Imagine the national cost!

Twenty five percent of the all welfare and food stamps benefits is going directly to the children of illegal aliens. Illegals collected over $19 million in welfare assistance for May 2008 and over $16 million in monthly food stamp allocations, for a projected annual cost of $432 million.

On 2007-10-02, Antonovich released a report that illegal aliens and their families in Los Angeles County collected over $35 million in welfare and food stamp allocations in July. “Illegal immigration continues to have a devastating impact on Los Angeles County taxpayers,” said Antonovich.[11] He issued a similar press release 2008-01-05.[12]
[SIZE=2]LOS ANGELES COUNTY, Jan. 7, 2008 -- New statistics from the Department of Public Social Services reveal that illegal aliens and their families in Los Angeles County collected over $37 million in welfare and food stamp allocations in November 2007 -- up $3 million from September, according to Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich. Twenty five percent of the all welfare and food stamps benefits is going directly to the children of illegal aliens, Antonovich said in a statement. Illegals collected more than $20 million in welfare assistance for November 2007 and more than $16 million in monthly food stamp allocations for a projected annual cost of $444 million. “This new information shows an alarming increase in the devastating impact Illegal immigration continues to have on Los Angeles County taxpayers,” Antonovich said. “With $220 million for public safety, $400 million for healthcare, and $444 million in welfare allocations, the total cost for illegal immigrants to county taxpayers far exceeds $1 billion a year -- not including the millions of dollars for education,” he added.[13][/SIZE]
Fellow L.A. County Board of Supervisors member Gloria Molina disputes the "bloated" figures.[citation needed]
Antonovich's anxiety about illegal aliens began before 2003.[2]

Typical of the anti-immigrant crowd to make up figures.

Typical of pro-illegals to deny the impact of the illegal alien invasion. If anything, the figures are probably understated.

you can be illegal and participate in the WIC program, as they don't require a social security card to get. this country is so freaking screwed up that there is NO fixing it.

Our criminally insane 'government' needs to end the Anchor Baby loophole with the provisions of 'grandfathering' in those children born prior to an arbitrary cutoff date. No benefits for those US born children birthed after the cutoff--------deport the kids as well as their illegal immigrant parents immediately.

Absolutely. You can't put two ton of "stuff" in a one ton truck. America just can't continue to bear this load. Tried to rep you but can't.

They have not had any negative impact on my life whatsoever. Maybe if you adopted the live and let live attitude you might feel better.

Try again.

Why should I have to pay for healthcare for illegal immigrants with my taxes when I have to pay for my personal health coverage out of pocket?
