Trump’s use of troops at border could cost $42M to $110M, study shows | The Hill

The Trump administration’s deployment of active duty troops to the U.S-Mexico border could cost between $42 million to $110 million, according to a new independent study.

The Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments (CSBA) estimates that it would cost between $112 and $143 per troop per day in operation and maintenance costs for the deployment, officially named Operation Faithful Patriot.

The use of military aircraft in the operation would cost an additional $136,645 per day, according to CSBA.
