Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley says the Government hopes that US President-elect Donald Trump's intention to deport millions of undocumented immigrants does not become US policy.

Rowley said, though, that Trinidad and Tobago will have no choice but to absorb its citizens if they are indeed sent back home.




In his first post-election interview on Sunday, Trump said he planned to immediately deport or jail about two to three million undocumented immigrants, which included those with criminal records, gang members and drug dealers.

Speaking to reporters following a local government elections campaign walk-about in St Joseph yesterday afternoon, Rowley said the Government will be keeping a close eye on the development.
