President-elect Donald Trump is vowing to begin immediately deporting criminal illegal aliens as one of his first acts of office.
“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 two million, it could be even three million, we are getting them out of our country or we are going to incarcerate,” Trump told CBS' "60 Minutes" in an interview to air Sunday evening.
“But we’re getting them out of our country if they’re here illegally," Trump said.
He said he will begin making a "determination" about what to do with the remaining undocumented immigrants in the U.S. after the border is "secure."
“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.”
Trump has seemed to back down on his promise to create a "deportation force." On Sunday, House Speaker Paul Ryan also played down that plan.
