Wow. 0.35% of our annual deficit. Whatever.

I know it doesn't make it right, but relative to the HUNDREDS OF BILLIONS being spent by America's own government to spy on the 99.7% of us who are normal, law abiding people, this little drip of money is not even noteworthy.

I used to be anti-illegal immigration. I still am in principle, as long as there is a socialist wealth transfer state, same as wrong Paul who believes and states that a nation has a right to be sovereign and own and protect its own borders.

However, in comparison to the wars and the spying and the general waste, this is NOTHING. N O T H I N G.

So, just putting it in perspective.

0.35% ?

But this is just the LA county. If we add more tens of hundreds of cities to the list, it could be close to 3.5 or 5%

Good point.

So, we should ignore the trillion/year spent on foreign wars and the 500,000,000,000 spent per year spying on Americans and worry about food stamps.


So there are Aleins

and the Gov has made Aliens illegal now?

I wonder what planet or area of space these Aliens come from?


Welfare benefits are the

Welfare benefits are the primary cause for increased illegal immigration. The government only encourages the illegal immigration.

If these people are left to support themselves, then that would show how real 'The US is the land of opportunity' is?


many USA citizens have lost their jobs and live in tent cities or cars...

Yes, it is not the government's job to be our nanny/parent--BUT--if money is going to be spent, then I say spend it on USA citizens, not illegals, not foreign aid, not some stupid study to ascertain that women prefer dating thin, hot, rich men as opposed to fat, ugly, poor ones, etc.

Good find

Sick of my tax money going for this kind of trash


I can't believe the government would spend that much on illegals...don't they realize how many smart bombs and drones they could fly for that amount? (Sarcasm, ya'll).
