LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) A projected $650 million in welfare benefits will be distributed to illegal alien parents in 2013, county officials said Monday.
Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich announced the latest figures from the Department of Public Social Services, which showed more than $376 million in CalWORKs benefits and food stamps combined have been distributed through July to illegal alien parents for their native-born children.
Approximately $54 million in welfare payments are issued each month, consisting of nearly $20 million in CalWORKs and $34 million in food stamp issuances, according to the data.
An estimated 100,000 children of 60,000 undocumented parents receive aid in Los Angeles County, according to Antonovich, who said this years projections up about $1 million from the nearly $53 million in total benefits issued in July 2012 underscore the economic impact of the nations immigration debate.
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, Antonovich said in a statement. These costs do not even include the hundreds of millions of dollars spent annually for education.

IN ONLY ONE COUNTY!!
This is a curious article. Is this a county official actually saying this? I’d expect any such comments from a government official to be countered by claims that illegals contribute much more than they receive.
And it’s very strange for a media outlet (and again, a govt official) to actually use the words “illegal aliens” or “illegal immigrants”, instead of “undocumented immigrant”.
What is the rest of Calif paying ???
Antonovich has been fighting this for years. He puts out the numbers for illegals in LA every year. I do believe he is a lone voice though. Too bad.
