"Anyone who knows the history of Texas knows why this is a good idea.
Texas was a part of Mexico until they started letting white refugees from the USA settle there (who were traitors, BTW, as they had to renounce their US citizenship to do so).

I know Texas history quite well. I live in the heart of where most of it happened, San Antonio. I will not allow you to rewrite it.
The people who settled Texas were not refugees. They were homesteaders who were promised. They were British, German, and French colonists. The Apache and Comanche were already there as well as a large number of Mexican nationals who opposed Santa Ana's rule. They were not all white as you claim. The area was not well populated, so the newly formed Mexico invited Americans to live there. Being invited, they were not refugees as you claimed. Nor did they did not have to renounce their citizenship as you claimed.
As with the American Revolution, power was concentrated in one area (current day Mexico) and the people on the fringes were treated unfairly and the imposition of tariffs pissed them off. Hence the revolution.
Traitors? Nope. The Indians had been there for centuries. The German, British, and French were settlers and who never renounced the citizenship of their homelands. If there were any traitors, it was the Americans who were part of a group who denounced the British Crown a few decades earlier in the American Revolution and signed a famous document doing so -- the Declaration of Independence. (you may have heard of it) I guess if those guys were traitors of the British crown, the Texians (they weren't Texans) were traitors to the iron fisted rule of Mexico.
Though your revisionist version of Texas history is amusing, it is far from accurate. Read more of it here if you have any desire to know the truth.
