Los Angeles County, the welfare capital of America. It’s also the
illegal alien capital of America:
Why would illegals go back to Mexico in these tough economic times?
They’ve got a great deal here in the USA considering all the welfare
and food stamps we give them. And if anyone complains, they simply

More than two million people mexicans living in Los Angeles County — about 20 percent of the area’s population — receive welfare or other public aid and officials believe more will need help as the recession deepens. part of the article came from a site called Needs of the Many
I know … it’s shocking.
Nationally, illegal aliens are more of a burden on social welfare programs than poor Americans. In fact, illegals use more food stamps than any other group of people in the US, and our government is promoting this travesty. If we could just prevent them from sucking the life-blood out of our welfare system … perhaps we wouldn’t need to constantly hear about how we “need” to spend more on social programs.
LA County Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich has announced that a new report shows illegal aliens and their families in Los Angeles County collected over $35 million in welfare and food stamp allocations in July.
In the report, illegals are said to have collected nearly $20 million in welfare assistance for July 2007 and an additional $15 million in monthly food stamp allocations for an estimated annual cost of $440 million.
“Illegal immigration continues to have a devastating impact on Los Angeles County taxpayers,”said Antonovich. “In addition to $220 million for public safety and $400 million for healthcare, the $440 million in welfare allocations bring the total cost to County taxpayers that exceeds $1 billion a year — this does not include the skyrocketing cost of education.”
The rising demand due to the nation’s sagging economy and a jobless rate that stands at 9.5 percent in Los Angeles County has left public assistance offices ill-equipped to deal with the growing throng of indigent people.
“We have the highest human service burden of any county in the country in sheer numbers,” Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky said. “Two million people is the size of some countries; that’s how big our problem is.”
Officials estimate the number of people on county aid is nearly 2.2 million, which equals the figure at the height of the 2001-03 recession. The total includes people receiving food stamps and general relief as well as other county-administered aid programs, such as in-home health care. The cost to the county, state and federal governments was $334 million a month by the end of last year, according to the latest report by the county’s Department of Public Social Services.
The sharpest spikes in need have been in the Pomona Valley, the Lancaster area, the San Fernando Valley and East Los Angeles.
County officials are also worried that there won’t be enough money to help people. Property tax revenue, usually stable, is shrinking for the first time in 13 years.
Although the federal government is seeking to increase food stamp and unemployment insurance benefits, programs that are wholly funded by the county remain static.
