In Donald Trump’s first exclusive interview since winning the White House, he says he will ‘immediately’ deport up to 3 million illegal immigrants with criminal records. Plus, he says will definitely be building that wall he’s been preaching about. Get all the details here.
In the interview, which will air during the Nov. 13 episode of 60 Minutes, Donald 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. But we’re getting them out of our country, they’re here illegally.”
He didn’t, however, say what he plans on doing with the remaining 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.”
When interviewer Leslie Stahl asked Trump whether the wall could be “part wall, part fence,” he replied, “There could be some fencing.” As you already know, Trump kicked off his presidential campaign by outlining his stance on immigration. From the very beginning, he proposed building a wall, and making Mexico pay for it, in order to keep illegal immigrants out of the United States because “when Mexico sends its people,” he said, they’re sending “rapists” and “criminals.”
