100,000 Children of Illegal Aliens Collect $23 Million in CalWorks Funding

98,703 children of 57,458 undocumented parents received aid in January 2006

In Washington D.C. to meet with Congressional representatives and provide information regarding the impact illegal immigrants have on our County system, Los Angeles County Mayor Michael D. Antonovich reported that nearly 100,000 children of illegal aliens collected nearly $23 million in Aid to Families of Dependent Children funding in Los Angeles County in January 2006 – or nearly $276 million annually. 98,703 children of 57,458 undocumented parents received aid in January 2006 – for a total of 156,161.  If incorporated into a city, it would be the 6th largest city in Los Angeles County. “While legal immigration is a positive influence on our culture and economy, illegal immigration has had a devastating impact on Los Angeles County,” said Antonovich.  “In public safety, healthcare and public social services, illegals cost County taxpayers nearly three quarters of a billion dollars a year.”
