Thank you for referring to them by illegal immigrants rather than the "undocumented". The more accurate and immigration term for them is illegal aliens, however.

One cannot innately be illegal.
There are illegal substances but there are no laws making it illegal to be a person lel. What a joke.
Anywhere there are southern californians, you can bet that there's a HUGE market for illegal alien labor.

How does this apply to Texas?
Everybody here enjoys the fruits of their labor, southern Californian or not.

We spend billions for their labor. They are a huge nuisance in this country.

Per capita GDP (PPP):
$53,101

Per person household income for the median undocumented household:
$9,443

Yup, undocumented immigrants are stealing our riches clearly...

Thank you. This is the kind of answer I was looking for.

Austin is a sanctuary city even though laws to make it official have failed.

Don't forget the Mexican cartel marijuana growers in Northern California. It's not safe to even visit our less developed lands and parks because of the high crime and murder rates.
