US President-elect Donald Trump on Sunday reiterated his pre-election commitment to impose a stricter immigration regime, saying he will ensure immediate deportation of two to three million undocumented immigrants.

In his first extensive interview since victory at the election, Trump told CBS News that his government’s primary focus would be “the people that are criminal and have criminal records, gang members, drug dealers… We are getting them out of our country or we are going to incarcerate” them.

However, Trump’s statement is at variance from House Speaker and top Republican leader Paul Ryan, who has said that despite Trump’s campaign rhetoric, lawmakers are not prepared to form a deportation force to round up and deport undocumented immigrants.

During the election campaign, the President-elect had warned that he would enforce the provision of stopping of issuing of visas to the people of those countries, which do not accept their illegal immigrants.

There are an estimated 11 million documented immigrants in the country, out of which several hundred thousand are believed to be Indian-Americans.

In 2014, close to 200,000 undocumented immigrants convicted of committing crimes were deported back to their countries.

Trump also told CBS News said that he will build the wall along the US-Mexico border that was a vital part of his presidential campaign.

However, Trump stipulated that the wall — instead of being ‘big and beautiful’ like he repeatedly vowed — could end up being part-wall and ‘some fencing’.

“For certain areas I would, but certain areas, a wall is more appropriate,” he said, adding that ‘I’m very good at this, it’s called construction’.

The billionaire businessman said that once the border is secured, immigration officials will ‘make a determination’ about remaining undocumented immigrants in the country.



  1. People across the globe are eagerly waiting for the decision to be taken by Donald Trump once he assumes his office in White house. Majority may think he is rhetoric where most of his poll promises are hard to deliver. But it seems Mr.Trump is determines to put some of them into a real one. In his first interview after a thumping victory, he said, he will deport 2-3 mn illegal immigrants and may go to the extreme level of building a wall in the border surrounding Mexico. Never under estimate him, because he is good in construction!! Still it is hard to digest as it not matches with the ideas of a rational.

    But what’s wrong in deporting millions of immigrants who are not able to stay in a country legally? It is the duty of any country’s premiere to establish legal frameworks in the matter of immigration . More over it would be a blessing in disguise for many who are staying there because people with legal backup may also find some discomfort when numerous people are staying in an unlike manner. This move allows the people to be identified as those who are staying legally and illegally. More over this bold move make every nation to be alert on migration process and can reduce the habit of staying in a country without any legal formalities.
