Illegal Alien Anchor Babies Cost LA $600 Milln, Last Year

By Debbie Schlussel

Whenever illegal alien and open borders supporters ask you if you’re ready to pay ten bucks for a head of lettuce to deport the 20 million illegals on our shores, tell them you’re already paying $50 . . . minus the lettuce.  As we all know, the hidden costs of illegal aliens aren’t so hidden.  You’re paying for them every day, whether it’s welfare for illegal aliens or Medicaid or something else.


Last year in Los Angeles County alone, the anchor babies of illegal aliens cost taxpayers a whopping $600 million just in welfare costs.  That doesn’t include public schools, bi-lingual translators and teachers, etc.  And it doesn’t include the costs their illegal alien parents cause by sucking from the teat of America.

Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael Antonovich released new statistics this week showing social spending for those families in his county rose to $53 million in November, putting the county government on track to spend more than $600 million on related costs for the year — up from $570 million in 2009.

Antonovich arrived at the estimate by factoring in the cost of food stamps and welfare-style benefits through a state program known as CalWORKS. Combined with public safety costs and health care costs, the official claimed the “total cost for illegal immigrants to county taxpayers” was more than $1.6 billion in 2010.

“Not including the hundreds of millions of dollars for education,” he said in a statement. . . .

“The problem is illegal immigration. … Their parents evidently immigrated here in order to get on social services,” Antonovich spokesman Tony Bell said. “We can no longer afford to be HMO to the world.”

Oh, really? Get ready for ObamaCare to get into full swing.

He said the state should cut back on these social benefits. According to the November statistics, that cost accounted for 22 percent of all food stamp and CalWORKS spending in the county.

That means almost one in every four Californians soaking up food stamps and welfare spending in the granola state are the kids of illegal aliens. And that’s just in California. I wonder how many hundreds of millions the Muslim anchor babies in Michigan, specifically in Wayne County, cost taxpayers. A good deal, you can bet. Nationwide, your paying more than your (un)fair share for these kids of illegals:

The Federation for American Immigration Reform also looked at these kinds of costs nationwide to get an idea of the burden to local governments. . . .

The organization reported that the cost of illegal immigration stands at about $113 billion a year. Nearly half of that amount went toward education costs, according to the study. Costs were naturally higher in states with large illegal immigrant populations — in California, the total annual cost was pegged at $21.8 billion.

Like I said, you’re already paying far more than $10 for a head of lettuce. And you’re not even getting the lettuce. Someone else–someone who is here illegally and the kids they had to stay here–is.

Californians have discarded common sense, thus, they suffer.

    We all suffer…

    James Phillips on March 12, 2011 at 4:41 pm

We have lost our sense of survival.

This is the end of our society, brought to you by crooked politicians pandering for votes from these third world pagans that crawled out from under rocks in their own country to invade ours.

Go the LA County Health Department website. You will see the following (paraphrase) one in every 25 children born in America are born to mothers in LA County, approximately half to undocumented mothers….

I recall that several years ago the LA Times published
county data that showed illegal aliens cost LA county
350 million a year. That was just one county, out of 58.
Think what it cost the entire state then and what it costs

And no one does anything about it…either party. Jerry
Brown is back in Sacramento…he’ll give illegal aliens
in-state tuition and perpetuate the outrage.

As long as the open borders crowd and their enablers
whine about the poor illegals who only want to better
themselves, and our cowardly politicians look the other
way we will continue to decline.

Would that we were like Australia…completely surrounded
by shark-infested water.

I’m surprised we haven’t heard of Antonovich getting hung in effigy yet.lol

You know how tolerant the left can be.

samurai on January 20, 2011 at 6:06 pm

And yet California is ground zero for the lunatic left. NO BAIL OUT! The entire state is a “sanctuary city” LA has done nothing to discourage illegal immigration or support any the most meager of ICE enforcement measures.

