I grew up near Giddings and we never had any problem with the Mexicans. Most if not all assimilated and learned English before they started school. We had two Hispanic girls (one in my class) from the same family that were valedictorians.
We spend most of our money in Cedar Park and Leander. Gas is usually $.10 - .15 cheaper in those cities than Austin. I hate Austin traffic anyway, but have to deal with it four days a week.

There are some good things about being retired—LOL! Not having to get in rush hour traffic is one of them!

The Mexican (American) kids I grew up with were not the same kids I taught several years ago in TX schools tho. They were not much different than I was. The news kids coming in come from less educated families, with a totally different attitude. Lots of my friends from back then had Dads who owned businesses. They would have slapped their kids silly if they even thought of being gang bangers.
