    DHS confirms cheaper to deport every illegal alien than allowing them to stay

    DHS confirms cheaper to deport every illegal alien than allowing them to stay

    On December 3, Department of Homeland Security Assistant Secretary for Legislative Affairs, Nelson Peacock, responding to request from several U.S. Senators, including Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX), wrote: “Our conservative estimate suggests that ICE would require a budget of more than $135 billion to apprehend, detain and remove the nation’s entire illegal immigrant population.”

    In July 2010, the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) released the results of a study which examined the costs of illegal immigration at the federal, state and local levels. The study found that U.S. state and local governments shell out $84.2 billion annually in various services (law enforcement, schools, social services, etc.), with California taxpayers alone, spending $21 billion on illegal aliens every year.

    The same study found that $29 billion is spent every year in federal funds on illegal aliens.


    So, while it would cost a one-time fee of about $135 billion to deport every single illegal alien in the country, it is actually a bargain considering the fact that it already costs us $113 billion annually to keep them here.

    In other words, the mass deportation would pay for itself in a little over a year.

    Incidentally, in 2007, the DHS estimated the cost of deporting all illegal aliens to be approximately $94 billion.
