The usa is no more a part of Mexico than Mexico is a part of Spain. Mexico is it's own sovereignty, even though Mexico was stolen from the Native indian. If you think the USA should hand back Mexico, maybe Mexico should be handed back to the Mayans. The borders of Mexico today, is Mexico. The Borders of the USA today is the USA. Simple!

So if somebody buys your house, you are free to go back and live in it any time you like because it was once yours? What school system are you in?

Absolutely Andrea. Also the spoils of war decides who owns any land. This is how the world works. The USA does not belong in any way to Mexico (spoils of war). The UK doesn't run around screaming that America is part of the UK, We lost the colonies pure and simple. Now if Mexico wants to declare war on the USA and invade it, that's their decision, but don't scream if you lose the war and all of Mexico becomes the USA. Sounds like small boys who lose anything and then cry "best of three" lmao

The USA doesn't belong to Mexico, it was stolen from the Indians. If that's a problem, call New Delhi and maybe they'll accept our apology. I can't STAND geographic ignorance.

Either Achury is a Troll or is pulling our collective legs.

Here you go Achury... this is how Texas became part of the USA.
Mexico's cession of California and New Mexico and its recognition of U.S. sovereignty over all Texas north of the Rio Grande formalized the addition of 3.1 million sq km (1.2 million sq mi) of territory to the United States. In return the United States agreed to pay $15 million and assumed the claims of its citizens against Mexico. A final territorial adjustment between Mexico and the United States was made by the Gadsden Purchase in 1853.
Texas is part of the USA and it cost America a fortune to aquire it.
