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 year’s projections — u

Undocumented LA County Parents On Pace To Receive $650M In Welfare Benefits

Why do we allow things like this to keep happening? Just one of the many reasons that state is broke. We as a country can not sustain this level of money going out to people who abuse our generosity.

Certain political groups will do anything for votes.....even let our country be invaded by illegal aliens. Why do you think the voter ID issues were such a big stink. They know there are at least 15-20 million votes they can swing their way by just providing a little GOV assistance for a vote.

IT would be racist to not let it happen


Regardless, it's happening in almost every state in the nation. As long as the politicians and figure heads keep their pockets fat, they don't care. It's all part of the bigger plan, They're waiting for the Country to break apart from the inside out. After that, everything will be easier for them.

You know, I was prepared to believe that we were talking about a single illegal alien couple here. That's how inept the welfare system is, it wouldn't surprise me.



Relieved as I am, suffice it to say, I am not happy. Nor should any of us be and I can guarantee that there are those who see these numbers and say 'whoopie!'.

To those people, please consider the implications of this carefully.

Join the citizens of this country and defend us, otherwise you must recognize that you are choosing to work against the best interests of us, the american people. This is not a game, you are not winning.

Race I don't think is the real issue or even an underlying issue. Anyone who has been slated as down and out of the perpetual slave system known as capitalism; their wages are below minimum wage so therefore they can gain social benefits.

The politicians aren't in the biz of making the constituents happy - they live with an oligarchy system not a democracy. If these people weren't forced to live a lesser life than what they have in their impoverished country, none would seek refuge. Which brings me to my point that they seem to more of a refugee than an undocumented worker. Don't blame the players - blame the game.

I can't go to the UK and expect without someone propping up funds in the tune of $19k to allow me to live their. Otherwise I could go but NONE of the benefits of their socialist monarchy would allow me to gain access to their government/civil/social services infrastructure.

I agree with you regarding the 'system' what is left of it anyway; they are seeking the Cloward & Pevin strategy. Top down bottom up. en.wikipedia.org...

I had a friend that came from Jamaica in the 60's to America.


They make him sign documents that he swore he would never collect any sort of welfare.

Things have changed haven't they?

So those against the welfare system would like to go back to the days when the rich pointed and laughed at the poor, avoided them in the street and or turn their nose at them? seriously i get its a problem but pointing the finger at people who need this help is just bullying.

alright so they might be illegal but do you know their story, do you know what they've run from, do you know if they have a disability or not. this is the problem with people on this site for the past few months, all they seem to want to do is bellyache about something and not give any real advice on how to change it.

HERE IS WHAT I WOULD DO IF I WERE IN POWER

Six months help from the government, first three months they pay bills and help stock your fridge and cupboards, following two months help find you training, help try to give you a new skill that you have and or dont have and finally the last month they give you a small grant to help get some nice clean clothes and enough to be descent looking to go for job interviews.

If you fail to follow that then you are punished with refusal to get government aid at all and are left to fend for yourself for a period of time. its that simple in my eyes.

yeah there are people out there who are just scamming the system taking benefits that they dont need or should have but to just bitch and complain on this site or on the TV in the so called fair and balanced media is just pointless. so i give a challenge to my fellow ATS brothers, sisters and everything in between; make your moan and groan about this and then put forward your own solution to the problem without saying the words SEND. THEM. BACK. give a real idea of how this could be solved.

Helping with a child, maybe two. Producing children should not be a money making endeavor. Humans know how babies come about.

Illegal being the key word here. If i do something illegal, i go to jail and get fined, i dont get a slap on the wrist. Besides, there is a LEGAL way to get into this Country. There are millions that can verify that.

If a loved one or close family member of yours was killed or gang raped by an illegal, i guarantee you'd have a different stance on the situation.

At least 30% of these illegals make and hide income that would make them ineligible for this government money.

The state does not have the money to investigate those that are playing the system.

At least 20% of the kids that they get the money for are LA gang members and cost the government even more.

You are right that if my family was gang raped or killed by an illegal of course i would be spitting a different story but that wouldn't be with a straight head, i would be enraged but i guess that's how many Americans seem to work politics then always going with the fists rather than the brain. but again, whether they are illegal or not would you see them on the street, in the poor house begging and pleading so they can feed their starving kids?

