It costs $12,500 to deport an undocumented immigrant; the U.S. spent $5 billion in 2010

Noticiero Telemundo (Telemundo’s news broadcast), for example, said that “Republicans responded to Obama with anti-immigrant policies.”

Al Día (Philadelphia) writes that “support for mass deportation won out over support for immigration reform during the hearing held by the Immigration Subcommittee of the U.S. House of Representatives.” 

And Notimex writes that “the Republicans asked Obama to conduct raids to protect American jobs.”

The AP reports that deporting each undocumented immigrant costs $12,500, and that in 2010, with almost 400,000 people deported, the total cost reached $5 billion.
