Re: James Fulford's post San Jacinto Day 2021—Texas Is Still Free Of Mexico After 185 Years

I just saw the post about San Jacinto Day. At the end of the post, there was a line about disloyal Hispanics along the border. I am not so sure about that. There are certainly disloyal Hispanics in Houston, Dallas, and San Antonio (and disloyal Anglos in Austin), but I am not so sure about the border. They could be better classified as Tejanos, and their views on political issues—including immigration—are not that much different than working class whites in Appalachia and the Rustbelt.

The Tejanos in the Rio Grande Valley moved considerably towards Trump in 2020. Trump won Zapata County and nearly won Starr County, which went nearly 80% for Clinton in 2016.

There have always been Hispanics in Texas, and some fought with Davy Crockett and Sam Houston at the Alamo. They fought for the independence of a predominantly white country against an Hispanic nation. There are a lot of minorities who are perfectly content living in a majority white country. Actively working to keep it that way can do a lot more to win minority voters than the typical pandering of the GOP.

Good for them, but they're being overwhelmed demographically.
