I doesn't matter what the mass deportation cost is or who calculated it
I don't know about you, but I would rather pay a 1 time fee that pays for itself within 2 years,
rather than an annual fee that keeps going up millions of dollars higher every year with no end in sight.
Anyone with a brain can see that there's no comparison....No matter how high the cost of mass deportation is.

Don't know about any of you, but i'm more then ready to send then packing now. Illegal in my books has alwyas been about doing something that is wrong and not right, what part of Illegal does our Government not GRASP. They are costing us way too much money, and the crime element is not helping us one bit either. I see no benefit of Illegals being here, except of gaining popularity for the Demtwits, who cater to their every whim. They know they are going to get their votes, but if they smartened up a bit, they would soon catch on, to why so many want them to stay. Give these people an inch, and before you know it, they are taking more then a foot, and the demands are starting to happen. No benefit to them being here, if they love this Country so much, come here legally, or go back home to your own Country. What demands will you bring Home with you. And how will your Country Accept you and your demands.

When do you starting hunting down and deporting all the criminal invaders?

They are NOT aliens, they are trespassing criminal invaders.

And remove the Spanish from my roads, signs, stores and my phone.

I want English only and do not want to hear push 2 for any other language.

Illegals have bankrupted schools, hospitals, towns etc and it needs to stop.

Then many of the diseases the illegals are carrying to our kids will be gone once again.

When do we get started?

I remember doing some research on my own and coming up with this pretty obvious conclusion. LOL Not intending to say I did great research, but trying to show the obvious fact of this.

common sense has nothing to with the reality of hard-cold numbers.

the article says it would cost 135 billon to apprehend, detain, and deport 10 million illegal aliens.

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.”
Do the simple math...that means it would only cost $13,500 per person. You tell me; is $13,500 a high, low or a incredibly low number?

My common sense tells me that 13.5K is a very low to incredible number. If DHS can do it for that amount, then it would be a Holy miracle.

sorry you have a problem with American business or international business-for that mater- serving their customers as they see fit. Maybe you should do business with English-only speaking businesses.

PS. what does businesses that have prompts in Spanish, have to do with illegal aliens. To presume that all Spanish-speaking people are illegals is ridiculous. And to say that the only reason these business have Spanish language prompts is because illegals are here...is non-factual and "tired".

Since the majority of Hispanic citizens can speak English why other than to reach illegal aliens are they advertising in Spanish and only hiriing bi-lingual or Spanish speaking employees? You really need a reality check. One can practically trace back "press 2 for Spanish" to when this mass illegal invasion started to peak.

I don't know how much it would cost and neither does anyone else because we don't even know how many illegals are actually in the country. What I do know is that even 1 illegal is too many and they cost this nation way to much in lost revenue alone.
I also know that it will cost way less than what the pro-illegal side claims.
We have seen the result of crack downs and how illegals self deport from an area. If we add a measure that calls for siezing their assets they will flock to the border on their own as soon as we start to get serious.
