Schwarzenegger Continues To Deny Illegal Aliens Have Significant Impact On California Budget

Bookmark and Share

Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger Girly Man
Soon to be Former Governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger continues to deny that illegal aliens have a significant impact on the California budget. He even went so far as to lambaste state government workers benefits while at the same time praising illegal aliens in the state. It is simply disgusting to watch for anyone outside of the bubble of California.

Estimates for the costs of illegal alien to the state of California in education. health care, welfare and other social services were estimated in 2004 to be $9 billion per year. Somehow the story below pulls some figures from the air - as they don't source their estimates as only $4-$5 billion per year. The current California budget deficit is $24.3 billion, yet Schwarzenegger says illegal alien costs are only a "small percentage" of the deficit California faces.

He calls those who point out the costs of illegal aliens as those who are just scapegoating illegals for the states problems. He then went on to try to personalize it by saying he is happy illegal aliens get those services because if he was visiting another country and got injured he'd hope that that country would cover his care. Idiocy. That country would expect him to cover his own costs.

Then he trotted out the tired old argument that Americans would starve and be sleeping in caves if it weren't for illegal aliens. "Everything we eat today is picked and created by undocumented immigrants, to a large extent," he said. "And every time we go to a restaurant and every time we go and move into a building, a lot of those buildings are built by undocumented immigrants' hands."

It is becoming clearer and clearer that Schwarzenegger has entered a delusional state where America would not even exist without illegal aliens. At this point it would not surprise me if the next thing out of his mouth is that there would have never been a Constitution or American Revolution without the hard work of illegal aliens. Americans are just that lazy, stupid and inane in his opinion.

Schwarzenegger has continued to lose his reasoning over the years and rather than being a person who looks at reality and makes proper decisions has become the "Girly Man" he so much mocked in his early statements as governor. Granted California has many issues to deal with regarding overspending and the continued ridiculous spending that the public votes into existence on ballots, but denying that illegal aliens have a significant impact on the state budget is just pure denial of common sense.

Sacramento Bee

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger ... warned that government can't sustain the current level of "unbelievable benefits" for public-sector workers.


In response to dozens of questions from readers who say the state ought to wipe out the deficit by eliminating services for illegal immigrants, the governor said it is a "myth" that those immigrants are to blame.

He said the cost of services to illegal immigrants, which has been estimated at $4 billion to $5 billion annually [estimated by who?], is a "small percentage" of the deficit California faces.

"Yes, it is something that ought to be dealt with, but the fact of the matter is, I think it's an easy scapegoat for people to point the finger and say, 'Our budget is out of whack because of illegal immigrants.' "


"You know something, as far as I'm concerned, I'm happy that they can get the services," he said Friday. "Because I would like to have the services if I'm somewhere in another country … if I have an accident with a motorcycle and I go to an emergency room, I don't want someone to say, is he here legally?"

Another RINO pandering to illegal aliens who are ripping off American taxpayers and turning our nation into a third world country. Hay Arnold---maybe if our laws regarding illegals were obeyed it would be Americans building those buildings!!!!! The invasion of illegals into California has distroyed that state and because Arnold wouldn't do anything about it he now has to find other things to blame for Californias demise. The good citizens of California must stand up and demand this pandering and support of taxpayer monies to illegals stop!!!!

Okay... so let's see his dollars and cents plan on the table. Cutting benefits to illegals don't have to be done at the emergency room. There are other areas to cut services to illegals that wouldn't be life-threatening.

This kind of false dilema is something Democrats are known for. Now the Governator has picked up the skill.

Good luck out there in CA.. Y'all have dug a pretty deep hole for yourselves. Just don't come looking to the federal taxpayer for a bail out.

You don't like his stance, so you post a picture of him in drag? Homophobic?

Wow are you so out of touch that you haven't heard of his "Girly Man" comments?

To me, this is not about the economy. It's about millions of Spanish speaking illegal aliens turning my state bilingual. An immigrant has a sponsor to help the immigrant assimilate. An illegal alien has no sponsor and has not promised INS to assimilate or follow immigration laws. If I were a Mexican national serving life in prison, my plan would be to escape to "El Norte."

He's an NWO shill. His real goal is the NWO goal. They want a North American Union. The NWO seeks to destroy our national sovereignty and constitution. They don't want the US to be strong. They want OPEN BORDERS... in that they want the US to lose it's sovereignty. Our constitution blocks them from a global "New World Order". The ***hats are meeting in Montreal right now like a pack of monarchs deciding how to rule us serfs. He's a TRAITOR to the USA. He's a global bankster elite puppet and slave cuz he wants to rule the world with the big banksters who are destroying our nation to bring in their New World Order. He's a toad.

From a number of stories I have read about the money mess in California, they seem to blame everything. One of the things that is hardly ever mentioned is the illegal aliens.

Now I don't believe they are the complete blame for the money mess, but the are a BIG part of the problem. You have what 3 million illegal aliens in California? I read it costs $19 BILLION a year to keep them there.Are the State Legislators happy with that?

Maybe it's time for California to get a State Illegal Immigration Law like Oklahoma, Missouri, Georgia, Mississippi, Utah, Nebraska and a number of other States. The states mentioned seen how much the illegal aliens were costing them and passed the law.
If you're not going to do anything about the 3 million illegal aliens, don't complain. This is one thing you can do to cut the budget.

"Says It Only Targets Major Felony Crimes"

Is stealing an Identity a Major Felony?

Is a forged document a Major Felony?

How about rape of the America taxpayers? That has to be a major crime. It's no secret that America has become the dumping ground for all the illegal alien children. Then we have to school them and give them free health care. Oh, yes, the parents (parent) get free health care, also. How many illegal aliens are in public housing like obama's aunt?

Yes these are crimes all caused by the ILLEGAL entry into this country. Another way the American taxpayer is raped is with the jailing of these criminal illegal aliens and the cost of deportations.

When we get rid of the illegal aliens, we will get rid of all the problems that go with them.

if california would get rid of the illegals they would have $10.5 BIllion more dollars to work with than they do now. Some people say they do the jobs people wont do well why dont we make the welfare people earn their check and have them do those jobs. that way people wont be so angry at welfare recipients they think are sucking off the system. now they contributing.

at 5 billion, a low ball estimate, it is 20% of the deficit, thats a good start, like a thousand politicians pandering to illegals and ignoring the will of 80% of the citizens to have the current laws enforced voted out of office, a good start.
