New York Times -- January 7 
Huge Amounts Spent on Immigration, Study Finds
    The Obama administration spent nearly $18 billion on immigration enforcement last year, significantly more than its spending on all the other major federal law enforcement agencies combined, according to a report published Monday by the Migration Policy Institute, a nonpartisan research group in Washington.
    Based on the vast resources devoted to monitoring foreigners coming into the country and to detaining and deporting illegal immigrants, immigration control has become "the federal government's highest criminal law enforcement priority," the report concluded. [...]
    The report responds to lawmakers, mainly Republicans, who have argued that federal authorities must do much more to strengthen enforcement before Congress can consider any legalization for an estimated 11 million illegal immigrants in the country. [...]
    "As a result of 25 years of investment," said Doris Meissner, an author of the report who is a senior fellow at the institute, "the bulwark is fundamentally in place." She said the existing system made it unlikely that an immigration overhaul could unleash a new wave of illegal migration, like the surge since the amnesty of 1986.
