Same here. What changes are you seeing though over the last 20 or so years, John? Are people assimilating into "American culture," or are they bringing their own culture here and making the area an extension of their former homes?

By and large I believe they are trying to assimilating into "American culture". That is the ones who desire to become Americans of the USA. There are still an awful amount of illegal aliens around that have labor jobs where only the straw boss knows a little English. Just hire a company to put a new roof on your house. Most Mexicans here do try to have their children learn English. Have observed them talking to their children in accented English and the children answering without a heavy or no Spanish accent. There is always a poor side of town (like other US cities) that have some Mexican run down style houses. Since our city is 58% Hispanic, a lot of Spanish is spoken, but every business establishment will speak English to a Gringo. Our Mayor, majority of the City Council, and much of the city/county government workers are Mexican American. Sometimes there is corruption/bribes like in Mexico, but is quickly done away or prosecuted when discovered. I have lived around here more then 60 years and really the Gringo's and Mexican Americans get along pretty dang good. There are some bias and racial Mexican Americans who are constantly bringing up race and crap like they are not getting enough free handouts as the African Americans and relish in the minority status for preferential treatment. Heck, I do remember in the 1940's there was absolutely no seperate facilities at all for Hispanics or Mexicans and they were not treated like African Americans.
