Border officials are deporting illegal immigrants on commercial flights and private jets at a cost to taxpayers of more than $300,000 a day.

The Daily Mail reports that Immigration and Customs Enforcement spent $116 million in 2015 to deport 235,413 back to their home countries.

About 40% of the deported immigrants were convicted criminals. Another 1,000 were identified as gang members.

The average cost to deport an immigrant by plane was $12,213 in 2015.

Included in that cost are identifying the immigrants, apprehending them, lodging them in a detention center, putting them through immigration court and then removing them.