All i ask is that you dont bitch and complain about these people until you know their story. its typical of Politicians to ramble on about illegals sucking the country dry but i work with poor and hungry and a large portion are illegal who spent years trying to get into the country legally but never heard back or were constantly told that they were in a cue. but hopefully you dont have to experience some of the hardship that they go through, there was a time when Black people were constantly used to be the boogeyman to get a politician in office but now it goes to the so called Illegal immigrants and one last thing, remember that Americans themselves are immigrants, it was founded on the staple that anyone in the country would be protected by certain rights whether they were born there or not, but once again it seems the ideas of the founding fathers are nick-picked by people.

Like I said, all im asking for is to have a little compassion and do what so many of you on ATS claim to do and listen to their story first before you bow to the first king of America (Obama) and shake your fists in the air and brandish all illegals as money hungry blood suckers. remember what i said, at one time or another somewhere down your family bloodline immigrants are there.

Can they vote? The answer to that question is why this is allowed without a fight from left wing politicians.

ILLEGAL immigrants have successfully pulled off the BIGGEST shaft job of Californians.

1. flooded and dilapidated the schools and hospitals
2. pushed the wages of darn near every field to HALF what it was 10-15 yrs ago!
3. Completely obliterated the jobs students used to do (mow lawns, bag groceries, etc)
4. By their shear presence have put upward pressure on housing costs-- supply v. demand.


And since they are 'paperless'.. they get the welfare GOODS and the guy WORKS..

cuts the pay an American would have gotten., let alone the actual job.

And is able to live OK on that wage because the wife is using another last name and raking in the dole hand over fist,

THEN the kids grow up, get free tutors, special sized classes, free college, AND --HERE IS THE KICKER!!!

thanks to affirmative action.. will get PREFERENCE over a lower class American white kid!!

FFS..

I MUST be racist now

IMMIGRANTS are SCABS... unions would have never existed had illegals been free to run rampant back then,

ASK YOURSELF.... what changed?.... how did the USA towns "keep it local"...

Immigrants are like a squatter taking up residence in your back yard.
1. he didn't lose generations of family in wars (therefore a MOOCH)
2. competes for OUR jobs that OUR ancestors FOUGHT and DIED for!! FFS.. I AM RACIST I guess!!!
3. and the SLAP... not only taking huge portions of jobs!! but LOWERING -----> EVERYONES PAY..

its like a parasite... sure it has a right to live,,,

but at whose expense?

the solution is to deal with the number one problem... armed thugs that:

1. swat raid protest organizers before the protest
2. enforce "free speech zones"

ffs..

those 2 reasons alone are the prime factor preventing CHANGE..

R E D C O A T S !!

read some books and compare.

I can bitch and complain all I want. Without a family member of mine, I'd be homeless right now and I don't get the government handouts that these people, here illegally do, so I do empathize with few of them. I have two children BTW and I don't do anything illegal to get me by.. Also, If do something illegal, I get reprimanded. Like I said, there is a legal way to come here, millions with families do it. Most of the illegals come across to take advantage of the system, because they all know it can be played!! Trust me, if no one knew the system could be played, would there be 11-20Million illegals here? I doubt it.

Why is this a negative article?? The children who are receiving the intended funds are US CITIZENS. Did anyone even read??? They are entitled to the same benefits you or I could expect. Just because the mother is not a citizen doesn't negate the rights of the children who ARE US Citizens.. Anyone who has a problem with this is a complete as$hat.

They are citizens because of a loophole that was taken advantage of, knowingly taken advantage of.
Once my kids get a free education and this and that, only then will I give it a rest.

So, yes, I am complete Sh#t. But, walk a mile in my shoes.

Is public school free?? I know two brothers who just graduated high school whose mother is not legal. They received straight A's at the top of their class all through high school but they would have to pay out of state tuition costs to go to the state university, $26,000, vs In state tuition costs, $6,000, even though they were both born in the USA. I didn't experience them getting any special treatment, grants, handouts.. In fact I find it to be a complete waste of two highly intelligent people. Neither of them got into drugs or partying and studied their asses off, took school very seriously, and graduated with top grades only to find themselves no better off than a best buy retail clerk when most likely they would have excelled through a top university into an important role. What a waste of good brains..

Now people understand why illegal immigrants waste no time to reproduce like rabbits in the US, the more "American children" they have the more the welfare ride without moving a finger to earn a living.

This why the working productive class in this nation is been run dry by the parasite class.

And yes I am been mean, the parasite class is those that do not have any desire to earn and income but want everything free.

For anybody to get a free ride into the government system somebody else have to work their butt off and give away their hard earned dollars to the government when paying taxes.

That is the reality of how the welfare system works, the money is not free the money is not created by the government is money that has been earned by somebody else.
