$46,654: Annual Cost of Detaining Illegal Alien Exceeds Average American Income

The federal government paid a “bed rate” of $127.82 per day to house each illegal alien detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement in fiscal 2016, according to ICE data published in a new report by the Government Accountability Office.

Even if you do not count the extra day in that leap year, that works out to $46,654.30 for each detention bed occupied by an illegal alien for 365 days.

The approximately $46,654 it cost to house a detained illegal alien for 365 days in fiscal 2016 was approximately $104 more than the average income for Americans 15 and older that year—which, according to Census Bureau Table PINC-01, was $46,550.

    Why detain them. Set up a prison colony on say Guam and dump them there. No support, no money expended.

    I believe ‘Sheriff Joe’ could cut that cost dramatically. How much does a couple of bologna sandwiches and some pink underwear cost?
