According to the census and other sources there isnt that many undocumented immigrants in San Antonio but there is a large tejano(mexican-american) population, but at least 700 students across the city protested in 2006 for immigration rights, do you think this means that is more illegal aliens in San Antonio or not necessarily?

First, how about a link to this census that indicates that there aren't that many "illegal aliens" in San Antonio. Second, the protests and marches are a combination of illegals and their supporters. My guess it that many of them are their supporters that are either citizens or here legally.

Considering that they were busing people in to these protests, for a city the size of San Antonio, 700 isn't all that high of a number. There are tons of illegals where I live but the protests are often about 200-300 including on-lookers.

But you'll say "big Mexican flags" when there is none as well...
