Who disaproved her statements and where did she say that it didn't take into account what cities and counties were paying to support illegal immigrants?

None of it was true and it all came out when she was running for governer, she was just trying to get the hispanic vote and it didn't work...

They shut down the streets last year protesting w/ their march. And they actually get away w/ it. They don't pay taxes, get away w/ it, come into our country illegally, get away w/ it. I'm getting frustrated.

She said it right here:

Quote:
“This is the first time any state has done a comprehensive financial analysis of the impact of undocumented immigrants on a state’s budget and economy, looking at gross state product, revenues generated, taxes paid and the cost of state services.
“The absence of the estimated 1.4 million undocumented immigrants in Texas in fiscal 2005 would have been a loss to our gross state product of $17.7 billion. Undocumented immigrants produced $1.58 billion in state revenues, which exceeded the $1.16 billion in state services they received. However, local governments bore the burden of $1.44 billion in uncompensated health care costs and local law enforcement costs not paid for by the state.”
— Carole Keeton Strayhorn, Texas Comptroller
