Corpus Christi, TX is much larger than San Angelo and Laredo. The 2010 census may list something over 300k but the city's population has really grown and there are a large number of undocumented persons living there. Farmers in our area began hiring Mexican citizens in order to pay less and there was a domino effect resulting in many illegals coming to and staying in the area.
