Trump says he’ll deport 2-3 million once in office

In an interview with “60 Minutes’“s Lesley Stahl, president-elect Donald Trump stuck by his campaign promise to build a border wall and said that he would deport “probably 2 million” or even 3 million undocumented immigrants once he was in office.

“What we are going to do is get the people that are criminal and have criminal records — gang members, drug dealers — we have a lot of these people, probably 2 million, it could be even 3 million. We’re getting them out of our country or we’re going to incarcerate. But we’re getting them out of our country, they’re here illegally,” he said.

“After the border is secured, and after everything gets normalized, we’re going to make a determination on the people that you’re talking about — who are terrific people, they’re terrific people. But we’re going to make a determination … but before we make that determination, Leslie, it’s very important, we’re going to secure our border.”

Stahl also asked about his border wall plans, saying, “They’re talking about a fence in the Republican Congress. Would you accept a fence?”

Trump replied, “For certain areas I would — but certain areas, a wall is more appropriate. I’m very good at this, it’s called construction.”
