Sponsored By:

New statistics from the Department of Public Social Services
reveal that illegal aliens and their families in Los
Angeles County
collected nearly $37 million in welfare and food stamp allocations, announced
Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich.

 

In August, illegals collected over $19 million in welfare
assistance and over $17 million in monthly food stamp allocations, for a
projected annual cost of $432 million. 
Nearly twenty five percent of all welfare and food stamps benefits is
going directly to the children of illegal aliens.

 

“Illegal immigration continues to have a devastating impact on
Los Angeles County
taxpayers,” said Antonovich.   “Annually, the cost of illegal immigration to Los
Angeles County
taxpayers exceeds one billion dollars, which includes $220 million for public
safety, $400 million for healthcare, and $432 million in welfare allocations.  This does not include millions of dollars for
education.”
