The worldwide community condemned the comments, which were corroborated by congressmen who had been in the room when Trump made the controversial remarks.
Trump predicted earlier in the week that the exam would "go very well" and he'd be "very surprised if it doesn't".
Mr Trump previous year ended the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals scheme, which provided protection from deportation along with the ability to work legally in the US. Durbin called the moment, "heartbreaking". When Haitians' protected status came up, Durbin said Trump responded "Haitians?"
Durbin and Graham were told on Thursday that Trump would not agree to the deal.

Two Republican Senators, Tom Cotton (AR) and David Purdue (GA), claim they do not recall those comments. The president then suggested that the United States should "bring more people from countries like Norway". "This is for anyone who may be taken aback by my comments: I don't really care if you are".
"Haitians fought along United States soldiers in the Revolutionary War, and we continue to be great contributors to American society", Altidor added.
At the time, Trump was 6 feet 3 inches tall and weighed 236 pounds, which Bornstein said made him "overweight for his height".
The African Union (AU), an organisation which promotes cooperation on the continent, said it was alarmed by Trump's "very racist" comments.
However, some senators have debunked Trump's response. Instead, we will find unity only when we recognize that in our current president we have elected, perhaps for the first time in our history, an enemy of compassion.
