President-elect Donald Trump said that he will incarcerate or deport up to three million illegal aliens upon taking office in January.
In a Sunday interview, Trump told “60 Minutes” that he is going to “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.”
When asked about aliens that had committed no other crimes other than crossing the border illegally, Trump said that his administration would make those determinations after securing the border.
“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,” he said. “But before we make that determination…it’s very important, we are going to secure our border.”
Donald Trump made a campaign promise to build a wall on the southern border and when asked if he would really build it, he answered simply, “Yes.”
The interview is set to air Sunday, November 13th at 7pm ET on CBS.
