Thousands of Americans, mostly from slave states, flocked to Texas and quickly outnumbered Texans, the region's Mexican residents. The soil and climate offered good opportunities to expand slavery and the cotton kingdom. Land was plentiful and offered under generous conditions. It's the most difficult state in the country, according to the latest figures from the Pew Research Center, which suggest that more than three-quarters of Texas-born adults still live there.
Part of this population boom in Texas is due to a natural increase (more births than deaths), but the number of people moving to the state from elsewhere in the United States and from abroad far exceeds any other U.S. state. Empire Communities inspires homeowners to live beautifully with the latest issue of Design and Lifestyle magazine. Compare this to, for example, Illinois, where if you want to live in a big city you can live in Chicago or you have to move out of state, he says.
The Americans wanted to settle in Texas to get free land and also because they wanted the United States to expand and seize the territories that belonged to Mexico. Mexico offered free land to American colonists who would arrive in Texas and settle in areas threatened by Indian attacks. But why is everyone moving to Texas? Well, I'm sure you've heard that everything is “bigger” there, and that includes opportunities.
