"You stole our land and we want it back"


This is a phrase that illegal aliens have started chanting. Claiming that the United States had illegally taken over their territory such as Texas, California and Oregon and they want it back citing the treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo.
I will admit that I am not a historian and that this was the first that I ever heard of this treaty, so I decided to do a little research and thanks to the Montery County Historical Society, I found a copy of the treaty which you can view at this link.

" The Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, ending the Mexican War, was signed on February 2, 1848, by Nicholas P. Trist for the United States and by a special commission representing the collapsed government of Mexico. Trist disregarded a recall to Washington, and negotiated the treaty in violation of most of his instructions. The U.S. Senate reluctantly approved the treaty.
Under the treaty, Mexico ceded to the United States Upper California and New Mexico (including Arizona) and recognized U.S. claims over Texas, with the Rio Grande as its southern boundary. The United States in turn paid Mexico $15,000,000, assumed the claims of American citizens against Mexico, recognized prior land grants in the Southwest, and offered citizenship to any Mexicans residing in the area."

Again, I'm not a historian or legal expert and I will be looking into this in more detail after finals week, but from the jest of what I'm getting from this is that the United States and Mexico were at war and Mexico lost.

"they want it back", even for the sake of argument if these territories were returned, they would be returned to the Mexican government, not the people.

So I would take that under consideration before I make such a claim especially since the major reasons cited for being here is because of the lack of opportunities and tyranny from their homeland.

Robin, keep up the good work. Unfortunately these illegals have established themselves into the mainstream of our politics and universities. We need a way to expose these lies and refuse to fund these gatherings. We need a group of pitbull lawyers to stop the use of public places and resources from being used to aid and abet criminals. The agenda of these groups is transparent if you look into their mission statement. It is to do whatever necessary to take back U.S. territory. Unfortunately their backers don't see the big picture. Mexicans need to fix Mexico, we can help. Mexico is a great land full of opportunity and resources, miles of beautiful beaches, rich with oil and natural gas reserves. The problem is the government and culture of corruption and inefficiency. It's like having an addict in your family. If you don't address the problem of addiction and continue to enable them, soon the whole family will be dragged down.

Perhaps if the Illegal Mexicans were to approach this differently they would win.

"IN THE NAME OF ALMIGHTY GOD"

That violates the Church/State separation and should be null and void, thus if they were to assemble a corrupt enough set of lawers and argue this correctly do you think they could stand a chance...?

...Also, if this treaty were to be annulled, would this mean we are still at war with Mexico, and therefore we could go take the rest of the California Penninsula. While we are at it, we should take the Yucatan as well.

We could have 2 new states, the state of Resort and the state of Baja.

Jimbob,
We are at war with Mexico. They have invaded our borders and are now demanding we surrender our land to them. Is this not war?
