"East of Naco, Tx. a monument and a barbed-wire fence mark the U.S.-Mexico
border. Formerly Mexican territory, the United States purchased southern reaches
of Arizona and New Mexico from Mexico in 1853. Five years before that, at the
end of the Mexican-American war, Mexico had ceded to the United States much of
the territory that now makes up the southwestern U.S." National
Another piece of history Mexicans seemed to have missed out on in their claims
of America having "stolen" their land. All the territories and now
American states once having belonged to Mexico were either fought for and gained
independence from Mexico as in the case of Texas or were purchased from Mexico.
None, absolutely ZERO of the Mexican claims of theft of these areas of land hold
any basis in truth by those who so propogandistly make such claims and demand
repatriation to Mexico of said areas.
"La Reconquista" is a grand scheme of misinformation by Mexican
nationals and members of both legal and illegal immigrant groups within the US
borders bent on gaining sympathy for their constituants continued illegal
immigration into the US, but well and truly their claims are full of propoganda
and totally devoid of truth in the matter.

With all due respect to your opinion, I would like to invite you to read more
about History of the US and Mexico, it helps to read both sides of the story to
reach a balanced understanding.
I learned that years ago when after watching "The Alamo" with John
Wayne (in the 70s I think) and visiting The Alamo in San Antonio Texas (in the
80s) that I learned that bad history/movies and real life don't always agree, if
you are one of the lucky ones that watched History Channel's Alamo you might see
the other side of the story and my meaning.
It might surprise you but when the US invaded Mexico with the plan to take half
the country it wasn't planned by a US General or President, It was planned and
directed by somebody in Mexico City... Yes the invasion was planned by the
Generalisimo president of Mexico Antonio de Santa Ana! (for $30 million reasons
and he was the same guy from El Alamo).
And if you look carefully there are books written about that episode of
Mexican history. Something else you probably dont know is that during the
dictatorship of General Porfirio Diaz, the US planned to invade and take the
rest of the country (I think it was around 1895) but Porfirio Diaz was a smart
politician and found a way to stop said takeover.

Of course we stole Texas and other land from Mexico. We stole the rest of the
country from the American Indians. Well, those we did not kill. Our country was
founded by liars, thieves and murderers, who wanted only wealthy white male
landowners (them) to be able to vote. Wake up.

What's next? Some Russians will want some $$$ because we stole Alaska from
them? I don't know where some of these people came from but where I came from
if you got your ass whipped and wanted more you could always get it. I don't
have any qualms with someone wanting a better life and coming to America to get
it but make a contribution to society and BECOME American when you get here...
LEGALLY. We already have enough deadbeat slackers that want to suck the milk
from Mother America dry. This country was founded on those that wanted to
better themselves, not by those that wanted a handout.

Actually this country was founded on the backs of slaves, or does that not
count in your equation

I'm feeling really guilty about the fact that we homo sapiens displaced the
neanderthals. Sorry, madmex.
