That self-inflicted state budget issue Arnerich spoke of is called illegal immigrant benefits, which single-handedly has robbed California's coffers. End said benefits now and we'll have no budget problems.
Illegal immigrant benefits need to end NOW -- The key word in the sentence is that they are ILLEGAL -- does anyone pay attention to that fact?
Let's get real here. Per the LA Times "California should be honest about the costs. Illegal immigrants are not the sole cause of the state's deficit. But they are a drain."
State costs related to illegal immigrants are about $5 billion, which is a significant portion of, but not a solution to a $42 billion deficit.
But then, Rick and Gary, who would mow your lawn?
State costs related to illegal immigrants I believe are upwards of ten billion a year, with that being on the low side, being that there's probably far more illegals here than the understated analysts guess. Thus, get rid of illegal immigrant benefits and in about four years our budget will be secured. And I mow my lawn and I recommend more people get off their butts and do work around the house, especially you men. And, if you must have gardeners, be willing to pay them even more, for though it seems like a lot, those guys are usually not making much per person. Pay them more and you'll have citizens of this country happy to work those jobs.
