From the Paper:

"The Republican National Committee began in June to run a television advertisement in California and 17 other states regarding the costs of illegal immigration. Democrats claimed the ad, based on a 1991 Backgrounder by the Center for Immigration Studies, contained a "blatant and demonstrable falsehood." The controversy is centered on the audio portion of the ad, which begins "Did you know there are over five million illegal immigrants in the U.S.? And that you spend five-and-a-half billion dollars a year to support them with welfare, food stamps, and other services." The cost figure is from "Estimated Annual Costs of Major Federal and State Services to Illegal Aliens" (Center for Immigration Studies Backgrounder 2-91), one of the first attempts to quantify the fiscal cost of illegal immigration. The paper estimated that the total cost of 13 major federal and state services to illegal aliens in 1990 was $5.5 billion. (This is a gross number; i.e., it does not attempt to balance fiscal costs with taxes paid by illegal aliens. Even in net terms, however, illegal aliens are acknowledged by all immigration researchers to be a drain on the public coffers.)"
