Undocumented residents put severe strain on county coffers. Figures from the Department of Public Social Services show that children of illegal aliens in Los Angeles County collected over $20 million in welfare and over $19 million in food stamps in October 2008 -- an increase of $4 million from the previous month, announced Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich.

Annually the cost of illegal immigration to Los Angeles County taxpayers exceeds over one billion dollars, which includes $220 million for public safety, $400 million for healthcare, and $480 million in welfare and food stamps allocations. Twenty-five percent of the County's total allotment of welfare and food stamps benefits goes directly to the children of illegal aliens born in the United States.


"Illegal immigration continues to have a devastating impact on Los Angeles County taxpayers," said Antonovich. "The total cost for illegal immigrants to County taxpayers exceeds $1 billion a year - not including the millions of dollars for education."
