San Benito,Texas Photograph showing San Benito Light Newspaper Staff Loaded
In the early 20th century Japanese immigrants settled in Mission, San Juan and San Benito in the Rio Grande Valley to grow vegetable and citrus crops. A second wave of Japanese arrived around 1920, many from California where they faced increasing anti-Japanese agitation. Most of these Japanese families settled in the lower Valley, as well.
Less than one percent of the population of Texas makes up Japanese Texans today.
