Trump Announces Plan to Deport Three Million Immigrants

President-elect Donald Trump says he plans to deport ‘probably two million, it could be even three million’ undocumented immigrants.

Speaking to CBS News in his first TV interview since his election win, he confirmed that he still plans to build a wall along the US border with Mexico – but accepted that some parts might end up as more of a ‘fence’.

Asked how many people he planned to deport, he said: ‘What we are going to do is get the people that are criminal and have criminal records, gang members, drug dealers, where a lot of these people, probably two million, it could be even three million, we are getting them out of our country or we are going to incarcerate,’ he said.

‘But we’re getting them out of our country, they’re here illegally.

‘After the border is secure and after everything gets normalized, we’re going to make a determination on the people that they’re talking about who are terrific people, they’re terrific people but we are gonna make a determination at that– But before we make that determination– Lesley, it’s very important, we are going to secure our border.’

Asked if he would accept a fence along the border instead of a wall, he said: ‘For certain areas I would, but certain areas, a wall is more appropriate. I’m very good at this, it’s called construction.’

Interviewer Lesley Stahl asked if he meant ‘part wall, part fence’ and he agreed: ‘There could be some fencing.’

The line of questioning came from reports that the ‘wall’ with Mexico, which Trump made a pivotal part of his election campaign, would be too expensive.

There are an estimated 10.9 million undocumented immigrants in the United States, many of whom have spent most of their lives in America.

Over a million undocumented immigrants who arrived as children signed up to an amnesty offered by the Obama administration – but they now fear they could be first in line for getting deported.

    Mexico was doing all it could to get all of the illegal aliens “there is not one legal immigrant in the bunch” lined up to get their citizenship so they could vote for Hillary.
    I doubted at the time that any of them would be granted their citizenship if they are illegally in the country how could they even apply?? Mexico meddles constantly in our affairs what they hope to gain by that makes no sense to me. Just try meddling in any of Mexico’s affairs and see what happens, you would either end up in jail or ordered to leave the country. You know some states refuse to check a persons ID before they are allowed to vote well Mexico insists that all voters have a current photo ID that are all checked before you vote no ID no vote. They will not allow anyone that is not a Mexican citizen to vote. Even If you move to Mexico to become a citizen you are not allowed to vote that’s their law but they encourage their citizens that enter the U.S. illegally to vote in our elections.
    The one thing to get done is changing E-Verify to mandatory for all businesses in the U.S. that way all of the illegal aliens in the U.S. that have taken U.S. citizens jobs will leave simply because the jobs will have dried up, they won’t have a choice. This is not their country, their country is across the U.S. border with Mexico.
    Its been the Democrats the have refused to change E-Verify to mandatory since it was put in operation, since the Dems don’t have any power in either the House or the Senate anymore I hope it will be changed within the first hundred days.

    This is some information coming in from the EU from what I just found out, word of Mr.Trumps win has spread across the EU like a wildfire, the politicians that want out of the EU so they can take their countries back so they can say what they want to do about Islam and what it is doing to their countries are telling their followers to vote for them so they can have their freedom back to run their countries for themselves and not to prop up the elites. What has taken place in the U.S. is a movement that is spreading around the world. To read about this please go to gatestoneinstitute.org
