ricardo_rodriquez123,

The vast majority of legal Latino residents of San Antonio/Bexar County & the rest of south TX are descendants of people who immigrated 2,3,4, or up to 10 generations ago.

My adult daughter (who is now a US citizen) is one of the FEW Mexicans who I know who lives here. = She always rolls her eyes when the local Latinos say that they are "Mexicans", as she says that, "They are no more Mexican than they are Chinese."

One of my friends from Goliad County & who calls himself "Tejano", is a direct descendant of a Spanish cavalry CPL & an Apache teenage girl who married in 1603 & settled down to farm the same land that Oscar & Maria still farm in 2016.

yours, satx

The more affulent Mexicans are from D.F. and Nuevo Leon. The more middle class immigrants are from Chihuhua. Based on my 26 years of experience in San Antonio.

Perhaps the wealthier crowd.

When in SA, I tend to be mainly on the Southside or rural South Bexar County, most people I have met in SA who are Mexican in these area have roots in various areas of Nuevo Leon, Choahuila, and Tamaulipas, either they are from there or have parents or grandparents who are. Although I am sure there are Chilango's in SA, I personally have yet to meet one.

Had always assumed that a lot of the recent (last 20 years) wealthier immigrants were from Nuevo Leon, especially after Sonterrey entered the local lexicon as an amalgam of Sontera and Monterrey.
As an aside, recall from a 90's trip through mexico that residents of several states/cities were given (sometimes unflattering) nicknames...
Chilangos- DF
Codomontanos-Nuevo Leon (Monterrey)
Pipopes-Puebla
Any others?

It is logical that most are from the closest states to Texas, this is Tamaulipas, Nuevo Leon and Coahuila.

Although people with money come from all over Mexico to San Antonio, I heard recently that the singer Vicente Fernandez has a house in San Antonio, he is from Jalisco.
