Washington : Donald Trump will keep his vow to deport millions of undocumented migrants from the United States, he said in an interview to be broadcast Sunday, saying as many as three million could be removed after he takes office.
“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,” Trump said in an excerpt released ahead of broadcast by CBS’s 60 Minutes program.
During the interview, he also insisted that the wall between US and Mexico will be built to prevent immigrants from entering. However, once the borders were “secure”, the government will determine if they are “terrific” and let them in accordingly.
“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 it’s very important, we are going to secure our border,” he said.
Trump was elected the 45th President of the United States on November9 defeating Hillary Clinton.
