This chapter employs data that documents the financial behaviors of Southwest Border working families over a five-year period. Paper surveys administered at community-based organizations offering free tax-preparation services in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California generated over 30,000 respondents. The survey findings suggest Border families’ financial behaviors provide provocative empirical evidence of culturally defined economic resiliencies and financial capabilities.
