Default Can you believe this?

A high-level immigration official says it costs $12,500 to arrest, detain and deport each person removed from the U.S.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement deputy director Kumar Kibble has announced that cost at a House subcommittee hearing. Wednesday's hearing focused on whether the Obama administration is doing enough to round up people working illegally in the U.S. ICE deported almost 393,000 people from the U.S. in 2010. At $12,500 per person the cost to remove them was almost $5 billion.

An estimated 11 million people are in the U.S. without proper documentation.

You are wrong. If you just put 37 cents, the letter will bounce back.
YOU NEED TO PUT 44 CENTS NOW.

Why deport...when there are other ways of milking money from them.

Create processing delay for H1B forcing applicants to 1000 fees for express processing.

Make them pay the 3500-4000fees for H1B s and throw a 221 (g) refusal and hustle all the money and get the quota back into the system to rip off again.

Give a shorter H1B approval for a year based on project duration so that they can get another round of fees after 1 year.
not to mention perm/ead/ I-140 fee bonanza....legals are like cows that can be milked 24/7/365 days a year....why deport them when you can get cash inflows. There are 85K fresh cows a year, 50% of which alone from one country: India.

something doesn't add up, did he mean $1250.
for example in the legal system, when a person skips bail, sometimes bounty hunters are used.
Bounty hunter - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"Bail in medium-sized cities averages about $3,000 to $5,000, and the standard bounty hunter fee is 10 percent of the bond's face value."

Bounty hunter fee: $300-$500
Daily detention Fee: $50
Transportation: $200
Enforcing the law: Priceless !

Whats the extra $10,000 for - golden parachute?

My $0.02 - 20 more like these and I could send away one legal immigrant

anyway $300 billion (according to OP) is too much to deport 30 million illegals.
