The Cost of Trump’s Mass Deportation Plan

Trump’s mass deportation plan could cost taxpayers more than $117 billion over ten years (at least).

  • $9 billion: Mandating detention at the border

This, at a time when the federal government already spends more enforcing our immigration laws than all other enforcement combined.

  • $200 billion: Amount we will already spend over the next 10 years on ICE and CBP alone under current law, more than we spend on all other enforcement combined.

Here’s what else we could spend $117 billion on:

  • 7,191 new elementary schools

Trump’s mass deportation plan could reduce GDP by nearly $5 trillion.

Trump’s mass deportation plan could contribute to the loss of nearly 3.5 million jobs over the next four years.

  • Nearly 3.5 million jobs: According to Moody’s, Trump’s immigration policies would contribute to the loss of nearly 3.5 million jobs over the next four years
