The transition is more gradual in the northeast/Great Lakes, right?
Largely this is the case, it seems, but there’s more nuance. For instance, New Orleans is historically non-Mexican while Atlanta is mostly Mexican. This may be due to the pattern you note in your follow up comment: New Orleans is coastal.

Also: rural N.C has a Mexican population centered around Fayetteville.
