The report states that officials must "continue to enhance our screening and vetting" as well as "continually vet those who are here", including legal permanent residents and others who were naturalized, according to DHS secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, who appeared Tuesday before the Senate judiciary committee.

Feinstein referenced recent reports that Nielsen's department was continuing to consider a practice of separating children from parents when apprehended at the border - a policy first suggested previous year by then-Secretary John Kelly. Dick Durbing (D-IL) later confirmed publicly, that Trump called El Salvador, Haiti and unnamed African countries "shithole countries" and said he would prefer accepting immigrants from Norway. Nielsen told CBS she did not remember or hear the controversial words used.

"This report is a clear reminder of why we can not continue to rely on immigration policy based on pre-9/11 thinking that leaves us woefully vulnerable to foreign-born terrorists", Nielsen said in a statement.

Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) told the Post and Courier that Senator Lindsey Graham, who was also there, that he had told him Trump's reported comments were "basically accurate".

Mr Trump denied making the comment.

"That is not the question".

Trump has said that any deal on DACA also needs to increase border security and provide funding for his long-promised wall between the US and Mexico.

Nielsen responded: "The conversation was very impassioned". Asked if he will attend the president's first State of the Union address this month, the civil rights icon replied, "In good conscience, I can not and will not sit there and listen at him as he gives the State of the Union address".

Others in the room, including the president, have denied that, though they some have reportedly said he used another similar vulgar description.

Leahy asked about Norway.

Trump sparked a firestorm of criticism this week when he reportedly questioned why the US accepted immigrants from " in Africa as well as from Haiti and El Salvador during an immigration reform meeting with lawmakers at the White House. "And so what he was referencing is, from a merit-based perspective, we would like to have those with skills who can assimilate and contribute to the United States, moving away from country quotas and to an individual merit-based system".

"I think he has been clear, and I would certainly say undoubtedly the president will use ― continue to use ― strong language when it comes to this issue because he feels very passionately", Nielsen added.
