The senator from Arizona said Trump's remarks came in reaction to an element of the deal that would reallocate the visas given out in a lottery to immigrants who are now in a protected status, like Haitians and the dreamers.

The Illinois representative said this past week that he heard the president make the statements, although other representatives in the same meeting denied hearing it.

Trump announced previous year that he will end the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, unless lawmakers come up with a solution by March.

It protects young immigrants - known as "Dreamers" - brought into the United States illegally by their parents from deportation.
