Children Of Illegal Aliens Drain System Of Funding

Figures from the Department of Public Social Services show
that children of illegal aliens in Los Angeles
County
collected $450 million in
welfare and food stamps in 2008 – an increase of $25 million from the previous
year, announced Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich

 

Annually the cost of illegal immigration to Los
Angeles
County

taxpayers exceeds over one billion dollars, which includes $220 million for
public safety, $400 million for healthcare, and $450 million in welfare and
food stamps allocations.  Twenty-five percent of the County’s total
allotment of welfare and food stamps benefits goes directly to the children of
illegal aliens born in the United States

 

“Illegal immigration continues to have a devastating impact
on Los AngelesCounty
taxpayers,” said Antonovich.  “The total cost for illegal immigrants to
County taxpayers exceeds $1 billion a year – not including the millions of
dollars for education.”
