So the State of Texas sets property values. Wow. Here I always thought the value of property was dependent upon the desirability of the location. Yes, property is more expensive in California because the location is more desirable. Isn't that a "Free Market" concept? Isn't the Real Estate mantra: location, location, location.
No one has provided any evidence that "the ones coming in are illegals..." Typical Right wing shoot-from-the-lip, regurgitate-Conservative-media spittle.
