Did they just pick the states with the smallest populations?

What an absurd study! None of the states considered are on the southern border.

Yeah but what they don’t tell you is the cost on average to incarcerate someone in prison, depending on the state can be $30-45k/inmate. Which is also paid for by tax payer money. And private prisons have quotas that if not met can charge the state for the expected loss of profit.
