The Deporter-In-Chief’s $834 million binge on Charter Flight Deportations

The spending data below is derived from the U.S. Government.

From 2009 to 2016, you will see how much the Immigration and Customs Enforcement paid private aviation companies on a year-by year basis.

As you can see, from 2009 to 2014, the Obama administration’s payments for deportation flights increased with every year as follows: 2009: $49 million; 2010: $104 million; 2011: $106 million; 2012: $129 million; 2013: $130 million; 2014:  $165 million.

In Fiscal Year 2015, the first year after DHS Secretary Johnson’s November 20, 2014 “priorities” memo, spending precipitously dropped by $72 million from the previous year and the lowest since 2009,  Obama’s first year office.

What does this drop mean? That Obama has had significant difficulties in removing  children and families, who are in his eyes the highest priorities for removal.

The steady increase in spending up to 2014 also supports many critics’ contention that Obama has intentionally ratcheted up undocumented immigrants deportations for 6 out of his 8 years in office.
