What Exactly is the Cost to Deport Illegal Aliens?

In the first House immigration subcommittee of the current Congress, it's finally being revealed to the American Taxpayer how much it costs to deport one single illegal alien.

According to the LA Times, the cost just for a single deportation: $12,500. Seriously.

In the course of the House Judiciary Committee's Subcommittee on Immigration Policy and Enforcement hearings entitled "ICE Worksite Enforcement - Up to the Job?", Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) deputy director Kumar Kibble testified that 393,000 illegals in 2010 alone were deported at a total cost of almost $5 billion. That's a 5 followed by 9 zeros.

I say ship 'em back! The cost of deporting them will cost far less than keeping them here where they will suck the economy dry with their high rate of crime, their freeloading on the healthcare system, and their non-payment of taxes for the services we have to pay for!
