The state has more than a dozen official sanctuary counties that have recently discharged convicted or arrested criminal aliens. Police throughout the Keystone State refuse to honor a local-federal partnership known as 287(g) that notifies ICE of jail inmates in the country illegally so that they can be deported after serving time for state crimes . . .

An individual inmate incarcerated in the DOC prison system costs the state approximately ($108.26) per day.

The DOC’s incarceration cost for 662 Mexican national inmates is approximately ($71,668.12) per day, ($501,676.84) per week, and ($26,158,863.80) per year.

None of preceding cost estimates for the DOC to incarcerate the 662 Mexican national inmates includes the dollar amount for legal services (indigent defense), language interpreters, court costs, or victim assistance.
