Personally, I say no. Lands are won and lost by war and conflict. Thats how countires have grown, formed, and expanded in the past. Oh well.

Besides, if they get the Southwest back, what are they going to do with it? They will be back in Mexico, and jump over the new border. This crap that "its our territory" is dumb because they know that if they get it back for Mexico, they will be in the same situation they escaped from.

mexican people are not running to claim something that was taken away from them. they are running away from something mainly how they are being treated in their own country mainly very very badly. america did not steal anything. americans came to the coast uninvited lookin for gold in 49. mexican people are doin the same thing.

These people look so warm and fuzzy.

Flipping off the people who pay their taxes. How nice of the little leeches.


GREAT IDEA!! Where can I sign up????


I dont remember them owning the continent. They lost it in war. Too bad so sad.

Awwww.....he looks lonely, does he need a friend? I probably have paid for not only his jail time, but his hospital visits, policing, and welfare. And those tatoos were probably on my dime too .


No immigrant group has ever done this before have they?

I swear, people say that Los Angeles and San Antonio basically belong to Mexico because of their names...places that were settled by Spaniards...the Spaniards engaged in pretty much the same immoral behavior that the English did...the Spaniards mated with many of the native Women, where as the English pretty much just killed all of the Natives.
Look at Mexico...it's Races...and it's Economics, many of the Natives live in the most abject poverty...while the White people (who compose around 10%-15% of the population live in enormous haciendas and have great wealth (many do, not all)...and we who don't want benefits given to law breakers are chastised as "racists"? WHAZZAP?!?!?!
Where do you think Los Angeles and San Antonio would be if Mexico controlled it from the mid 1800's until now?

Morally? No. Why have borders around any nation of the world if it comes down to a moral issue?

NANCY PELOSI!!! The US's biggest Amnesty advocate, third in line for president, and congresswoman from San Francisco. She supports the NAU and no borders at all between Mexico and Canada. Shes a true leader, not!
