LA County Welfare, Food Stamp Payouts [to the invaders] Total $153M In Early 2014

Welfare and food stamp benefits totaling $153 million were issued to illegal immigrant parents for their native-born children during the first quarter of 2014, officials said Tuesday.

The total benefits distributed consisted of $56 million in CalWORKs payments and $97 million in CalFresh funds, with spending on on pace to surpass $600 million for the year, according to the Los Angeles County Department of Public Social Services.

Supervisor Michael Antonovich told KNX 1070 NEWSRADIO over 20 percent of county public welfare funds were spent on illegal immigrants.

“With $550 million for public safety and nearly $500 million on healthcare – in addition to the hundreds of millions spent on education – the total cost for illegal immigrants to County taxpayers is nearly $2 billion dollars a year,” Antonovich said in a statement.

If accurate, the projected pace of $600 million in spending would equal the amount paid out to illegal alien parents in 2010.

Antonovich’s announcement coincided with the release of a UCLA study that found undocumented immigrants in California visit the doctor and emergency rooms significantly less often than U.S. citizens and documented immigrants.

Researchers found one in five U.S.-born adults visits the ER annually, compared with roughly one in 10 undocumented adults — approximately half the rate of U.S.-born residents.

The study also found that undocumented immigrants’ average number of doctor visits per year was lower: 2.3 for children and 1.7 for adults, compared with 2.8 doctor visits for U.S.-born children and 3.2 for adults.

We all know that the money isn’t going back into the local economy, either.

20 per cent sounds way low, but I’m 2000 miles away.

I do know if you visit any maternity hospital these days, you’ll quickly conclude that not many Republicans are being born, but the Republicans are paying for most of those Democrats that are being born.

Where is it written that children born to illegals become citizens? Isn’t it about time someone changed that?

And add the cost of educating their children at $8k/yr per unit and we might be talking about substantial money.

Not to mention the cost of Medical/Dental...

Should we go into the Moral Hazards?

Good pic, though the demographic differences are glossed over...scatter some women’s hair and darker skin on the passengers for a better depiction...
