WASHINGTON D.C. - Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich is in Washington, D.C., this week on the Board's annual legislative meeting with members of the California Congressional delegation and federal agencies.

Antonovich will speak with federal officials on the devastating impact illegal immigration continues to have on Los Angeles County.

Annually the cost of illegal immigration to Los Angeles County taxpayers exceeds over one billion dollars, which includes $220 million for public safety, $400 million for healthcare, and $500 million in welfare and food stamp allocations.

Twenty-four percent of the founty's total allotment of welfare and food stamp benefits goes directly to the children of illegal aliens born in the United States.

Illegal immigration continues to have a devastating impact on Los Angeles County taxpayers," said Antonovich. "The total cost for illegal immigrants to county taxpayers exceeds $1 billion a year - not including the millions of dollars for education."
