Los Angeles County paid out $1.3 billion in welfare payments and food stamps in 2015 and 2016 to illegal aliens. It is one-quarter of the money given out to the needy in the county. This is according to data from the county Department of Public Social Services.
LA is a sanctuary county and the officials allow illegals with anchor children to seek welfare and food stamps.
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,” Fox News reported.
He said the costs of education, police and fire, medical, and subsidized housing can total $24,000 per year in government spending per family, much more than would be paid in taxes.
