The program was unveiled just days after Trump said in an interview he would deport or jail 2 - 3 million undocumented immigrants who have committed crimes in the United States, immediately after taking office.
During the campaign, Trump also promised to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. According to the Pew Research Center, 11 million undocumented migrants are in the U.S. – 5.8 million are Mexicans.
