Exactly right. It was Spain who stole the territory from the Indians, it was the government of Spain who ruled over it. The Mexican government after Mexican Independence from Spain was divided and weak and unable to govern over it's northern territories.

And today it seems Mexico's government is too weak to govern over it's northern states.

Yet - where are all these loyal Mexicans when it comes to saving what's left of their country now? They seem perfectly willing to let Mexico fall apart and fall into the rule of violent cartels - that's how much they really care for their country.

Their only goal is to get as much US dollars and US welfare handouts for themselves. They have no real pride in their country. Or -- we'd see them wanting to go home and defend it now.

The Mexican Army had guns also - they just weren't as good with them as our soldiers were with their weapons. Stealing something at gunpoint implies that the one being robbed is unarmed.

I'll say it: why Mexico is still hurting over losing Arizona and so on is beyond me yet Mexico doesn't want Guatemala back.

It's never going to happen either...the Dems want to coddle them and the Repubs want to work them...we lose both ways.

Yes, but they want US government Medicaid and food stamps, WIC, and free housing when they have their babies here. Funny how they never want to stick to their own country's kind of welfare handouts while they claim their only coming because the USA really belongs to Mexico.

Also as many would be relocating to Guatemala as to the USA because Guatemala actually was once a part of Mexico. Interestly enough the illegals aren't pouring into Guatemala from Mexico.

Yes, the goodies they receive through their anchors is part of the enticement to come here but with the reconquista types it is all about the numbers. The more babies they make on our soil the more political clout they will gain until the takeover is complete.

I have often wondered the same thing myself. Why aren't they trying to take back Guatamala? Wish one of the defenders of illegal aliens in here would answer that.
