Antonovich says the costs are creating a “devastating impact” on the County.New statistics from the Department of Public Social Services  reveal that illegal aliens and their families in Los AngelesCounty collected over $36 million in welfare and food stamp allocations in May 2008. These findings were announced by 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.  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.

 

“Illegal immigration continues to have a devastating impact on Los Angeles County taxpayers,” said Antonovich.  “With $220 million for public safety, $400 million for healthcare, and $432 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.”
