New Delhi: US President-elect Donald Trump has vowed to immediately deport three million illegal immigrants after assuming office.

“We’re getting them out of our country or we are going to incarcerate,” the President-elect said in a television interview.

“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 the country or we are going to incarcerate,” he added.

He also said that a wall between US and Mexico will be built to stop immigrants from coming in.

“Hungary reduced the number of refugees coming in by 99 per cent in one day simply by building an effective fence and policing it. We know it can be done, countries have done it all over the World,” he said.

On November 9, Donald Trump was elected as the 45th President of United States after winning the electoral votes. He defeated Hillary Clinton in a stunning end to the presidential race.
