This is outrageous. American taxpayers are forking over $300,000 a day to taxi illegal immigrants home, just so they can come right back and do it again. They are flown on private-freaking-jets people. In the lap of luxury, we are ferrying people back and forth that break our laws and rape our entitlement system. Have you ever been on a private jet? I haven’t. But my money is paying for this crap. It just makes your head explode. Special privileges for people who break the law… as long as they aren’t real Americans. Almost half of these people are convicted criminals. ICE once hired a Boeing 767-300 to take an immigrant back to Nigeria. Just for one immigrant. They also hired Gulfstream IV executive jets for so-called ‘high-risk charters’ on at least 34 occasions. This just ticks me off.
From Young Conservatives:
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.
