Michael D. Antonovich

The Los Angeles County Department of Public Social Services reported that more than $100 million in welfare benefits were issued to illegal alien parents for their native-born children in June and July alone, announced Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich.

The $100 million consists of nearly $40 million in CalWORKs (welfare) and $70 million in food stamps — representing 22% of all CalWORKs and food stamp issuances in the County.  At this rate, the projected annual cost is more than $625 million.

“With 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,” said Antonovich.  “These costs do not include the hundreds of millions of dollars for education.”

    i have compassion. including for children that were born in the USA.
    (although the 14th does NOT confer citizenship on them…)

    but what about OUR children?
    we are BORROWING money, from our CHILDREN,
    to pay benefits to people who broke our law,
    and came here illegally.

  2. another_engineer says:

    Can’t be.. we are told they’re all good Christians and hard working. ..

    Deport them in a trebuchet.

  3. StopTheFlood says:

    This article forgot to mention the BILLIONS that Illegals send to their homelands to support extended family members. That is money removed from OUR economy and put into the economy of another country.

I find it ironic that the 1962 fire that burned through Placerita Canyon was caused by spontaneous combustion in a pile of horse manure and straw that had come from stalls and corrals. It was a “dump” that caused the fire.
