LOS ANGELES, Calif. (KTLA) The children of undocumented immigrants cost Los Angeles County more than $54 Million in April, Supervisor Mike Antonovich announced Friday.

In a press release, Antonovich said that the tally came from figures provided by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Social Services (DPSS).

The DPSS estimated that the county provided $54 million in assistance to the children of undocumented immigrants, consisting of about $20 million in CalWORKs (welfare) and $35 million in food stamps.

The $20 million dollar figure represented about 20% of all CalWORKs issuances in the County, the report said.

The DPSS projected undocumented immigrant parents would receive approximately $650 million in assistance in 2013.
