Study Shows 25 Percent Of L.A.’s Welfare Goes To Illegal Aliens

Supervisor says county spends more than $1 billion a year on benefits to illegals.

 

According to new data from the Department of Public Social Services, nearly twenty five percent of Los Angeles County ’s welfare and food stamp benefits goes directly to the children of illegal aliens, at a cost of $36 million a month — for a projected annual cost of $432 million.
 
“The total cost for illegal immigrants to County taxpayers far exceeds $1 billion a year – not including the millions of dollars for education,” said Antonovich.  “With $220 million for public safety, $400 million for healthcare, and $432 million in welfare allocations, illegal immigration continues to have a devastating impact on Los Angeles County taxpayers.”
 
In March, illegals collected over $19 million in welfare assistance and over $16 million in food stamp allocations.
