LA County Supervisor Michael Antonovich: Illegal Immigrants Cost Taxpayers $1.6 Billion Annually

Wow - Not all Californians are ignoring the cost of illegal aliens! Estimated $650 Million in Welfare Benefits to ILLEGALs in ONE County - Los Angeles Count, CA.

Evan Bleier at Opposing Views reports: California officials estimate that $650 million in welfare benefits will be distributed to undocumented immigrant parents in Los Angeles County in 2013.

LA County Supervisor Michael Antonovich announced that more than $376 million in CalWORKs benefits and food stamps had already been given to undocumented immigrant parents for their native-born children through July. The latest figures were reported from the Department of Public Social Services.

The data indicated that LA Country distributes about $54 million in welfare payments each month. The benefits that are issued consist of nearly $20 million in CalWORKs and $34 million in food stamps.

The estimated $54 million that was issued in July 2013 is up about $1 million from the nearly $53 million in total benefits issued in July 2012. According to Antonovich, about 100,000 children of 60,000 undocumented parents receive aid in LA County, CBS Local reported.

“When you add the $550 million for public safety and nearly $500 million for healthcare, the total cost for illegal immigrants to county taxpayers exceeds $1.6 billion dollars a year,” Antonovich said in a statement. “These costs do not even include the hundreds of millions of dollars spent annually for education.”