Bonzer Wolf on January 20, 2011 at 7:58 pm

California was the Golden State, but now it has become the Golden Shower State-this is the attitude of the whores on the left towards the taxpayers, property owners, entrepreneurs, and conservatives who love life and liberty. Except for the population centers around L. A., the Bay Area and Sacramento this is actually a red state. Tragically it is being run into the toilet by public unions supported by ‘guvment ejukated’ voters who have been taught to believe that they’re entitled to whatever they want without having to earn it. HEEEEEEELP!!!!

T. Y. on January 20, 2011 at 8:19 pm

And they don’t call it ‘food stamps’ any longer. The program is now called “Cal-Fresh”. Sounds so much more healthy, doesn’t it?

#1 Vato on January 20, 2011 at 10:15 pm

Does any one really believe that the cost is a mere $.6B? How naive can one get. The real figure must be in the billions. Hardly anyone in the entire county speaks English without an accent. And they all have a game plan that does not include the betterment of America. That is obvious.

pat on January 20, 2011 at 10:56 pm

wow! and I thought NY sucked egg.
The new Gov seems like he’s actually trying to save the state.
Or maybe he’s trying to become the next most hated man since blind man Patterson….who knows…
…we’ll see. I ain’t holding my breath.

Nationwide, you’re paying more than your (un)fair share for these kids of illegals:

Miranda Rose Smith on January 21, 2011 at 2:35 am

    And, of course, the DREAM act would allow instate tuition for these ILLEGALS. As someone who paid out of state tuition for medical school, and watched by tuition go from $1400 to 14,400 in 3 years (bill passed after my Freshman year, medical schools do not allow transfer for financial reasons) as an out of stater in Texas, and someone who also adopted two lovely children from Guatemala, having my ass sniffed all the way for the atrocity of wanting to adopt a kid, I’m a bit peeved at the Dhimmicrats. At least my Representative, Oberstar, that terrorist supporting bag of vermin laden Dhimmicratic garbage, got voted out.

Take Action – Contact your local representative and express your concerns for H.R.140


I think it’s interesting, but not surprising, to look at the groups against this this….

American Civil Liberties Union
Arab American Institute
Asian American Justice Center
America’s Voice

It’s amazing how bigoted you are, and how loud you cry when the offense is against israel or jewish people. If you made a thought experiment and pretended for a second that the whole latin america is part of israel, would you care so much about the money spent on welfare? Sure, it costs 600 million dollars to take care of the people that are actually working and doing things for the country… but it costs the U.S. 3 billion a year, in MILITARY aid to israel. So, you’re fine with the U.S. giving 5 times the amount of money spent on welfare to israel, but they’re not sucking on anyone’s “teat” eh? How does that happen?

Martin Romero on January 22, 2011 at 1:01 am

    @Martin – This offense is NOT against Israel or the “Jewish” people, it’s against ALL OF US and she is speaking out against it in this article. What are you getting at? Do you understand the strategic position of Israel in the Middle East? Do you understand that part of (a BIG part) the reason Iran has not been successful in acquiring nuclear weapons, is BECAUSE of Israel? You speak of people working and doing things for the country. What are they “doing” exactly, aside from trying to make us the largest ghetto in the world? Who are your doctors, lawyers, entrepreneurs, inventors, physicists, geologists, medical researchers, biologists? Who is working on cures for disease day and night? And finally, who is delivering these anchor babies safely, and in sanitary conditions? Certainly not illegal immigrants. Israel buys weapons from us, so do a lot of allied countries, and? Listen, we don’t OWE the 3rd world a FUCKING thing – If it weren’t for U.S. led allied forces, we’d be speaking German right now…

    James Phillips on March 12, 2011 at 5:38 pm

Just wait until you become the victim of illegal Mexican or Islamo aggression. You will be eating your words and be down on your knees before Debbie begging for her mercy.

Pat on January 22, 2011 at 1:49 pm

All this talk about illegals being such hard workers is a load of bs. They’ve come here to try and take over after all the works been done. If they’re such hard workers, why don’t they do something about their own country. If our ancestors hadn’t come here and made it what it is, there’s no reason to believe that this part of North America would look any different than the craphole that South America is.
