Donald Trump says he’s going to deport up to three million undocumented immigrants immediately

Trump says he will deport illegal immigrants with criminal backgrounds immediately. He believes this will result in him deporting between 2 and 3 million people.

Donald Trump has said he will deport two to three million undocumented immigrants “immediately” upon taking office – while urging protesters angry at his election not to be afraid of his presidency.

In his first television interview since winning the presidential election, Mr Trump insisted that he is going to carry out his hardline immigration policy proposals, while insisting that he would build a wall between the US and Mexico.

He also moved to assure his core supporters that he will not let them down on gun rights, abortion or immigration.

“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,” Mr Trump told 60 Minutes.
