Trump vows to immediately deport up to 3 million undocumented immigrants

President-elect Donald Trump said Sunday he intends to deport or incarcerate as many as 3 million undocumented immigrants once 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 told CBS’s CBS, +0.59% Lesley Stahl during an interview on “60 Minutes” to be aired Sunday night. “But we’re getting them out of our country, they’re here illegally.”

Trump said that after tackling the criminal element and securing the borders, “we are going to make a determination” on what to do with other undocumented immigrants. “They’re terrific people but we are gonna make a determination at that,” Trump said.


Trump also said he’s determined to build a wall along the border with Mexico, but will accept fencing in some places. “For certain areas, I would. But for certain areas a wall is more appropriate,” Trump said. “I’m very good at this. It’s called construction.”

Way overdue.
Just because, in the dead of night, you snuck into our country, swam across the border, or climbed a fence into the USA, doesn't mean you are no longer a criminal. It just means we haven't got you yet.
But we are coming.
Bet the house.

How in the hell is Trump going deport that many people? Is he going to make them walk back to Mexico? Who's going to pay for it?

US tax payers are paying for these coming from Syria and that area so we quit bringing them over here and use that money to take these illegals back across border. That Simple. Put them on a barge and set it to sea and let the currents take them where ever out of the US.

@10:04 Why not isnt that the way they got here in the first place? Why not let them make the long walk back home?
