Antonovich Releases January Illegal Immigrant Numbers

Social services cost LA County over $36 million.

 

New statistics from the Department of Public Social Services  reveal that illegal aliens and their families in Los Angeles County collected over $36 million in welfare and food stamp allocations in January 2008, announced Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich.

 

Twenty five percent of the all welfare and food stamps benefits are going directly to the children of illegal aliens.  Illegals collected over $19 million in welfare assistance for January 2008 and over $16 million in monthly food stamp allocations, for a projected annual cost of $420 million.

 

“Illegal immigration continues to have a devastating impact Los Angeles County taxpayers,” said Antonovich.  “With $220 million for public safety, $400 million for healthcare, and $420 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.”
