Donald Trump doesn't have the money to fulfil his immigrant deportation pledges and must focus on securing his own borders before he starts sending people home.

That's according to leading immigration lawyer Harjap Singh Bhangal, who spoke to talkRADIO after Mr Trump announced plans to deport or jail up to three million illegal immigrants.

Bhangal, founder of the London Immigration legal service, told Julia Hartley-Brewer that Congress only has the funding to "deport 400,000 [people] this year, so 3 million is not going to be able to be done."

He believes there will now be "an increase of people putting cases in to stay in the country," but America needs to think about securing borders before they "think about getting rid of people."
