"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 Geographic

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.

Hi Mrkim,

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. hot smiley

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.
