Donald Trump reiterates plans to deport illegal US immigrants

Republican Nominee Donald Trump has reiterated his plans to track down and deport illegal US immigrants.

In a speech in Iowa he gave fresh details on how he intends to crackdown on those who cross the border illegally and those who overstay their visas.

Mr Trump also says he would prevent illegal immigrants from accessing welfare and benefits in the country.

He outlined his plans to supporters after a week of criticism from conservatives: "On day one I am going to begin swiftly removing criminal illegal immigrants from this country, including removing the hundreds of thousands of criminal illegal immigrants that have been released into the United States and the United States communities under the incompetant Obama, Clinton administration."
