GOP presidential candidates Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio and Donald Trump battled for attention a month before the first debate. Readers made their claims the most-read fact-checks of the month.
Donald Trump says he heard there could be 34 million U.S. "illegals."
PANTS ON FIRE, PolitiFact Florida found.
NEW: Pundit correctly says majority of Hispanic residents in the country were born in the U.S.
As of 2012, according to a federal agency, some 11.4 million residents lived in the country without legal authorization. Others put the number between 11 million and 12 million. MORE AHEAD:
Donald Trump claimed that "tremendous infectious disease" is coming across the border. Experts said it’s a dubious claim.
In 2014, we found no substance to a claim John Cornyn dodged the draft.
Did Donald Trump dodge? PolitiFact just lofted a jump ball.

The Republican presidential candidate's disparaging remarks about Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., have renewed questions about Trump's Vietnam draft record.
Real estate tycoon and reality television star Donald Trump carried his legendary reputation for making provocative remarks into his opening foray into the 2016 presidential campaign.
Trump’s comments about illegal Mexican immigrants snagged the spotlight in the already crowded presidential contest and set off political fireworks. Three weeks later, Trump is still fending off criticism for saying Mexico is sending people with drug and criminal problems, even "some rapists," across the border into the United States.
Millions of Americans know Trump from the reality television show "The Apprentice" and its catchphrase "You’re Fired."
He’s also been in and out of the news for decades for his high-profile business ventures, his marital woes and romances, political jabs and trivia spats. Remember his persistence with the birther claim on President Barack Obama? The feud with Rosie O’Donnell?
Some of Trump’s statements have crossed our path. We’ve fact-checked 20 statements, none of which we rated True. We rated two (9 percent) Mostly True, three (14 percent) Half True, 10 (45 percent) False and five (23 percent) Pants on Fire.

Donald Trump announced he was running for president in a lengthy speech that included several inaccurate statements.
New! PolitiFact Sheet: King vs. Burwell
Truthiness was in critical condition at PolitiFact Georgia last week.
Our team published three fact checks in a row on health care. The first from presidential hopeful Herman Cain on CT scans flat-lined. One by U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss of Georgia on Internal Revenue Service agents and the health care overhaul was DOA.
Another by U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius about hospital care survived and is in good condition.
Even on issues outside of health care, truthiness looked at least a little bit puny. A claim by Donald Trump that the U.S. no longer builds bridges needed major surgery, as did a statement by MARTA’s chairman that the transit system is getting safer.
