Gonzalez, the liaison between the Executive Office for Immigration Review, which administers the immigration court system, and the American Immigration Lawyers Association, said DHS now has five attorneys assigned full time to reviewing all active cases in Houston's immigration court.
Gonzalez said DHS attorneys are conducting the reviews on a case-by-case basis. However, he said they are following general guidelines that allow for the dismissal of cases for defendants who have been in the country for two or more years and have no felony convictions.

ICE boasts approximately 19,000 employees
From the previous article:
In a June 30 memo, ICE Assistant Secretary John Morton outlined the agency's priorities, saying it had the capacity to remove about 400,000 illegal immigrants annually
So basically they say they can deport 400,000 a year in the previous article with 19,000 employees. Do the math. That is 21 deportations per employee per year. Almost 1 every 2 weeks. Not quite, 26 would be one every 2 weeks. It actually works out to one deportation per employee every 17 days.
Is it just me, or does that sound a tad inefficient?
Also, per deportation the price works out to more than 12,500 dollars per deportation. 5+ billion budget is from the same page linked above dot guv.
