The United States of America spent $116m in 2015 to transport 235,413 illegal aliens back to their home countries.
The math works out to be a slap in the face to the American taxpayers who are paying in excess of $300,000 every day to deport illegal immigrants on commercial flights and even on private jets.
The Daily Mail is reporting that 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.
When they needed to be taken abroad, ICE either used commercial flights or hired jets, including a Gulfstream IV.
At one point they hired a a long-range, twin engine commercial jet that seats 261 passengers to take a single illegal immigrant to Nigeria.
They had to charter flights for so-called ‘high-risk charters’ on at least 34 occasions, because of the number of security personnel they needed on the flight.
The statistics obtained by Daily Mail Online following a Freedom of Information request. They revealed that ICE uses commercial flights to send illegal immigrants back to 190 countries.
