Donald Trump vows to deport 3 million illegal immigrants and build a wall on the Mexican border

In an interview on CBS's 60 Minutes program, President-elect Donald Trump said he will deport as many as three million undocumented immigrants and build a wall on the Mexican border after he takes office.
"What we are going to do is get the people that are criminal and have criminal records, gang members, drug dealers, where a lot of these people, probably two million, it could be even three million - we are getting them out of our country or we are going to incarcerate," Trump said in an excerpt released by CBS's 60 Minutes program.
But we’re getting them out of our country, they’re here illegally. After the border is secure and after everything gets normalised, we’re going to make a determination on the people that they’re talking about who are terrific people, they’re terrific people but we are gonna make a determination at that. But before we make that determination, it’s very important, we are going to secure our border."

Leon Russell, an America rock'n'roll hall of famer, died in his sleep at the age of 74 in Nashville, Tennessee.
He was famed for his "gospel-infused southern boogie piano rock, blues, and country music", his website says.
Russell played anonymously as a studio pianist in the 1960s before his breakthrough in the 1970s.

He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2011. Elton John has called him his "biggest influence as a piano player, a singer and a songwriter".
Russell's had a relatively brief period of stardom in the 70s which was later revived in 2010 with the help of Elton John when the two collaborated on an album called The Union.
The record took third place in a list of 2010's best albums by the Rolling Stones. 
Over his career, Russell recorded more than 35 albums and was best known for his A Song for You. 
The song was recorded and covered by the Carpenters, the Temptations, Neil Diamond, Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin and his good friend Willie …

New Zealand's Ministry of Civil Defence and Emergency Management warned of the risk of destructive waves along the country's entire east coast and urged residents in low-lying areas to evacuate and seek higher ground.


 Anna Kaiser, a seismologist at GNS Science said a tidal signal or surge of up to one metre (3 feet) had been recorded in North Canterbury region of the South Island.

Clinton said Comey was at fault for her loss after he decided to send a letter to Congress only days before the election announcing that he was reinstating an investigation into whether she mishandled classified in…
