The US President reportedly expressed his displeasure with the influx of immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and some African countries during a meeting with high-ranking senators at the White House on Thursday, adding that he wished more people from Scandinavia would leave their homeland to pursue the fabled American Dream.
