During a meeting on immigration, Donald Trump referred to Haiti, El Salvador, and some countries in Africa as "shithole" countries. He wondered — out loud! — why the Untied States should take immigrants from these countries when the preference would be to attract people from countries like Norway.
Immigrants and children of immigrants have take the term #ShitHole and turned it into a battle cry on Twitter to protest Trump's stereotyping.

@realDonaldTrump (1/2) Laos was probably a shithole country in the 70/80's and still is in your eyes, but I am glad that President Regan didn't use prejudices in his immigration policies and allowed my family in.
