    Donald Trump has vowed to deport undocumented immigrants from the United States, but after his victory was announced early Wednesday, undocumented immigrants answered back on Twitter, NBC News reported.

    They expressed solidarity against the president-elect's deportation promise, with #HereToStay beginning to trend on Twitter.

    "I'm 18.. I've lived here for 17 years... This is my home.. #HereToStay," one user wrote.

    Trump announced his candidacy last year by vowing to build a wall on the U.S. border with Mexico to keep out “rapists and murderers.” His proposed deportation policy would impact as many as 11 million undocumented immigrants.
