US President-elect Donald Trump has said that he will deport three million undocumented immigrants “immediately” after assuming office. In a television interview to CBS, his first after being elected President, he said that he will assort people by their criminal records.

“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 the country or we are going to incarcerate,” he told the news channel.

Trump has shown himself to be serious about the deportation policy, which was a highlight of his campaign from the very beginning. “…we’re getting them out of the country, they’re here illegally,” he said.

During the interview, he also insisted that the wall between US and Mexico will be built to prevent immigrants from coming in. 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.

        @ Nathan:lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;I thank you for bringing the illegal immigrants in India. The INDO-ARYAN-ILLEGAL-OUGS SHOULD BE DEPORTED TO CAUCUSES/WESTERN IRAN/STEPPES.

                    He is a man of his words. Mr Modi made similar promise 30 months ago.

                        Wow! You say exactly what I say: Trump, Modi and Putin are all in the same space of time! These are real leaders and they must be protected. They are, all three, giants fighting the Global Elite.

                              This is what Chris Evans ( Captain America ) said after Trump won - "We've let a hatemonger lead our great nation. We've let a bully set our course. I'm devastated."

                                          Trump will have tough time deporting illegal or criminal immigrants. Not necessarily all criminals are immigrants. American need cheap labours to keep farm and industries compeive as very few American want to do these Labour intensive jobs. Getting rid of criminals and terrorists or even s is fine but how the industries are going to manage when you deport illegal Mexican.
