Sen. Dick Durbin of IL, the only Democrat in the room, said Trump had indeed said what he was reported to have said. "Our AU Presidents must respond strongly to this insult", he tweeted. DACA protects from deportation the almost 800,000 immigrants brought to the country illegally as children. Durbin thought it would just be the senators and Trump in the room. The remarks, Durbin said, were "vile, hate-filled and clearly racial in their content".
