1941 - Three days after Pearl Harbor attack, 165th and 185th Infantry Regiments assigned to Saugus; Edison power substation guarded 24/7 [timeline]


[Supv. Antonovich] – Los Angeles County Mayor Michael D. Antonovich announced that the Department of Public Social Services issued $291 million in welfare and food stamp benefits to illegal alien parents for their native-born children during the first six months of 2015. At this rate, the county will spend nearly $600 million in benefits for illegal immigrants by the end of the year.

Approximately $110 million was spent in CalWORKs (welfare) and $180 million was spent in CalFresh (food stamps) from January thru June.

More than 20 percent of the county’s public welfare funds are spent on illegal immigrants. This does not include the $550 million spent on public safety, nearly $500 million on healthcare, and hundreds of millions spent on education.

“Illegal immigration continues to cost County taxpayers nearly $2 billion dollars a year and siphons resources away from vital municipal services for legal immigrants and county residents,” Antonovich said.

  1. When a country has no borders, this should be expected.

  2. Todd Wimett Todd Wimett says:

    Amazing! Keep em coming in and eventually the legal citizens, business and businesses will leave.

  3. Here’s an idea, STOP GIVING THEM BENEFITS.

  4. Amazing what we give away to illegals…we need to get a grip on this give away.

  5. Why provide welfare/food stamps?….The government should only help with any medical need. If people are good enough to make babies then they should good enough to work.

  6. Gee another surprise!!! Along with the sanction cities that protect illegal aliens.

  7. That is why the election in 2016 are so much important

  8. Ossim Dawn Ossim Dawn says:

    maybe we should give them a tax ID number so they can pay taxes with us

    • Shoshi Maria Shoshi Maria says:

      They have a tax id number so they do taxes too and
      They pay like the rest of us … ✌?️

    • They do pay taxes as well, people before giving an opinion or judging should know everything

    • Some do pay. The ones that do tax ID#, are the ones hoping for citizenship. Some don’t.

    • No they just want their votes …

    • They have a tax id # and they do pay taxes just like you.

    • Rocio Garcia Rocio Garcia says:

      Yes we pay taxes like … But the difrence the work hard then u and we get less so so every time u speak think 2wice ?

    • Jeff Sporny Jeff Sporny says:

      NOT ONE Illegal, should be here…….PERIOD !!!!!!! It seems every single comment in opposition to this post is by a Latin person, seems a bit biased. I’m sure there are plenty of Mexican Americans that don’t want this invasion of illegals also. It’s bad for us ALL.

    • Tim Minnig Tim Minnig says:

      Jeff, this Irish American supports the parents of American citizens, regardless of their immigration status. Your nativist views put you firmly in the minority fringe.

    • Legal or illegal makes no difference for some people they jist don’t like Hispanics PERIOD!!!!

    • Illegals pay taxes as well as US citizens.

    • Jeff Sporny Jeff Sporny says:

      Sorry, Tim Minnig, you are just wrong. You ask most Americans if they think it’s a good thing for Chinese woman to be flown into the U.S. to just give birth to their babies to make a citizen ?????? Do LEGAL citizens want parents of Kids that have grown up in the U.S. Deported ?????/ NO !!!! Do the majority agree with whats going on NOW ??? NO!!! who cares if you are an Irish American, Most are of origins outside of America. Oh, I get it you are a Liberal white that is for Illegal immigration, so that makes you opened minded and progressive ! NO…..Just a Dupe.

    • Tania Janicek says:

      If having to pay taxes through a govt issued tax I’d number for illegal immigrants, getting lower wages for being here illegally, and working you ass off for no benefits is not acceptable – I would dare say to please go back to your native country….. But even with this crappy arrangement for an illegal immigrant – it is obviously still better than where you came from. My mother came to this country and followed procedure and waited her turn to become a citizen – I can’t understand why others feel entitled to not follow the rules.

      Jeff, your post is ridiculous.

      We don’t need to ask Americans about a mythical Chinese woman because there is ample polling about the issue.

