I took Texas history in school. All you have to know is this:
>Mexicans didn't want to spend a bunch of money settling Texas because it was filled with Indians
>invite anglos to live there so long as they convert to Catholicism and follow Mexican laws
>new constitution outlaws slavery, Texans decide they don't really give a fuck what Mexicans think
>Santa Anna almost crushes their rebellion but takes a fucking nap
>forced to sign peace treaty under duress (get fucked war diplomacy queers)
>Texas still exists, but is in debt
>joins the Union as a slave state
>Mexico and the U.S. go to war because Mexico didn't recognize Texas independence
>also plantations kept paying for private armies to attack Mexico (expedition the kid joins)
>during all of this, anglos were also trying to deal with the natives
>this usually meant they shot them

Mexicans are currently seething about work from home C*lifornians bidding up the prices for everything and just being faggy gringos. Kinda ironic.

It will return to being rocks and dust.
It's unlivable and unsustainable.
Phoenix will return to the ashes.
