Welfare payments to children of illegal immigrants in Los Angeles County increased in July to $52 million, prompting renewed calls from one county supervisor to rein in public benefits to such families.
The payments, made to illegal immigrants for their U.S. citizen children, included $30 million in food stamps and $22 million from the CalWORKS welfare program, according to Los Angeles County figures released Friday by Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich.

You are paying for your STUPIDITY! What else do you expect when you provide sanctuary for a large group of lawbreakers == their dependents will flock to your sanctuary and you will have to provide for their medical, financial, and social welfare.
DON'T COMPLAIN... YOU BROUGHT IT ON YOURSELVES -- YOU IDIOTS !

Illegals and their children (whether they are born here or not)...should NOT get any kind of public assistance!
These people came here illegally....brought or produced children here...they need to go back to their home country and work their benefit system.
The laws in this country regarding children born in this country need to be changed. If your mother is not a citizen..you are not a citizen. A baby should have the citizenship of their mother! No more "anchor babies".
Illegals and their children are breaking the financial back of this country. Schools, hospitals, welfare, section 8...and whatever other social program they seem to know about. Funny they know the system better than the citizens!
Sometimes, we as Latinos are our own enemy !
