Stand with Arizona
California is America's Sanctuary State - and Mexico's outsourced welfare state.
The Los Angeles County Department of Public Social Services reported that more than $100 million in welfare benefits were issued to illegal alien parents for their native-born children in June and July alone, announced Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich.
The $100 million consists of nearly $40 million in CalWORKs (welfare) and $70 million in food stamps representing 22% of all CalWORKs and food stamp issuances in the County. At this rate, the projected annual cost is more than $625 million.
With 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, said Antonovich. These costs do not include the hundreds of millions of dollars for education.So a staggering 22% of ALL welfare payouts for L.A. County go to illegal aliens and their children - more than 90% from Mexico.
Meanwhile Mexico is the 10th richest nation on Earth, with a rich, state-owned oil and minerals monopoly, state-owned tourist beaches, the world's richest man, Carlos Slim Helú, and receiving $25 billion annually in "remittances" - cash sent back from its illegals who work (and collect welfare) in the U.S. It is a prosperous nation with only a 5% unemployment rate (vs. 8.2% for the U.S.). And its racist government exports its poorest (and brownest) citizens here, mostly to California, to mooch off of U.S. taxpayers.
And yet California continues to elect politicians who cater to illegal aliens, and continue burning billions every year to take care of Mexico's unwanted working poor - costing California an estimated $21.8 billion a year, according to our friends at FAIR.
Had enough, California? Well apparently many have: according to a recent study, 225,000 Californians are fleeing the state each year, stripping the state of billions in critical income, as residents move to illegal alien-crackdown states like Arizona, which has received $400 million per year of that income.
Californians have a choice: take back your state, or watch it destroy itself on the altar of political correctness as the outsourced welfare state of Mexico - as their government laughs at what chumps you are.
If YOU stand against illegal immigration and want to see the border secured, the rule of law upheld and amnesty for illegals stopped, then put your name where your heart is, and join the 160,000 who have signed our petition at the link below
It’s worse than that. They make up a large part of the California Community College enrollment. In order to justify their existence those institutions actively seek out illegals to fill their classrooms.
On line petitions are a joke, about as worthwhile as on line polls.
If we stop subsidizing them left and right and telling them they are entitled to it they will leave. Crap, people.
And the Democrats are the Underwear Gnomes...............
Freedom is being replaced by the freebie. The wealth of the producer is being siphoned off to the unproductive. Progressivism is the cancer of the host.
Bush did nothing, too. The least they could do is collect taxes by making them citizens. They replace the aborted.
This is govt fraud on a massiver scasle——among a list of multiple crimes being committed here.
The SEC, FBI and IRS should be alerted to tax-free municipal bond revenue being used illegally.
This demands multiple investigations by the FBI, the US Postal Inspection Service,the IRS’ Criminal Investigation Division........and so on.
Social Justice unfolding. This is what Obama’s anti-colonialism looks like.
THIS JUST IN: Obama's winning campaign slogan:
"The world owes you a living...no matter how lazy, dumb, slovenly, drunk, drug-addicted...no matter how many convictions for distribution/possesion, armed robbery, domestic violence, murder and mayhem, no matter how many screwups, jobs lost, kids abandoned."
"The world owes you a living and Obama's gonna make sure US taxpayers pay for it."
I wonder how much money has been spent on Calif Dreamact so far ?
