If the slave trade was banned in the US how did slavery still thrive?

It was only the international slave trade which was banned after 1808. After that time it was illegal to import any new slaves from Africa. Domestic slave trading, within the US, was still perfectly legal. All children born to slave mothers were also slaves, so there was a source of more slaves in this natural increase. Some illegal importation also continued. Men in this trade, called "blackbirders", often landed slaves in Mexico or Texas. Texas did not become a part of the US until 1845. From Mexico or Texas the illegally imported slaves could be brought overland into the US.
