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)

  • Donald Trump threatens to stop all USA’s aid to Pakistan on this  New Year.
  • Trump alleged that Pakistan misuses the funds and shelter terrorists.
  • Not only Trump, but Pakistan has been accused of the same by India and Afghanistan too.

President Donald Trump began the New Year on Monday with a blistering attack on Pakistan, saying it will get no more US aid as it was giving “safe haven to terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan”.

“The US has foolishly given Pakistan more than $33 billion in aid over the last 15 years, and they have given us nothing but lies and deceit, thinking of our leaders as fools,” Trump tweeted in his strongest denunciation of Islamabad.

“They give safe haven to the terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan, with little help. No more!” he added.

There was no immediate official reaction in Islamabad.

Trump’s announcement follows an increasingly tense back-and-forth between Washington and Islamabad after the US President unveiled his administration’s National Security Strategy.

He had then reminded Pakistan about its obligation towards helping the US because it got “massive payments” from Washington every year.

“We have made it clear to Pakistan that while we desire continued partnership, we must see decisive action against terrorist groups operating on their territory,” Trump had said. “They have to help.”

Pakistan is also accused by Afghanistan and India of harbouring terrorists ranged against the two countries. Islamabad routinely denies such charges. IANS
