Bankrupt California Spends $10.5 Billion a Year on Illegal Aliens!
By: John Lillpop
On January 10, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger formally declared that the great state of California is in a fiscal emergency. At the time of the governor’s declaration, the cumulative state deficit was estimated to be $14.5 billion dollars.
Since then, the Legislative Analysts Office has revised the deficit upwards to $16 billion. Clearly, California needs to rein in out-of-control spending, and do so quickly.
Until now, the governor and the legislature have all but ignored the fact that California spends as much as $10.5 billion a year on state-funded programs that support illegal aliens.
In other words, California taxpayers have been driven to bankruptcy by legislators who spend billions of dollars on people who should not even be in America, much less feeding at the public trough.
There is good news, however. Namely, Assemblywoman Audra Strickland, R-Westlake Village, who represents the 37th Assembly District, has authored two measures that will end state taxpayer-funded benefits to illegal immigrants â€“ AB3x 20 and its companion bill ACA 14.
Assemblywoman Strictland’s bills would force legislators to assume fiduciary responsibility and some common sense when it comes to spending taxpayer money.
Both of Assemblywoman Strictland’s bills should be enacted into law as soon as possible.
