Yesterday in a “60-minute” interview, Trump said he planned to immediately deport at least two to three million undocumented immigrants after his inauguration in January.
Trump told, “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 2 million, it could be even 3 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 added, “After the border is secure and after everything gets normalised, 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…But before we make that determination … it’s very important, we are going to secure our border.”
Trump in his campaigns also promised the Affordable Care Act, Forcing Mexico to pay for the border wall and Banning Muslims from entering the US.
Since winning the election, Trump and his key advisers have been backing away from some of those promises.
Republican House Majority leader, Kevin McCarthy told Fox News on Sunday,
“I think it’s difficult to do, First thing you have to do is secure the border and then we’ll have discussions.”
