Well, at least we know what’s going to happen. No surprises. Get ready for mass immigration BACK to Mexico. Electing Trump has been the most help in curbing illegal immigration. And he hasn’t even gotten into office yet.
President-elect Donald Trump has said he plans to deport two to three million undocumented immigrants with criminal records from the country immediately – and has insisted that he will build his wall.
In his first extensive interview since he won the White House, Trump is reassuring his supporters that he will deport or incarcerate up to three million ‘gang members’ and ‘drug dealers.’
In an interview with CBS’s 60 Minutes that airs on Sunday evening – his first since winning the election – Trump insisted that he will build the wall along the US-Mexico border that was a vital part of his presidential campaign.
‘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.
‘But we’re getting them out of our country, they’re here illegally.’
According to an report by immigration enforcement, fewer than 200,000 undocumented immigrants were deported in 2014 who were convicted of committing crimes.
Trump didn’t specify what he would seek to do with the remaining estimated 9 to 10 million undocumented immigrants.
‘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,’ Trump said.
‘But before we make that determination…it’s very important, we are going to secure our border.’
Interviewer Leslie Stahl asked Trump whether the wall could be ‘part wall, part fence?’
His reply: ‘There could be some fencing.’
The nearly 2,000-mile US-Mexican border currently has high walls in some sectors, fencing in others, along with electronic and human surveillance in other portions, including vast desert areas where border officials have questioned the utility of a large physical barrier.