      In Feb 2015, A Public Religion Research Institute poll found:

      “Roughly three-quarters (76 percent) of Americans favor allowing illegal immigrants who are the parents of children with legal status to stay in the U.S. for a period of up to three years if they pass a background check and have lived in the U.S. for at least five years. Nineteen percent of the public are opposed to this policy. Strong majorities of Democrats (87 percent), independents (77 percent), and Republicans (67 percent) support this policy, as do all majorities of all major religious groups, including majorities of Catholics (76 percent) and white evangelical Protestants (68 percent).”

      “Do LEGAL citizens…”

      Are their any other type of citizens? Do you imagine illegal aliens are citizens?

      “who cares if you are an Irish American”

      You should because you apparently were convinced that only Latinos, because of their apparent self interest, were posting in favor of the topic. Lucky for the rest of us, your opinions are shared by relatively few in the USA.

      Get a Liberal Grip, Tim Minnig, We can ALL put studies up to try to prove our points, it’s just your poll is a slanted biased poll that doesn’t reflect true America. Ever heard of Cloward ans Piven? Your Liberal God Obama doesn’t give a Sh*t about Mexicans, he’s just following the diabolical playbook of his communist A-hole mentors. Most Americans are fine and have history in immagration,….mostly legal, but immigration policy was always a limited endevor and had strict rules and regulations. This Country has always been a refuge for immigrants in the numbers we could handle and bless with the available resources. Being overrun and letting ALL peoples come across our open boarder with no controls and regard for legal citizens is a failed policy and will only perpetuate an already burdened and stretched economic American system, which will sink the ship for ALL. These Liberal idea’s are incompatible with the true American desire and ability to help The Worlds Immigrants. And as far as your “I’m Irish” deal,…… 98% of the favorable biased comments on here are from Latinos. Just because one White Liberal spouts some Socialist rhetoric from a flawed poll,….doesn’t make it true. You are such a white hero !!!!!!

    • Pay taxes for their assistance?

    • It’s well documented that a majority of the U.S. believe what Tim posted above. I didn’t realize it was up for debate. Republicans were ready to take this issue up under Bush and suddenly changed their tune when Obama took office. What a shame this issue has dragged on with no reform in several years simply because the GOP didn’t want to work with the current administration despite the fact this was one of the few issues both parties have agreed on over the years.

    • Tim Minnig Tim Minnig says:

      Jay, how does getting paid in cash keep people from having to pay sales taxes? How does it allow them to avoid gas taxes when they fill their gas tanks? The fact is, these people pay taxes except the income taxes that their employees, American citizens and corporations presumably, do not withhold because they wish to defraud the government. The fact that you blame illegals for not paying income taxes is ridiculously silly considering the employer is entirely responsible for the I9 paperwork, withholding taxes, etc.

  9. Oh yeah…and Trump is so horrible to the media and politicians for speaking the truth!

  10. Sheila Lopez Sheila Lopez says:

    I thought u couldn’t get assistance with out a ss #?

    • They cant. They get a card for their US born kids and use that to obtain welfare. Im all for immigrants that come here and do the right thing and try to become legalized but if youre illegal and drive better cars and have a better home than me, and i work hard every day and i cant get assistance after losing a job something is wrong…

    • The child is a US born citizen. The “child” qualifies for the food stamp. The adults dont, but their income is pooled into the computation.

    • Sheila Lopez Sheila Lopez says:

      Well then why do our school systems allow children that are illegal to attend school

    • The government allows it. There are also so many that have disappeared into the systems and gotten ss cards from dead citizens they cant keep up with them all.

    • Sheila Lopez Sheila Lopez says:

      My husband was here on a visitors visa when I met him … he had a visa since 6 months old and was visiting his cousin which was my neighbor … we ended up getting married and went thru the immigration process where u can’t work and they take away the visa so he had to stay here and when u dont have ur visa ur out of the country license becomes invalid so u cant drive and it cost an arm and a leg and took 2 years… there’s gotta be a better way if I knew it was gonna be like that I would’ve just moved to our house in mexico ?

