Many Texans around here prospered by allowing illegals to come and work. They kept a very low profile, and didn’t dare try to “milk” the system, they knew they would be deported. What has happened is the feds have unleashed the illegals on us, and they know they can get freebies now, with almost no chance of deportation.The arrangement as it was was good for Texas, and good for the Mexicans who really wanted to work. The low wages they were paid here bought lots in Mexico. Another case of the Fed Gov. screwing up the balance in Texas.Another reason we need to get out.

So Texans tolerated illegals? How was that better than the current system? (I am not being facetious, BTW). It seems from what I read that the border agents were fairly active in seeking out illegals (in the 50s anyways) but many ranchers helped hide them. What changed?
