The trick is to have a low-income but legal family member sponsor the immigrants through family sponsorship. The family members aren't expected to provide a thing for their immigrant, the only thing is that the sponsor's income is included with the immigrant's income when the immigrant applies for the means tested benefits. If the sponsor earns little, and the immigrant earns little or nothing, the immigrant qualifies for government assistance.
where are the numbers on this "theory"? What agency would even track that number? How could number even be known?

You make a valid point. Why don't they track statistics on illegals better than they do?
For example if you look up crime statistics they will indicate Type of crime, male, female, race etc. Why not legal statis? Could it be they don't want the public to understand the level of crime committed by these honest hard working people?