    • There does need to be a better way but at least he knew it was important enough to do it legally, to go through all that work. I would think that after going through all that, someone living here illegally, getting all kinds of benefits and no taxes paid in would be a slap in the face to someone like your husband who worked so hard.

    • Sheila Lopez Sheila Lopez says:

      My husband didn’t want to get legal he wanted to go to mexico he was scared of the process and I said no no no it’ll be fine well little did I know after leaving our interview in tears from being belittled and screamed at I wish I wouldn’t have started not to mention after he got his papers we had to do more because we filed before we were married for 2 yrs that we had to file another application and pay $600 more dollars because his 1st card had a 2 yr condition on it we were still paying off the lawyer from the 1st process ?

    • Yea the immigration people are dickheads lol

    • They can’t these fool obviously can’t read the children receiving benefits are us born

    • They can’t these fool obviously can’t read the children receiving benefits are us born

  11. So what is gong to be done about it? First suggestion…like it’s a surprise…DRUG TESTING before giving the $$…that’ll take it down some right there…

  12. Karina Diaz Karina Diaz says:

    First and foremost what a racy thing for this group to be posting and secondly what a horrible and vague chart to display for expenses. What is the criteria for an “illegal” Mexico? Canada? Europe? And what is the benefit behind creating a seperate category for these expenses, seems like a lot of work for something that only highlights the opportunity for ignorant and/or racists remarks. Perhaps they should spend that time in finding ways to be more strict for these programs to avoid a scenario such as this.

  14. Will Fleet Will Fleet says:

    Ok, he announced these numbers. Now, what is he going to do about it? What action is going to be taken?

  15. It’s not just illegal aliens on food stamps and welfare that work the system … Just sayin

      A whole LOT of dinero!

      The U.S. is broke we need to save money. this is why democrats run our country. They twist things to make it sound like republicans are racist. We should not be paying for any illegal immigrants. They are NOT supposed to be in our state! Learn the difference, Don’t confuse an immigrant with an illegal immigrant.

    • Yeah…there are a lot of people on it. Problem is these people are not here legally. Do it the right way.

    • Jeff Sporny Jeff Sporny says:

      Tim Minnig , stop spreading your liberal idiocy, just because you have a Mexican family. How do illegals vote? Because dip sh*t liberals like you try to pass legislation that requires no I.D. to vote. And what does corporate welfare, that by the way, BOTH of these dirty political parties engage in , have to do with another evil……..welfare and American programs going to illegals? STF up. It’s a sad thing to see Santa Clarita and SO Cal, infiltrated by illegals.

    • Tim Minnig Tim Minnig says:

      Jeff, I prefer to call it educating the ignorant. I assume you believe you need to be disrespectful because you have little confidence in your ability to argue in a rational manner. Perhaps a Poli Sci, speech, or debate class at your local community college could help your very apparent feelings of inadequacy. Illegals don’t vote except in your imagination. If you believe otherwise, post your evidence from a credible source. Despite your claim, there is no liberal legislative effort to “require no I.D. to vote. That is the status quo and has been for centuries. it is the Voter ID laws, pursued by conservatives, that are that are trying to change the status quo. Sadly for you, and those who think like you, they have been cosistently found to be un Constitutional. Perhaps you should know something about a topic before you post on it.

    • Jeff Sporny Jeff Sporny says:

      Do I need a California State ID to Vote?
      ◾If you have voted before and your name is on the roster of voters, no. (Ed. note: You will be asked your name and address; the poll worker will repeat each back to you. Then you sign the roster of voters list. That’s it.)
      ◾If this is your first time voting and you are registered by mail without giving your California driver’s license or state identification number or the last four digits of your social security number, then you may need to show photo identification (e. g. valid driver’s license or state ID) or a paycheck, utility bill, or government document that shows your name and address.
      ◾To be safe, take a photo ID with you to the polls.
      ◾Update: If the poll workers check the roster and cannot locate your name they will assist you to try to find your correct polling location. If you believe you are registered to vote and want to vote at the polling location where you are, you are entitled to a provisional ballot. You do not have to show any ID in order to vote provisionally. (Source)

      Timmy, It’s more like Ignorant trying to dupe the Ignorant. As far as my feelings of inadequacy and my Education….I’m doing just fine, as I have seen through your Highly overeducated rhetoric, B.S. ,No substance Liberal Jibberish. And just because my patience for Trolls like you has run shy and I’m not a pussified little politically Correct dweeb, does NOT mean I’m stupid and uneducated, just a pissed off American Male with a load of Testosterone pumping through his body, because polite, wimpy, overeducated Liberals like you have continued to make America a less successful, prosperous, God fearing Republic. If you think illegals, dead people, multiple voters, shenanigans, etc. aren’t happening……you are a complete brainwashed dupe, (Oh Soweee, did dat hurt ur wittle feewings). So I posted some info for you above, The California rules are very subjective, and being manipulated consistently. Obviously like at the DMV, where an American has to bring every bit of documentation to just get a license, Illegals can get I.D. and CDL’s with very limited docs and proof of citizenship is NOT required, therfore a path to vote for non-citizens and/or no I.D. is required or asked for at the Polls, and that’s no sh*t Sherlock, I don’t give a hoot what your liberal self spews or believes, that’s just plain O’l truth. Also The Huffington Post is NO conservative Republican rag, and they spell it out pretty clearly, even for a genius like you. I done with going over this with you, You’re just a troll, I was making a comment in regards to what one of my FB friends said and since you thought you are going to change my mind or educate the the folks on here that don’t agree with your views, …….you have shown yourself to be the typical arrogant, troll bully Liberal that has brought this country to the abhorrent state that we find our once Great Country in. F off, ……PLEASE !!!!!!!!

    • Tim Minnig Tim Minnig says:

      ‘So I posted some info for you above” The blog you pasted sadly didn’t document a single instance of voter fraud, despite your belief that it did. I suggest you read it again, or better yet get someone to explain it to you.

    • You’re right, however ILLEGAL PARENTS, shouldn’t be here in the first plane, and we shouldn’t be paying WELFARE of any kind. We simply CAN’T AFFORD this. This is insanity.

  16. Aaron Kohler Aaron Kohler says:

    Doesn’t matter what the race of the illegals are. Being or getting here illegally should forfeit any rights or benefits. Most of their untaxed earnings will go to whatever country they are from. So they work without tax. Therefore whether their offspring was born here or not, not one single cent should go to anyone. The law that allows a child born to illegal immigrants on this soil to be deemed a citizen should be repealed.

  17. Lisa Reinhardt says:

    That’s BULLPUCKY!!!!

  18. A big part of this that people are missing is that these services are going to CITIZENS. Citizens that are CHILDREN.

  19. Please remember it is not “illegals” that put us into the. recession . Corporate welfare should also be a focus.

  20. Jet Garcia Jet Garcia says:

    All … Please remember this is not just Mexicans. How many languages are used when you go to the DMV or when you read tax forms. JUST REMEMBER THIS! And what is going to be done about it? Take away from the child you take away from the parent who is supposed to support the CHILD. Catch 22.

  21. Aaron Kohler Aaron Kohler says:

    Also seeing ebt cards accepted here signs at 7/11’s needs to stop. There should be designated stores that only carry necessity items. Basic food groups only. You shouldn’t be getting a free effing slurpee.

  22. Jesse Vera Jesse Vera says:

    “…welfare and food stamp benefits to illegal alien parents for their native-born children…” In other words CITIZEN children cost county $291 mil. in services.

      Tim no one ever surveyed me for this. I’m not trying to jump on you but I find it hard to believe.
      Where are you getting these stats ? How big was the number of people in this survey? Where and when was it done and by whom? What is the source of these results you have posted?
      do the Americans that are surveyed for this include children of illegal aliens? Just asking around Casually I came up with a large deviation from these
      Results.

      I agree that with Heather that birthright citizenship must end if we want to keep providing retirement benefits for the people we have in the system. It is no longer appropriate for the time period we are in to give anything automatically. We could be giving citizenship to a child of terrorists. There are only two countries who can cross the boarder of the United States without flying in or docking at port. Canada and Mexico
      The rest of the countries who’s citizens come here do so on a boat or plane.

      Closing the boarder to auto or foot traffic would have a great impact. A better handle on access needs to be done. Not just for birthright issues but for drug smuggling , human trafficking , disease control and criminals that take refuge with no extradition .

      The student visa system in the USA sucks too. People come in and never get deported when it expires. And they have children while here on a current or expired visa that are considered citizens of the USA.
      That is total crap.
      A issuance of a visa student or otherwise should include language that any childbirth while here on U.S. soil does not entitle them to U.S. citizenship the fees for a visa should be at least what a human trafficker would charge.
      They can apply for citizenship for their kid like everyone else.

      While on the subject, the issuance of a visa or the visit or return with a passport to USA by citizen or non needs to require proof of vaccinations or proof they are disease free of what we vaccinate for here in the USA If they have to be quarantined so be it. Think Ebola exposure.
      A foreign visitor to Disneyland created an outbreak of a disease that has been all but eliminated
      Here.
      For a state and country that is broke ass and charging the citizens taxes they sure forget how to save money or ways they could be making it in fees off potential citizens to be in a place of privilege. The amount of money in fees for applications and screenings needs to go WAY up. If someone wants to be here bad enough they will raise the funds. It should offset some of the tax increases for the rest of us . Besides they are already paying the coyotes big bucks they could be doing it legally and paying those funds to the USA to post a bond for background checks , disease screening etc. I can see waiving immediate fees for people that are coming here to escape political uproar in certain countries. But we let people come here with no intention on becoming a citizen. There should be consequences for being here for more than 9 months and not filing for U.S. citizenship. Your intent to become a U.S. Citizen should be realized by then. If there is nothing in motion by then you need to leave. Why be here if you have no intent of being a citizen.

      And here is the survey breakdown …. Not something I would really use to predict the rest of the country…but basically the majority wants immigration reform on both dem and rep sides when you get down to it.

      The majority of people who responded were home when called and were okay with responding. The time of day year and month called affects this. Working people are not going to be around to answer the phone generally during the day. This is right around new fiscal year and Chinese New Year. It’s a religion based group and that sometimes turns people off and results in hang ups as well.

      The Religion and Politics Tracking Survey, conducted by the nonpartisan Public Religion Research Institute, finds striking agreement across the political spectrum: 85 percent of Democrats, 73 percent of independents, and 62 percent of Republicans express a preference for prioritizing passing comprehensive immigration legislation. The survey was conducted by telephone between February 4 and February 8 among 1,015 respondents.

    • Thank you Heather Lombard- Samuel for actually providing accurate history and intent to the 14th Amendment. You just gotta’ love how liberals show reverence to the parts of the Constitution that have clearly been manipulated and abused from their original intent…ie right to privacy and abortion and the 14th amendment and illegal immigration. Gotta’ love unborn babies being murdered becoming a constitutional right and lawlessness being rewarded as part of the 14th amendment’s effort to protect black citizens. This is how liberals view the constitution. It’d be funny if it wasn’t so warped and disturbed.

    • What term should be used? Are you saying this isn’t intentional? Heads need to get out of the sand. I worked with a group of nice women at a hospital in the valley that explained very thoroughly how people come over, the steps taken once they get here to get as many benefits as possible, getting over here as quickly as possible once they are pregnant so their kid is a citizen, not getting married bc they get more money that way, each kid means more money, and on and on and on. Didn’t hear this from one woman or three, many… this seemed like unspoken knowledge amongst the undocumented.

