DHS: ICE wasting $41 million by deporting on flights with empty seats

Recommended Posts

WASHINGTON, April 20 (UPI) -- The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency could be wasting about $41 million by deporting undocumented immigrants in chartered flights with empty seats.

A recent report by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, which oversees ICE, reviewed nearly 7,500 charter flights by ICE and found the agency spent about $12 million on flights that were less than 40 percent capacity between October 2010 and March 2014.

ICE spent about $116 million on flights with less than 80 percent capacity within the same time frame. The agency has access to eight charter aircrafts, which can hold up to 135 detainees each.

This group included aliens convicted of hundreds of violent and serious crimes, including homicide, sexual assault, kidnapping, and aggravated assault. The list of crimes also includes more than 16,000 drunk or drugged driving convictions.

The document reveals that the 36,007 convicted criminal aliens freed from ICE custody in many instances had multiple convictions. Among them, the 36,007 had nearly 88,000 convictions, including:
