Illegal Immigrant Costs Continue To Grow

County supervisor warns costs are hurting county in challenging financial times.

Figures from the Department of Public Social Services show
that children of illegal aliens in Los Angeles
County collected over $21 million
in welfare and over $21 million in food stamps in February 2009 — an increase
of $1 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-four percent of the County’s total
allotment of welfare and food stamp 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.”