  23. Looks to me like 2014 still spent 2.5 billion too much after taking the illegals out of the equation. Instead of 2.5 billion in handouts, creating jobs might be a better option. I still don’t see why I should have to pay out of my taxes to put food on someone’s table because they decided to have 10 kids instead of wearing a condom after the first

      FOURTEENTH AMENDMENT
      SECTION 1. RIGHTS GUARANTEED: CITIZENS OF THE UNITED STATES
      In the Dred Scott Case,1 Chief Justice Taney for the Court ruled that United States citizenship was enjoyed by two classes of individuals: (1) white persons born in the United States as descendents of “persons, who were at the time of the adoption of the Constitution recognized as citizens in the several States and [who] became also citizens of this new political body,” the United States of America, and (2) those who, having been “born outside the dominions of the United States,” had migrated thereto and been naturalized therein. The States were competent, he continued, to confer state citizenship upon anyone in their midst, but they could not make the recipient of such status a citizen of the United States. The “Negro,” or “African race,” according to the Chief Justice, was ineligible to attain United States citizenship, either from a State or by virtue of birth in the United States, even as a free man descended from a Negro residing as a free man in one of the States at the date of ratification of the Constitution.2 Congress, first in Sec. 1 of the Civil Rights Act of 1866 3 and then in the first sentence[p.1566]of Sec. 1 of the Fourteenth Amendment,4 set aside the Dred Scott holding in a sentence “declaratory of existing rights, and affirmative of existing law. . . .”5

      While clearly establishing a national rule on national citizenship and settling a controversy of long standing with regard to the derivation of national citizenship, the Fourteenth Amendment did not obliterate the distinction between national and state citizenship, but rather preserved it.6 The Court has accorded the first sentence of Sec. 1 a construction in accordance with the congressional intentions, holding that a child born in the United States of Chinese parents who themselves were ineligible to be naturalized is nevertheless a citizen of the United States entitled to all the rights and privileges of citizenship.7 Congress’ intent in including the qualifying phrase “and subject to the jurisdiction thereof,” was apparently to exclude from the reach of the language children born of diplomatic representatives of a foreign state and children born of alien enemies in hostile occupation, both recognized exceptions to the common–law rule of acquired citizenship by birth,8 as well as children of members of Indian tribes subject to tribal laws.9 The lower courts have generally held that the citizenship of the parents determines the citizenship of children born on vessels in United States territorial waters or on the high seas.10

      In Afroyim v. Rusk,11 a divided Court extended the force of this first sentence beyond prior holdings, ruling that it withdrew[p.1567]from the Government of the United States the power to expatriate United States citizens against their will for any reason. “[T]he Amendment can most reasonably be read as defining a citizenship which a citizen keeps unless he voluntarily relinquishes it. Once acquired, this Fourteenth Amendment citizenship was not to be shifted, canceled, or diluted at the will of the Federal Government, the States, or any other government unit. It is true that the chief interest of the people in giving permanence and security to citizenship in the Fourteenth Amendment was the desire to protect Negroes. . . . This undeniable purpose of the Fourteenth Amendment to make citizenship of Negroes permanent and secure would be frustrated by holding that the Government can rob a citizen of his citizenship without his consent by simply proceeding to act under an implied general power to regulate foreign affairs or some other power generally granted.”12 In a subsequent decision, however, the Court held that persons who were statutorily naturalized by being born abroad of at least one American parent could not claim the protection of the first sentence of Sec. 1 and that Congress could therefore impose a reasonable and non–arbitrary condition subsequent upon their continued retention of United States citizenship.13 Between these two decisions there is a tension which should call forth further litigation efforts to explore the meaning of the citizenship sentence of the Fourteenth Amendment.

