The United States will no longer offer illegal immigrants free flights back to their home countries.

The Department of Homeland Security began the program nearly a decade ago to fly illegal immigrants to Mexico.

More than 125,000 returned to Mexico City on the flights.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials say ending the program will save $100 million.

They add that a lack of demand for the flights has made them less cost-effective.

President Obama and Congressional Democratic and Republican party leaders, as well as many state and local officials, have created an environment of anarchy across the country. Illegal aliens flaunt their illegal status. Businesses continue to employ 7+ million illegal aliens in non-farm, payroll jobs thereby pocking $billions in illegal profits. Some states and localities refuse to turn over to ICE even illegal aliens who have committed serious even violent crimes. This is anarchy!
