A yes or no answer should suffice.
Yes, Mexico is wrong in teaching that the USA stole half the country. As many posts have related, there have been multiple episodes of land grabs and treaties in the history of western civilization. Including those between the U.S. and Mexico.

Mexico needs to wake up, face the 21st century, teach some country pride to its citizens, rather than push the victim card. Yes, it's pretty and shiny, but it's self pity.

It's over and done. Yes, LA may become a cesspool of Mexican filth but not the rest of the U.S.

Drop the victim card.

The whole idea that illegals are pouring over the border into the USA because for a few years Mexico ruled over these lands is simply absurd anyhow.

They are pouring over the borders because they lust for US dollars and US welfare handouts. Guatemala was once a part of Mexico too - but you don't see Mexicans fleeing across that border for that reason.

It's all about what they can take from the USA. It has nothing to do with any sense of patriotic duty to Mexico - all they want is out of there.

Maybe it is time for an honest war with them. They want to insist that we leave this country because it's theirs now. We're supposed to just hand it over?

But all you have to do is see how much they're willing to do for their beloved Mexico. Leave it. That's it. And everyone of them would go running back if Mexico were to offer them better welfare handouts, more food stamps and better free health care than they are able to take from the USA.