    • Children born to citizens of other countries
      The Fourteenth Amendment provides that children born in the United States become American citizens regardless of the citizenship of their parents.[50] At the time of the amendment’s passage, three Senators, including Trumbull,[51] the author of the Civil Rights Act, as well as President Andrew Johnson, asserted that both the Civil Rights Act and the Fourteenth Amendment would confer citizenship on such children at birth; however, Senator Edgar Cowan of Pennsylvania had a definitively contrary opinion.[52][53][54][55] These congressional remarks applied to non-citizens lawfully present in the United States, as the problem of unauthorized immigration did not exist in 1866, and some scholars dispute whether the Citizenship Clause applies to unauthorized immigrants, although the law of the land continues to be based on the standard interpretation.[50] Congress during the 21st century has occasionally discussed revising the clause to reduce the practice of “birth tourism”, in which a pregnant foreign national gives birth in the United States for purposes of the child’s citizenship.[56]

      The clause’s meaning with regard to a child of legal immigrants was tested in United States v. Wong Kim Ark (1898).[57] The Supreme Court held that under the Fourteenth Amendment, a man born within the United States to Chinese citizens who have a permanent domicile and residence in the United States and are carrying on business in the United States—and whose parents were not employed in a diplomatic or other official capacity by a foreign power—was a citizen of the United States.

Then get your ass down to those fields at five in the morning and stay working hard busting your ass in one hundred plus degrees until eight at night for days on end only making what you can pack per pound. Get your ass to the factories and take your jobs back from those illegals who sweat and shed blood to make the clothes you wear on your back and the beds you sleep in. But to post something claiming or stating that illegal immigrants are the only ones wrongfully accumulating welfare checks each month is completely baffling.

    Anchor babies bringing home the goods. Birthright citizenship for children of illegals needs to end now.

  35. Too much when is it going to end

  36. I’m no math wizard … but illegals are about 1/5 of what is being spent…sooo if we get rid of all illegals we still have about 4/5 of possible legal people taking advantage of the system . MAYBE we should focus on that…

    This graph says nothing. What does illegal mean and who makes the determination? I can say this. I have many fights with DPSS who claim my clients are not eligible for cal-works or food stamps and they are under the law. Then when I speak to the supervisors, and quote the law, they smugly say, and I quote ” sorry we must have made a mistake” yeah, right. Happens all the time.

    That’s about what Trump got in tax breaks. But as always we point the finger at the poor. We are ALL illegal here. Let’s all move back to our ancestor point of origin and give the land back to the Native Americans OR we are all blessings from God and don’t hate. No one is illegal in Gods eyes. For those that hate be ready to be judged by God and be sent to eternal damnation.

  57. And by the way an undocumented person CAN NOT benefit from The food stamps program or Calworks

  58. If you in depth its more white people on welfare…. And so what!! The city has spent more on the Lakers .. Police security, clean up, and traffic… And they make up for by parking tickets and traffic infractions!

  61. We need illegals. America will crumble. What U.S. citizen will put up with nasty work conditions and accept being underpaid? Get over it. Look up Alabama HB 56- fail.

    • Americans worked before illegals got here. They will work again. It’s the employers that pay illegals less than Americans because the Americans pay taxes so they need a higher wage to survive. That’s the difference. We don’t need Illegals. They need/use us!

    • We use each other. The door swings both ways. Think about how our food gets to those nice air conditioned grocery stores. Among other labor intensive jobs we benefit from. And yes, illegals pay taxes. Lastly, before illegals and the illegals before those illegals were Native Americans. So I don’t know what your “Americans worked before illegals got here” means. Because before America became America, there were Native Americans. There is and always will be illegal immigrants here.

  67. If u look at the numbers the cost has gone down by a lot compared to 2014. Most illegal immigrants r hard workers and it’s unfortunate that most people continue to stereotype races due to the few the mess it up for the rest.

  83. This is our liberal county government.

  84. It is the 14th amendment anchor babies. 80% of North Hollywood is Mexican moms with American children as well as south Santa Clarita.

  85. our system sucks , some folks find it easier to qualify, when here we do have seniors who are finding it difficult to get by. where is the justice?

  86. Joohhnn Kim Joohhnn Kim says:

    so this country is spending money to feed the poor when they are throwing away $1.6 billion dollars worth of perfectly fine food? something is wrong…..

  87. kathy says:

    People you only have to hit “add comment” once to state your OPINION. Obviously a very sensitive subject.

