They previously had been quoted as saying they “didn’t recall.” Now, they make it much clearer – they didn’t hear it and they were as close as Durbin. Durbin also lied about chain migration, calling it racist because Trump used the term in the meeting, after he, Durbin had himself used it in the past.
