Trump says he will deport 2-3M undocumented workers as promised

WASHINGTON: Honoring his election promise to get tough with illegal aliens President-elect Donald Trump has said that his administration will deport or jail as many as 2-3 million undocumented aliens after he takes office.

During an interview in American CBS TV program “60 Minutes” Trump 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.”

The US President-elect also reiterated that, as promised, he would build the wall at US-Mexican border to help stop illegal crossings into the United States.

According to the Pew Research Center, there are about 11 million undocumented immigrants in the U.S., and around two-thirds of them have been living here for a decade or more.
