Throughout his campaign, Trump has remained committed to building a wall along the roughly 3,218 kilometre U.S. border with Mexico.

The Republican nominee claims he will order the immediate detention of all known immigrants in the U.S. illegally who have been arrested for crimes, issuing “detainers for illegal immigrants who are arrested” and initiate immediate proceedings to remove them on his first day in office.

Even brands got in on the hashtag.

Many Twitter users expressed outrage over the comment, accusing Trump of using racist remarks during a presidential debate.
