LA County Considers $1 Million in Taxpayer Funds to Help Illegals Fight Deportation

Los Angeles County supervisors Janice Hahn and Hilda Solis are asking their colleagues to join them in setting aside $1 million in county funds that can be used to help illegal immigrants fight deportation.

It is estimated that LA County’s illegal immigrant population is over 800,000, and the $1 million in funding would come from taxpayers’ pockets.

According to KPCC, supervisor Hahn’s spokeswoman Liz Odendahl explained that “The idea is to set up the legal fund with $1 million in the first year, then obtain matching funds from public or private donors.” The move is a preemptive one, aimed at short-circuiting President-elect Donald Trump’s pledge “to deport millions of immigrants living in the country illegally.”

Hahn said, “Many immigrants who are facing deportation have a legal avenue to stay in this country, but they are not aware of it because they don’t have legal representation.”

The push to use taxpayer funds to benefit illegal immigrants is not new to California. In 2014 Governor Jerry Brown (D) “authorized about $3 million annually for nonprofit legal services providers to represent unaccompanied minors arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border.”

    That defacto Mexican state led by that idiot governor Moonbeam Brown already is billions of dollars in the hole yet spends 18 billion dollars annually on health care, welfare, wic, food stamps and incarceration of illegal aliens. Meanwhile veterans and homeless veterans in that state are unable to obtain state services in addition to needed to VA health care. Roads, bridges, schools and other parts of that state’s infrastructure are in dire need of attention. Also why the hell should taxpayers be held morally and fiscally responsible for the illegal actions of others? Hopefully a President Trump will address this insanity and return America to the American people.

    LA won’t enforce federal law? Then there’s no reason they should receive any federal funding.

    Let’s give California to Mexico. Then we won’t have to worry about deporting any of their illegal immigrants. Those who are Mexican will no longer be “illegal”. The others will be Mexico’s problem and we know that Mexico has absolutely no problem dealing with people who are in their country illegally. Also, just think of all the federal dollars that will be saved when we no longer have to subsidize California’s public education system and social services.

    There is a great article about what should be done about illegal immigrants and mayors of sanctuary cities going to jail at the article doesn’t pull any punches – hopefully you will comment on it.

    Solution-have the LA board of supervisors each personally kick in their share of funds needed to sponser the legal cost of defending illegals. Saves tax payers. God knows we need those funds to build a train to no-where.

    Just why do these illegals have ANY legal avenue to fight deportation? They have as much a legal avenue as a bank robber has when caught to keep the money and escape any punishment.

  • Rodney Steward says:

    They’re gonna love it when the money is cut off to the Sanctuary city, that’s Unconstitutional anyway!! Stop the funds and free ride, these gutter rats will leave in a heart beat! Poison the water and throw them into the ocean!
