Well I live in SoCal in a heavily immigrant population area and I've been able to asses this through many interactions I've had with a lot of them.
Why is that? How is that even possible doesn't make sense to me?
It's weird because when I want to show that I'm trying to be cordial and respectful the first thing I do is try to learn more about their language and culture and communicate this interest in learning as a way to find a common ground.
Isn't that weird? So many immigrants coming here but hating us and our culture but taking full advantage of its resources.

Illegal immigration into the southwest states is sometimes viewed as a form of reconquista, in light of the fact that Texas statehood was preceded by an influx of U.S. settlers into that Mexican province until United States citizens outnumbered Mexicans 10–1 and were able to take over governance of the area. The theory is that the reverse will happen as Mexicans eventually become so numerous in that region that they can wield substantial influence, including political power.
