I usually try to avoid getting involved in these discussions, but I guess I'll go ahead and say this:
>becoming a majority like illegal Mexican immigrants have become in the US
I'm thinking probably most of the hispanic people are citizens, at least around here. South Texas has a large hispanic population (I'm thinking probably a majority), and has had one for some time. I think they are mostly citizens.
Remember that there are the Tejano families who were here from before the Texas revolution (and who supported the rebels). Also, there are numerous Mexican families (including from the "elite") that came over about a century ago, to flee one of the Mexican revolutions. Either way, they've been here a long time.
However, it does seem that there are a lot of more recent immigrants among the oil field workers and/or farm laborers.
>you best have your birth certificate or alien status with you or you are going to jail!
what about innocent until proven guilty?
Please note that these comments are meant to be observations, not political opinions.
I think I've mentioned here before that I am half hispanic. I was born in Floresville, Texas, and am therefore a US citizen. Both of my parents were born in Texas.
