There are many jobs that native Americans who speak English just can't do well at, if at all. This is a business reality. In many areas of the state, government business is conducted in Spanish.

There is a general lack of respect for the environment, for example they ignore it when their kids litter. What we consider a trashy, blighted area they tolerate because it is an improvement over the old country. Texas is worse off for all these things.

As for the politics of it all, I'm not convinced that catering to illegal aliens who snuck into the country and have no interest in assimilating is all that popular among the locals who happen to be of Mexican ancestry.
correct, we are not talking about the Desi Arnez's or the Freddie Prinz's, or the Marco Rubios, we are talking about the Poncho Villas

they wanted the illegals to get out and come here the right way, through the proper channels, with green cards, work visas and the like. You know, not break the law.

As far as I know we weren't talking about illegal immigrants. This is one of the problems the GOP has. Certain people in the party think that Latino means illegal.

By Government mandate every government contract, job and school application asks us our race.

We are bombarded with news stories and census statistics on an almost daily basis.