  88. Nancy Pritchard says:

    My child is a student in the Newhall school district. When we have PTA meetings the principal at our school always states that the English language learners are the schools priority. Why is my American born English speaking child not as important as a Spanish speaking child? I know one reason I was told is that the school receives $3 for every Spanish speaking student compared to $1 for every English speaking student. Shouldn’t the English speaking students be given the same importance in the education system? The Spanish speaking child also has the advantage of being bi-lingual giving them an advantage when they grow up and look for a job. Our kids are getting the short end of the stick. I think a society where everyone is educated benefits everyone but please don’t leave our English speaking children behind.

  89. That’s a lot of money that could be used for other needed things.

  90. Michael Foth Michael Foth says:

    No wonder we’re in debt, go Trump!

  91. Richard Mace Richard Mace says:

    The U.S. is broke we need to save money. this is why democrats run our country. They twist things to make it sound like republicans are racist. We should not be paying for any illegal immigrants. They are NOT supposed to be in our state! Learn the difference, Don’t confuse an immigrant with an illegal immigrant.

  95. Thom says:

    I’ve two comments….1st…..Los Angeles County Mayor Michael D. Antonovich, I thought mayors were for cities not counties.
    2nd…I say send all the illegals back to whatever country they came from. Their kids that were born here? They can take them with them or put them up for adoption. Don’t understand how two illegals can have a baby here and it’s legal. If life starts at conception, where were these kids conceived? The old saying….Two wrongs don’t make a right. Two people here illegally is wrong, so their babies would not be right legally. The people who are here working, are taking jobs from those here legally. Legal people don’t want those jobs? Well then they shouldn’t be getting any kind of public assistance. You don’t get unemployment if you refuse a job (or that’s the way it use to be).

  96. Ron Leibsker says:

    If the illegal immmigrants had fought this hard to ‘change’ their own corrupt countries they would not have felt it necessary to leave and ‘rob’ funds from us. Yes ROB! They fill our jails and prisons with illegals. They leech off our goodwill and then think WE are wrong for getting completely tired of it all.
    Hit-and-run car accidents hardly EVER took place in this state until the illegals decided it was easier to run than face the law. Do you know how many hit and runs we have in this state now? This is another problem caused by those who decided it is better to break the law than come into this country the RIGHT way. TRUMP is hard to respect but by GOD he is RIGHT on this issue. It IS time to put this up for a vote! The ONLY reason our government has allowed this to happen is to “buy” votes. If our government decides to legalize all 12 million plus illegals who are mostly poor and uneducated then this state and country will look more like the country all the illegals are running from. When the illegals heard what this country would do for them for NOTHING, I too would have come over…
    Our leadership, and I use the term leadership with constraint, has failed all of the LEGAL people in this country. Illegal is ILLEGAL!!
    I respect ALL immigrants to this country but not those that feel we owe them a paycheck and thumb their nose at us. GO TRUMP! and those who believe he is RIGHT about this abuse from outsiders!!

  97. Kryssi Tyler Kryssi Tyler says:

    County didn’t pay for it the taxpayers in LA did!

  98. This is just ONE COUNTY! This must END. We need to Amend the Constitution and END ANCHOR baby status, and then END WELFARE TO anchor baby households. The illegal parents can go home with their kids, and those kids can come back if they choose when they are adults.

  99. Ron Leibsker says:

    Kryssi,
    Just for the record. The ENTIRE country is paying for these LAWBREAKERS, not just LA, and in turn, they offer this country very LITTLE.
    When most of them have their hand out to collect $$ in one form or another then we are ALL being ROBBED!

  100. Christina Rodriguez says:

    We have got to do something about this! Years ago I had a child who had a severe liver disorder and was dying. My ex husband left us. I was left with nothing, but an old car that barely worked of which I needed to go back and forth to CHILDRENS HOSPITAL. The welfare dept refused to help me because I owned the car and could sell it for money. My son died 5 weeks later. I was born and raised in California and worked up until my son became too ill to be left alone. Needless to say I have NO RESPECT for the DPSS!
