I’ve never flown in a private jet in my life.
  But, my tax money is paying for these clowns to fly like royalty? 

Daily Mail reports American taxpayers are forking out more than $300,000 every day to deport illegal immigrants on commercial flights and even on private jets, Daily Mail Online can exclusively reveal.

More than 40 per cent of those who had violated visa restrictions were convicted criminals while more than 1,000 were identified as gang members.

The ICE revealed to Daily Mail Online that the average cost of every immigrant in 2015 was $12,213.
