Murkowski issued a statement saying what the president said in a disucssion about immigration “is offensive and doesn’t reflect who we are as a country.” She suggested moving quickly to resolve the status of “Dreamers” – undocumented people brought to the U.S. as children – “in a way that truly reflects our values.”
