One-Fourth of Welfare Going to Illegal Immigrant Families

You likely won't find this study quoted on the KC Blue Blog.

The LA Department of Public Social Services study found that 25 percent of Los Angeles County's welfare and food stamp benefits goes to children of illegal aliens, at a cost of $432 million per year.

“The total cost for illegal immigrants to County taxpayers far exceeds $1 billion a year – not including the millions of dollars for education,” said Antonovich. “With $220 million for public safety, $400 million for healthcare, and $432 million in welfare allocations, illegal immigration continues to have a devastating impact on Los Angeles County taxpayers.”
