The on-again, off-again effort to decide the future of nearly 800,000 undocumented youths in the United States swung wildly from Thursday to Friday, with one of the top Republicans in Congress calling President Donald Trump's reported use of an expletive to disparage some immigrants' home countries "unfortunate" and "unhelpful".
Johnson rejected Trump's claim in a 2015 CNN interview in which the President said he was "the least racist person", declaring that "he's a racist both in his actions and his words". "We, along with the president, are committed to solving an issue many in Congress have failed to deliver on for decades", the statement said.
Trump insisted he did not use the word "shithole" to describe Haiti and African countries. "They'll listen, that's their primary job to listen, and they'll reiterate the respect we have for that nation".
African nations and El Salvador -also said to have been targeted in Trump's comments on immigration - have had plenty to say.
The president added that the US government should accept more people from countries like Norway.
Senator Dick Durbin was the only democrat in the room. "The so-called bipartisan DACA deal presented yesterday to myself and a group of Republican Senators and Congressmen was a big step backwards", Trump said in a series of tweets on Friday.
"I'm bothered by what he said, but I don't think the entire America would agree with him", Charitable said.

Kinzinger joined a number of lawmakers in criticizing the president's comments in a statement released Friday. "We are a nation of immigrants, and a nation built on the backs of hard-working men and women from ALL over the world".
Trump's former political rival was reacting to remarks reportedly made by the President during a briefing session in the Oval Office when he is alleged to have launched into a rant against immigrants.
"I believe he lost his temper and said it", Jacquet said.
Presidential aide Marc Short said the White House was nowhere near a bipartisan deal on immigration.
Walker says he has heard many different reports on what was actually said during the bi-partisan immigration meeting.
Ryan said his ancestors were Irish and 'were really looked down upon.' He called immigration 'a handsome story of America ' and said Africans in his hometown of Janesville, Wisconsin, are 'incredible citizens'. "He said these hate-filled things and he said them repeatedly".
Some believe the president's most recent comments may have made a deal almost impossible. The president, according to a White House official, also suggested he would be open to more immigrants from Asian countries because he felt they help the United States economically.
