Trump Plots Deportation of Three Million Immigrants
President-elect, Donald Trump, has revealed plans to deport or jail between two to three million immigrants as soon as he assumes power.
In an interview with US broadcaster CBS, Trump said those targeted would be migrants with criminal records, such as gang members and drug dealers.
The BBC wrote that he also confirmed that another election promise, to build a wall with Mexico, still stood but could include fencing.
The Republican defeated Democrat Hillary Clinton in Tuesday’s presidential vote.
His victory shocked many who had expected Mrs Clinton to win following favourable opinion polls.
Mr Trump is due to take over at the White House on 20 January, when Barack Obama steps down after two terms in office.
Both houses of Congress are also under Republican control.
It is the first time since winning the US presidency that Donald Trump will be putting a number on how many people he plans to deport from US soil and it’s a big one – two to three million.
