EPODUNK USER REVIEWS & BLOGS

Humble, TX

Pros: Humble, TX has a rich history from the early oil boom days...

Cons: Over the last twenty or so years, Humble has undergone a major demographic and cultural shift largely due to the massive influx of illegal aliens...

This is a good place to have a business if you are willing to hire illegal alien criminals to increase your profit margin...

General info: After living in Humble for more than twenty years, I have to say that I'll be moving soon and I wouldn't recommend moving here or investing in property here unless of course you happen to be an Illegal Alien Criminal!
