  •  Living in Texas, there's lots of assimilation: (2+ / 0-)

    assimilation of Latino culture by whites. I love the cognitive dissonance of the idea of a bunch of anti-immigrant whites discussing immigration politics while scarfing down enchiladas and burritos* at a Mexican restaurant in a Houston suburb.

    *To be fair, "Mexican" food as typically found in Texas is probably better called "Tejano" food. It is a pretty specific cuisine found in the borderlands on both sides of the Rio Grande.

      would still have been better/more authentic than the "Mexican" food available almost everywhere from PA to NYC when I was a young adult.

      (Immigrants from Puebla, among other places, have opened delicious taquerias, etc., in the decades since, so the situation has improved mightily...but is still not as good as where you are.)

      To make the argument that the media has a left- or right-wing, or a liberal or a conservative bias, is like asking if the problem with Al-Qaeda is do they use too much oil in their hummus. Al Franken
