Estimate for Deporting Illegal Immigrants: Billion - The Lede - Breaking News - New York Times Blog

Quote:
He said the amount was calculated by multiplying the estimated 12 million people by the average cost of detaining people for a day: $97. That was multiplied by the average length of detention: 32 days.

ICE officials also considered transportation costs, which average $1,000 per person.

But that amount can vary widely, the spokesman said. Some deportees are simply driven by bus across the border, while others must take charter planes to distant countries, he said.

Finally, the department looked at personnel costs, bringing the total to roughly $94 billion.

That and we will recoop after a couple of years all the school costs, taxes unpaid, medical unpaid and more space in our jails for our own bad seeds.

They should make the illegals foot parts of the bill, as well as their respective countries.

It does not have to cost $97. We can easily reduce that cost, as well as the other associated costs.

Not if your businesses go with them. I think this will backfire.

Hope you are right, this also doesn't count the billions it costs to put up a 700 mile wall.
