Illegal aliens have cost the taxpayers of Los Angeles County California $35 million in welfare and food stamps for the month of July 2007 a new report revealed by LA County Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich finds. In addition to this expense, which totals $440 million per year of LA county taxpayer dollars, illegal aliens in the county chew up an additional $400 million for healthcare and $220 million for public safety each year. This totals over $1 billion per year in funds wasted on illegal aliens instead of American citizens and legal residents in the county.
One major thing the report ignores is that actual cost of illegal aliens to the education system, which as you would imagine is astronomical.
Funny thing though, try getting a few billion dollars allocated for a border fence and all of the sudden this "magical taxpayer money" can't be found anywhere.
LA County Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich has announced that a new report shows illegal aliens and their families in Los Angeles County collected over $35 million in welfare and food stamp allocations in July.
In the report, illegals are said to have collected nearly $20 million in welfare assistance for July 2007 and an additional $15 million in monthly food stamp allocations for an estimated annual cost of $440 million.
“Illegal immigration continues to have a devastating impact on Los Angeles County taxpayers,”said Antonovich. “In addition to $220 million for public safety and $400 million for healthcare, the $440 million in welfare allocations bring the total cost to County taxpayers that exceeds $1 billion a year -- this does not include the skyrocketing cost of education.”
All of this is coming to a county near you! Don't you feel lucky? I bet your kids and their kids will love this!
