They didn't respond to the substance of this, whether he said those words or not.
The Republican leadership was flabbergasted and furious, as were his own advisers.
That's GOP Sens. Cory Gardner of Colorado, Jeff Flake of Arizona, Lindsey Graham of SC and Democrat Sen. Congress is debating whether or not to write new legislation that would grant legal status to these immigrants that were brought to the U.S.as children and remain illegally.
The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services said on its website that people who previously received a grant of protection under the Deferred Action of Childhood Arrivals (DACA) may apply for a renewal under the terms in place before it was rescinded in September.
In the past few days, the paper reported, "the tension on the theme of immigration has risen noticeably" with Trump and a bipartisan group from Congress meeting January 11 to discuss a measure that would keep the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program intact, but also include Trump's demands for a border wall. He added that the deal touched upon border security, the diversity visa lottery, family-based immigration categories, and protections for young unauthorized immigrants known as "Dreamers".
Democrats are nearly certain to balk the GOP bill, especially because it does not offer a path to legal permanent residence or citizenship for DACA recipients.
Durbin - who founded the movement to protect DREAMers, youths illegally in the USA through no fault of their own - is one of the lead Democratic negotiators. Heck, they won't be able to support Oprah's re-election in 2024. "We presented ours", he said, according to The Washington Post.

If the president sticks to the deal-making tone he struck Tuesday in an extraordinary public negotiating session with congressional leaders from both parties, more than half of which was open to television cameras and reporters, one of the most contentious challenges facing the nation might get resolved. The money would fund a partial construction of a fence along the border, technology and the training and retention of border patrol agents.
The six senators are also discussing family-based immigration, also referred to as chain migration.
A federal court ruling, also issued Tuesday, benefits people already enrolled in the program, but it doesn't change the expiration date.
Similarly, the diversity lottery was not eliminated, as some are seeking, but instead shifted its 50,000 annual visas to other immigrant groups, namely Salvadorans and others who must leave the country as Trump ends their under temporary protected status.
Tuesday was a very unusual day for the ongoing negotiations and uncertainty regarding the DACA program and the DREAMers, young people brought here illegally by their parents who have known this as their home. He asked why the US would want to accept immigrants from countries in Africa and places like Haiti and expressed a preference for people to come from places like Norway instead.
Several lawmakers expressed disappointment and disgust, with Republican Sen.
