I was born, raised and lived most of my life here in Laredo. It hasn't changed a bit just a few restaurants and parks. The only problem there's not enough places to have fun. Lake Casa Blanca don't forget to wear shoes because in the lake there's a lot of glass broken bottles everywhere. Laredo it's not going nowhere they spend millions of dollars for what the majority of things are closing down and not good enough to have. I prefer how Laredo was in the 90's but the other problem Nuevo Laredo people are starting to move over here and they don't drive right. It's really horrible and they are getting easy things like food stamps, the mall gets too crowded just for the sales, scholarships, more bullying, the gay word started in the 2015's, etc. It's going chaos and hasn't change a bit. Do I like it, nope.
Laredo was founded by the Spanish explorer, Pedro Sanchez, in 1755. It has the distinction in Texas of having served under seven flags. At one time Laredo was an independent republic called the Republic of the Rio Grande. The people in Laredo were loyal to the 1824 Mexican Constitution that General/President Santa Anna had trashed. The people then rose against Santa Anna, declaring themselves an independent Republic. The Mexican Army attacked Laredo and destroyed the Republic of the Rio Grande.
