Los Angeles County Supervisor Mike Antonovich has extracted this data: Report: One-fourth of welfare payments go to illegals Daily Breeze.com 03/10/2010
Nearly one-quarter of state welfare payments and food stamps issued in Los Angeles County go to children whose parents are in the U.S. illegally, according to January figures released todayâ€¦more than $50 million in CalWORKS benefits and food stamps for January went to children born in the United States whose parents are in the country without documentation... "When you add this to $350 million for public safety and nearly $500 million for health care, the total cost for illegal immigrants to county taxpayers far exceeds $1 billion a year — not including the millions of dollars for education," Antonovich said.
Google News indicates that apart from one other story in a minor outlet, none of the Los Angeles area MSM felt this news fit to print. The two that did have a combined circulation of some 80,000.
Applaud Antonovich. (Heâ€™s probably pretty lonely.)
P.S. I see Digger's Realm has done a nice job of number crunching based on Antonivich's discoveries.
