Dick Durbin doubles down…During a press conference on Friday, Sen. Dick Durbin (D., Ill.) recalled how he told President Donald Trump that the term “chain migration” was offensive. We kid you not!
Durbin confirmed an accusation that the president called African countries and Haiti “s—holes” during a Thursday meeting with a bipartisan group of lawmakers, calling the comments “offensive.”

As it turns out, Senator Durbin’s own website refers to “chain migration”. Did Senator Durbin pull this one out of a hat like he did with the “sh*thole”comment? We can’t believe a thing this crooked politician says.
