Winter Texans think twice about return to area

My wife and I are Winter Texans and have been coming to Victoria for the last six years. We spend a lot of money while we are in Victoria.
Last year, we bought a new pickup truck here, and we contribute greatly to the economy.
We are seriously having second thoughts, however, about coming to Victoria because of the thousands of illegal immigrants coming across the border into Texas.
I sure hope Obama reconsiders and puts the National Guard on the border for extra protection. I'm afraid that if something isn't done, all towns in Texas will suffer.
