More Cost Effective to Deport these Illegal Aliens than to Pay to Keep them Here

Commonsense would say that it is more cost effective to do a one time permanent deportation of every illegal alien in this country than paying them to stay here.

( 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.”

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.
