South Texas is proposed as the Texas-Mexican homeland. Twenty-five contiguous counties in this region have populations that are more than half Mexican American. In 1990 a core of 17 counties along the Rio Grande contained over one million people 85% of whom were Mexican Americans. While several cultural elements distinguish this subregion from others in the Hispanic-American borderland, demographic concentration and political heritage are especially telling indicators.
