Report: Los Angeles County officials say that illegal-aliens parents residing in the county with their children will likely receive approximately $650 million of taxpayer-subsidized welfare benefits in 2013
The report states that $376 million has been handed out through July 2013. Of the $376 million, $54 million was in welfare benefits, $20 million in CalWORKs the state's program that provides cash and services to needy families, and $34 million in food stamps. "When you add 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," County Supervisor Michael Antonovich said. "These costs do not even include the hundreds of millions of dollars spent annually for education." It's estimated that 60,000 illegal-alien parents of 100,000 children live in Los Angeles County. Is taking welfare benefits one of those "jobs" that Americans just won't do?
