The Costs of Deporting "Criminal Aliens"

Julia Preston has an interesting article today in the N.Y. Times about immigrants in prison.  According to the head of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Julie L. Myers, the annual number of deportable immigrant inmates was expected to vary from 300,000 to 455,000, or 10 percent of the overall inmate population, for the next few years. Ms. Myers estimated that it would cost at least $2 billion a year to find all those immigrants and deport them.
