One Third of US Welfare Payments Go to CA, 22% of Federal Prisoners are “Foreign Born,” Cost $1.3 billion Every Year

Corporate profits at California-based transnational corporations such as Apple, Facebook and Google are hitting record highs.

California housing prices from La Jolla to Berkeley along the Pacific Coast can top $1,000 a square foot.

It seems as if all of China is willing to pay premium prices to get their children degreed at Caltech, Berkeley, Stanford, UCLA or USC.

Yet California — after raising its top income tax rate to 13.3 percent and receiving record revenues — is still facing a budget deficit of more than $1 billion. There is a much more foreboding state crisis of unfunded liabilities and pension obligations of nearly $1 trillion.

Soon, new gas tax hikes, on top of green mandates, might make California gas the most expensive in the nation, despite the state’s huge reserves of untapped oil.

Where does the money go, given that the state’s schools and infrastructure rank among America’s worst in national surveys?

Illegal immigration over the last 30 years, the exodus of millions of middle-class Californians, and huge wealth concentrated in the L.A. basin and Silicon Valley have turned the state into a medieval manor of knights and peasants, with ever fewer in between.

Sanctuary state. Stop all federal funding!

22% Of Federal Prisoners Are “Foreign Born,” Cost $1.3 Billion Every Year

 

At least 22 percent of all federal inmates in the U.S. are nonwhite illegal immigrants from central and South America, and cost the American taxpayers a minimum of $1.3 billion every year, new figures from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) have revealed.
According to a DHS statement, some 22 percent of all federal inmates are “illegal immigrants” and virtually all are in deportation proceedings.
The Justice Department’s Bureau of Prisons, fulfilling a presidential executive order requiring transparency on prisoner immigration status, said that it houses 187,855 inmates of which 42,034 are foreign born.
The DHS report said that only seven of those 42,034 have been granted deportation “relief.” According to DHS:
19,749 (46.9 percent) are aliens who have received final orders of removal.
21,121 (50.2 percent) are aliens who are under ICE investigation for possible removal.
1,157 (2.8 percent) are aliens whose cases are pending adjudication before an Immigration Judge in the Executive Office of Immigration Review (EOIR).
7 (.0002 percent) are aliens who have been granted relief.
