Welfare Costs Outrage Antonovich
Total Annual Cost of Illegals on Taxpayers Exceeds $1 Billion
A new report shows illegal aliens and their families in Los Angeles County collected over $35 million in welfare and food stamp allocations in April, announced Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich.
Illegals collected over $20 million in welfare assistance for April, 2007 and an additional $15 million dollars in monthly food stamp allocations for an annual cost of $440 million.
“Illegal immigration continues to have a devastating impact on Los Angeles County taxpayers,” said Antonovich. “In addition to $220 million for public safety and $360 million for healthcare, the $440 million in welfare allocations bring the total cost to County taxpayers that exceeds $1 billion a year -- this does not include the skyrocketing cost of education.”
