Had enough, California? Well apparently many have: according to a recent study, 225,000 Californians are fleeing the state each year, stripping the state of billions in critical income, as residents move to illegal alien-crackdown states like Arizona, which has received $400 million per year of that income.
California is America’s Sanctuary State – and Mexico’s outsourced welfare state.
The Los Angeles County Department of Public Social Services reported that more than $100 million in welfare benefits were issued to illegal alien parents for their native-born children in June and July alone, announced Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich.
The $100 million consists of nearly $40 million in CalWORKs (welfare) and $70 million in food stamps — representing 22% of all CalWORKs and food stamp issuances in the County. At this rate, the projected annual cost is more than $625 million.
“With the $550 million for public safety and nearly $500 million for healthcare, the total cost for illegal immigrants to County taxpayers exceeds $1.6 billion dollars a year,” said Antonovich. “These costs do not include the hundreds of millions of dollars for education.”
So a staggering 22% of ALL welfare payouts for L.A. County go to illegal aliens and their children – more than 90% from Mexico.
