From The Daily Mail:

American taxpayers are forking out more than $300,000 every day to deport illegal immigrants on commercial flights and even on private jets, Daily Mail Online can exclusively reveal.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) spent $116m in 2015 to transport 235,413 people in the United States illegally back to their home countries.

More than 40 per cent of those who had violated visa restrictions were convicted criminals while more than 1,000 were identified as gang members.

A group campaigning for taxpayers’ rights have said the figures obtained by the Daily Mail Online are ‘insane’ and an ‘outrageous waste of tax dollars’.

The ICE revealed to Daily Mail Online that the average cost of every immigrant in 2015 was $12,213.

The cost includes identifying the immigrant, apprehending them, placing them in a detention center, their process through immigration court and their subsequent removal.

To remove an illegal immigrant costs an average of $1,962. This includes both ground and air fares.

When they needed to be taken abroad, ICE either used commercial flights or hired jets, including a Gulfstream IV.

At one point they hired a a long-range, twin engine commercial jet that seats 261 passengers to take a single illegal immigrant to Nigeria.

They had to charter flights for so-called ‘high-risk charters’ on at least 34 occasions, because of the number of security personnel they needed on the flight.

The statistics obtained by Daily Mail Online following a Freedom of Information request. They revealed that ICE uses commercial flights to send illegal immigrants back to 190 countries.

David Williams, president of the Taxpayers Protection Alliance, told Daily Mail Online: ‘This is insane.’

I’m glad I can work all year so that people who have broken the law get a free luxury ride back to the starting line, so they can just hop the border again once they get back.
