I'm of Tejano descent. Here's my 2 cents worth on the Aztlan movement. It a total load of BS. Firstly the original Aztlan empire was only in the Central part of Mexico. They were far too many other fierce Native American tribes in Texas and the other Southwestern US states for them to make any true claim upon the land. Even when those lands were claimed by Mexico in the 1830's, the Mexicanos weren't safe 5 minutes horseback ride from their presidios or mission/forts. Name the tribe and they used the Mexicanos as target practice. They hated the Mexicans even worse then the Anglos because the Spanish Catholic Missionaries obsessive dirve to force convert them to Christianity. Once they converted the natives, the native were forced to work as virtual slave labor for having their souls saved by the missionaries. Hence the target practice on Mexicanos. The Spanish had colonized Mexico in the early 1500's and 300 years later still didn't control the lands it claimed as its territory, no matter what the Aztlan movement might claim. In fact, the nearly pure blooded natives in many parts of Mexico today are often in armed rebellion against the Mexican National govt as in the state of Chiapas.
What you see being reported in the news is propaganda meant to cause racial tensions. Want to fix the immigration problem, modernize the Mexican economy and there will good paying jobs in Mexico and the Mexican workers will flood back to their native country. Do you really think they want to work for sometimes less than minimum wage thousands of miles away from their families? Besides, I give Mexico another 20 years max before there's another full revolution with the current states along our border either forming another country or becoming part of the American Commonwealth like Puerto Rico.

Given that we have used the CIA to destabilize their countries so long, why shouldn't they come here?
Its just payback time voting America!
