    Re: Do Mexicans want their Land Back?

    Can we make a deal that when the Mexicans give their land back to the people the Spaniards stole it from then we can continue this discussion? Personally...I dont think 'Mexicans' want their land back...they see the ****hole they created in their own country and are glad to be able to escape there and find jobs and a relatively decent quality of life here.

    Sadly, there ARE still slaves in the U.S. as there are in most countries around the world. It is just hidden and illegal, but it doesn't change the fact that its existance is a sad reality.

    The US started the war, as they declared war first.

    Re: Do Mexicans want their Land Back?

    There is a very clear cut rejection of the Mexican people but not to Mexican culture in America. We have appropriated their culture, their holidays and parts of their land but have told them that they can't come over to our country. This would seem highly confusing to most people and it's very interesting phenomenon which hasn't really been studied in academia.

    The United States has never created anti-Canadian immigration laws or laws bent against the migration of Canadians whether this migration is made legally or illegally. So why the discrepancy when it comes to Mexican? Well this could be for various reasons and I'm convinced it is a mixture of them. The first is that the US as a country has historically been anti-immigration regardless of where that migration is coming from. The second is that there is a protestant xenophobic attitude towards the Catholic mestizos down south. The third is that if were actually to embrace Mexican immigration we'd then be left without a negative factor in our society. If we were to make them into tax paying citizens of this country, which many of them want to be, we could no longer blame our problems on them. We'd have to find a new group to blame it all on.

    What is certain is that the 'give us your poor' axiom was just that, an axiom. It was never meant to include the poor from Mexico or the poor from Italy or the poor from Ireland. It was only meant for certain types of poor.

    You are assuming that. And I think your assumption is incorrect.
