Obama Can't Save California
New Budget Makes Problems Worse
Fresno Bee -- February 15   
Obama budget offers pain to California
    Washington -- Californians would face some familiar-looking budget cuts under the Obama administration $3.7 trillion spending plan that was unveiled to tepid reviews Monday.
    The Fiscal 2012 budget shrinks police grants, slashes reimbursements for imprisoning criminal aliens and puts some farmers on a modest financial diet. It does little to explicitly help California dig itself out of its own massive budget hole.

The Cost of Illegal Immigration to Californians
    Analysis of the latest Census data indicates that California's illegal immigrant population is costing the state's taxpayers more than $10.5 billion per year for education, medical care and incarceration. Even if the estimated tax contributions of illegal immigrant workers are subtracted, net outlays still amount to nearly $9 billion per year. The annual fiscal burden from those three areas of state expenditures amounts to about $1,183 per household headed by a native-born resident. [...]
    The fiscal costs of illegal immigration do not end with these three major cost areas. The total costs of illegal immigration to the state's taxpayers would be considerably higher if other cost areas such as special English instruction, school feeding programs, or welfare benefits for American workers displaced by illegal alien workers were added into the equation.
