homeland Security is examining how the US government can quickly verify the accuracy of alerts with agencies such as the Department of Defense. This could be other White House officials, members of Congress or persons outside of government.

An immigrant from Uzbekistan who was admitted to the U.S.as part of the diversity visa program killed eight people a year ago in a terrorist attack in NY, sparking condemnation from Trump.

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

"I was struck more by the fact that the conversation - although passionate and appropriately so - had gotten to a place where many people in the room were using inappropriate language in the oval office in front of the President". Once reports surfaced about the president's language, Mr. Trump initially tweeted a vague denial that "tough language" had been used, "but not that language".

Sen. Cory Booker slammed the homeland security secretary in a speech Tuesday morning for claiming ignorance to the President's slander of African countries. Nielsen said she wanted to "move forward" from discussing the language Trump used in a meeting that happened a week ago.

Mr Trump had been condemned in the USA and across the globe for reportedly labelling Haiti, El Salvador and African countries as s***holes and suggesting the United States should accept more people from countries such as Norway. Nielson that she is under oath before he asked the question.

"I did not hear that word used", Nielsen told members of the committee. And a Republican senator who previously suffered from it has now recovered - and says that the president never said it. Graham also said, in words directed to Trump, "close this deal". Abdurasaul Hasanovich Juraboev and Ali Shukri Amin came to the US on the visa lottery while Mufid Elfgeeh, Mahmoud Amin Mohamed Elhassan and Uzair Paracha entered the USA using familial relations, it said.

Nielsen's comments come as Trump and lawmakers battle over an immigration deal that has blown up amid Trump's controversial remarks at a recent White House meeting. He was said to have used "shithole" to describe some nations in Africa.

Trump has denied the reports.

"This was a very unfortunate mistake", she said.

A statistic that backs up President Donald Trump's efforts to strengthen immigration laws.

Durbin on Tuesday said he and Sen.

"I've been in the Oval Office many times", Booker said.
