Antonovich Details Welfare Cost For Children Of Illegal Immigrants

mikeantonovich
Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich has released figures from the Department of Public Social Services showing that illegal aliens' children born in the United States collected over $50 million in welfare benefits (CALWORKS & food stamps) for the month of January.
Antonovich says that approximately 23% of all CALWORKS and food stamp issuances in Los Angeles County are made to parents who reside in the United States illegally and collect benefits for their native-born children.

"When you add this to $350 million for public safety and nearly $500 million for healthcare, the total cost for illegal immigrants to County taxpayers far exceeds $1 billion a year - not including the millions of dollars for education," said Antonovich.
