You may well be correct on all counts; I don't know. I do, however, think it's odd that there are no numbers commonly associated with illegal immigrants except the oft-quoted figure of 12m as their population. I read the other day that Texas has over 800,000 public-school students who are in some kind of ESL classes. Certainly not all of those are the children of illegal immigrants, but if even half were, the cost would approach $4b annually.
Rarely does a political party issue a document so scathingly critical of itself and its most recent presidential nominee as the report of the five-member Growth and Opportunity Project of the Republican National Committee.

It refers to Mitt Romney on occasion as "our presidential nominee" and notes disapprovingly of his reference, in the debate about immigration, to "self-deportation."

And while the report states modestly, "We are not a policy committee," it does call for a policy -- "comprehensive immigration reform" -- that many, perhaps most, Republican members of Congress oppose.

I think there's some risk here for the Republican National Committee....
