Martin Luther King Jr. Day 2018: What's open and what's closed

However, the number of fee-free days at has been cut to four in 2018: Monday (Martin Luther King Day), April 21 (first day of National Park Week), Sept. 22 (National Public Lands Day) and November 11 (Veterans Day).

On Thursday, The Washington Post reported that Trump questioned in a meeting with lawmakers on Thursday why the US would accept immigrants from "s--hole countries" like Haiti or in Africa rather than in places like Norway.

"I think Montae will inspire other young people to get involved", said Yvette Young, vice president of Programs and Operations for the Urban League of Hampton Roads.

"Why are we having all these people from sh*thole countries come here?" the president said in the Thursday afternoon Oval Office meeting with a handful of members of the House and Senate. "Nothing that Donald Trump says can change that".


According to the Post, Trump then suggested that the U.S. Never said "take them out".

Trump denied that he ever used the term "shithole countries" to describe Haiti, El Salvador and African nations, though he admitted using "tough" language in the meeting. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., said that "the president's expressed desire to see more immigrants from countries like Norway must be called out for what it is: an effort to set this country back generations by promoting a homogeneous, white society".

"Mr. President are you a racist?" Thanks to Dr. King and other great Civil Rights leaders, our children grow up believing that no one should be judged on the color of their skin, and that everyone deserves an equal opportunity for a bright future, no matter their background.

Trump did not publicly address the controversy during the ceremony and ignored repeated questions about it from reporters in the room.
