New statistics from the Department of Public Social Services reveal that illegal aliens and their families in Los Angeles County collected nearly $37 million in welfare and food stamp allocations, announced Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich.



In August, illegals collected over $19 million in welfare assistance and over $17 million in monthly food stamp allocations, for a projected annual cost of $432 million. Nearly twenty five percent of all welfare and food stamps benefits is going directly to the children of illegal aliens.

“Illegal immigration continues to have a devastating impact on Los Angeles County taxpayers,” said Antonovich. “Annually, the cost of illegal immigration to Los Angeles County taxpayers exceeds one billion dollars, which includes $220 million for public safety, $400 million for healthcare, and $432 million in welfare allocations. This does not include millions of dollars for education.”

Agreed. The arrest, prosecution and detainment is a waste of time, resources and finances without it.

Soon enough California will ask other states pay for their welfare problems... If a state can't handle its own problems, then the solution is easy, get rid of the problem and insure it doesn't come back... then rebuild... rebuilding with the same problems isn't going to anything... but I rather see Hollywood become like Bangladesh first...

I would normally agree but Mexico is likely to go down--------------hard. That nation is unraveling as well speak and the shock of millions of Mx nationals returning home may be their tipping point.

Good riddance to them and their cesspool country. Did you see the articles I posted earlier? Both Calderon and Fox are in the US. I guess the drug cartels are handling things until Calderon gets back.

On second thought, he may not be planning to go back.

I do not at all understand how the politicians in California think this is okay. I am just shaking my head. Is Nancy Pelosi really that strong out there? How can they continue to sustain this?
