The revelation came out in a report titled “Immigration Enforcement in the United States: The Rise of a Formidable Machinery”  from the Migration Policy Institute.

The study indicates the Obama Administration spent nearly 18 billion dollars on immigration enforcement during the last fiscal year. That’s compared to the combined expenditures of 14.4 billion for the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Secret Service, the U.S. Marshals Service and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
