LA made $1.3B in illegal immigrant welfare payouts in just 2 years

Illegal immigrant families received nearly $1.3 billion in Los Angeles County welfare money during 2015 and 2016, nearly one-​quarter of the amount spent on the county’s entire needy population, according to data obtained by Fox News.

The data was obtained from the county Department of Public Social Services -- which is responsible for doling out the benefits -- and gives a snapshot of the financial costs associated with sanctuary and related policies.

The sanctuary county of Los Angeles is an illegal immigration epicenter, with the largest concentration of any county ​in the nation, according to a study from the Migration Policy Institute. ​The county also allows illegal immigrant parents with children born in the United States to seek welfare and food stamp benefits.

Robert Rector, a Heritage Foundation senior fellow who has written extensive studies on poverty and illegal immigration, said the costs represent “the tip of the iceberg.”

And why does the American taxpayer give welfare to any illegal immigrant?

I still say if they are not citizens of the U.S. they should get NO benefits. Am I the only one that thinks the Constitution and any other rights in this country should only apply to American citizens. Illegals should have no rights or benefits as long as they are still illegally in this country. Those rights and benefits should only be for Americans. Period.

In Los Angeles these people are not illegal immigrants.
They are merely undocumented immigrants.
Therefore, the survey is incorrect in its findings.

As hard as so many of their taxpayers work, I'm surprised there isn't a LOT more anger at their money going to people who are, first, criminals, and do not belong here.
They pay for their housing, food, medical care,, they give them licenses (!!), and spend MILLIONS on translation services and "help" (!!). I guess, since it's working so good in Germany, they want to give it a spin here, too. It's unreal.
I suppose they don't complain too much when they discover ghost employees on the state payroll.
It's THEIR money. It's also their vote.
Going broke by millions a week, despite being taxed like English serfs. Being overwhelmed by illegal immigrants.
They seem, curiously, to LIKE it.
They NEED to start the hanging.
To all of California ---
Keep cheering!
