Actually, they can deduct the costs from the foreign aid their home country receives from us.

You cannot deny that the overwhelming majority are from Mexico and points south of our border. We don't know how many are here from other nations either, but I know that Spanish is the second most spoken language in Los Angeles (if not the first), and I haven't called up the DWP lately and had the "Press three for Swahili" option. So face the fact that the majority are from Spanish speaking nations which means Mexico.
