What!!!!! Have to say that things are getting worse with the influx of so many illegal aliens who come here to abuse the system rather than to seek jobs.

Corrupt local pro-Mexican politicians, drug smugglers, murders, burglaries, vehicle thefts, lawsuit abuse, home invasions, etc...Wonder what they consider a bad place to live.

Most illegal aliens go north and please we have plenty of people of all races abusing the system. As for corruption McAllen has pretty decent leaders, at least its not washington corruption. McAllen has fewer violent crimes than most places its size. So like i said coming from SAn Antonio where you have ghettos in many places and doesnt feel that safe, McAllen has been a great experience.

One more thing most drugs pass by the border to go up north where i am sure the demand is high.

If I had to live in the Texas Valley, McCallen would be my first choice. It's utopia compared to craptacular places like Weslaco and Brownsville.

Whoever things McAllen is a "shithole" is just a stupid douche with his head so far up his own ass he has failed to take note of all the opportunities and sources of entertainment the beautiful city has to offer.

Somebody is trying to sell us a lemon. No intelligent person wants to live within 200 miles of the Mexican border. Canadian border towns are okay because Canadians are mostly European descendants, intelligent and civilized.
