Being so close to the boarder, how rapid is the Mexican population growing in the South? Will there be a year sometime relatively soon when the south is predominantly Mexican?

those areas are not becoming, they already are. Even the south east are rapidly developing latino populations. The research triangle gained over 700 000 hispanics in the last 15 years

EDIT: If the OP is referring to the Southwest, then this entire thread is kind of pointless.

As of 2008 in the following southern metros, Mexicans made up...

San Antonio 48.2% -> 53.2%
Houston 26.6% -> 34%
Austin 23.7% -> 30.2%
Dallas 23.6% -> 27.5%
Atlanta 5.9% -> 9.6%
Raleigh 5.7% -> 9.1%
Charlotte 4.5% -> 8.9%
Nashville 3.6% -> 5.5%
Tampa 3.1% -> 14.6%
Memphis 2.8% -> 3.9%
Orlando 2.7% -> 23%
Miami 2.6% -> 39.6%
Birmingham 2.5% -> 3.3%
New Orleans 1.4% -> 6.3%
Jacksonville 1.3% -> 5.9%
American FactFinder

The bold % is the total % of Hispanics in that metro.
Outside of Texas it appears that Mexicans prefer the piedmont, but the numbers are nowhere near those in Texas.

Louisiana is the only other state in that group who's Mexican population doesn't make up the majority of it's Hispanic population, but the it was a small percentage to begin with. Same with the metros, NOLA was 6% Hispanic, but only 1% Mexican.
