Dear Friend,

It's Giving Tuesday. In these times of COVID-19, climate chaos and elections, independent news is more important than ever. You turn to Democracy Now! because you trust that when we're reporting on the pandemic or the uprisings against police brutality—or the climate crisis—our coverage is not brought to you by the fossil fuel, insurance or weapons industries or Big Pharma. We count on YOU to make our work possible. If everyone who visits our website gave just $8, we could cover our operating costs for 2021. Really—that’s all it would take. And today a generous supporter will TRIPLE your donation to Democracy Now!, meaning your gift will go three times as far. This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to make a donation, please do so today. Stay safe, wear a mask and thank you so much.
-Amy Goodman

In “60 Minutes” Interview, Trump Pledges to Deport Up to 3 Million People

HeadlineNov 14, 2016

Trump also pledged to deport up to 3 million undocumented people during an interview with “60 Minutes” that aired Sunday. This is “60 Minutes” correspondent Lesley Stahl.

Lesley Stahl: “Let’s go through very quickly some of the promises you made, and tell us if you’re going to do what you said—”

Donald Trump: “OK, sure.”

Lesley Stahl: “—or you’re going to change it in any way. Are you really going to build a wall?”

Donald Trump: “Yes.”

Lesley Stahl: “They’re talking about a fence in the Republican Congress. Would you accept a fence?”

Donald Trump: “For certain areas, I would. But certain areas, a wall is more appropriate. I’m very good at this. This is called construction. But a fence will be—”

Lesley Stahl: “So, part wall, part fence?”

Donald Trump: “Yeah, it could be—it could be some fencing.”

Lesley Stahl: “What about the pledge to deport millions and millions of undocumented immigrants?”

Donald Trump: “What we are going to do is get the people that are criminal and have criminal records, gang members, drug dealers—we have a lot of these people, probably 2 million, it could even be 3 million. We are getting them out of our country, or we’re going to incarcerate. But we’re getting them out of our country. They’re here illegally.”
