New Delhi, Nov 14, 2016: 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.

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. (IANS)

Social Media Giant Facebook Rebuts Soros, Says no ‘Special Relationship’ with Trump

Facebook has refuted allegations by billionaire philanthropist George Soros that there is a special relationship between the social networking giant and US President Donald Trump.

Soros slammed Facebook at Davos last month, accusing the social networking giant of helping to re-elect Trump in the 2020 US election.

“While we respect Mr. Soros’ right to voice his opinion, he’s wrong,” Facebook said in a statement.

“The notion that we are aligned with any one political figure or party runs counter to our values and the facts. We continue making unprecedented investments to keep our platform safe, fight foreign interference in elections around the world, and combat misinformation,” Facebook said.

Soros reiterated his comments in an opinion piece in The New York Times on Friday.

“Facebook will help President Trump to get re-elected and Mr. Trump will, in turn, defend Facebook against attacks from regulators and the media,” he alleged.

“Facebook will work to re-elect Trump and Trump will protect Facebook,” the 89-year-old said during a speech at a dinner hosted by his non-profit Open Society Foundation at Davos.

“It makes me very concerned about the outcome of 2020,” Soros added.

Earlier in January, Facebook Vice President Andrew ‘Boz’ Bosworth claimed that it was the social networking giant that got Donald Trump elected as the US President in 2016 because “he ran the single best digital ad campaign I’ve ever seen from any advertiser”.

In a memo obtained by The New York Times, the key Facebook executive in the same vein suggested that the platform with over 2.45 billion monthly active users should not use its enormous reach to block Trump’s re-election in 2020.

“He (Trump) didn’t get elected because of Russia or misinformation or Cambridge Analytica. He got elected because he ran the single best digital ad campaign I’ve ever seen from any advertiser. Period”, said Bosworth who runs Facebook’s hardware group.

“Trump just did unbelievable work,” Bosworth wrote.
