Yes, there most certainly is. There also seems to be quite a bit of hypocrisy among the pro-illegal bunch. All one has to do is read their posts in this forum.

It is really quite unbearable, and downright ridiculous the accusations and assumptions that have been thrown around on these forums. When will it end?
On the other thread you just said "In the USA, I'm a Mexican". That looked like establishing your nationalism and allegience to Mexico.

Yes, that's exactly what I said. It was a quote from a movie. And its true, only in the U.S.A am I characterized being Mexican, while in the Mexico I'm characterized as a "gringo".

Nationality can also mean a relationship with ones culture as well.

Well with living 15yrs in Mexico can understand the people a little. While living in Mexico City, I was told more then once that any mexican that grows up in the states is considered to be Americanized and thus is considered an American Gringo. So, according to Californio, he feels that in the US he is looked on as a mexican. While in Mexico people see him as a GRINGO due to maybe living/growing up in the US. Hope people understand the comparison I outlined which is based on my personal experience living in Mexico City and baja. The people in Mexico City are a breed of different combinations of Mexico as a whole and have their own way of thinking towards the US. Suerte, Stefhen

This is true Stefhen, but I believe that there are less Myths regarding the USA in Mexico, that those Mexican myths in the USA, although that doesn't mean there are no myths in Mexico, specially in small towns people build stories about America and imagine things.
