No, you are missing the point. Mexico's claim to that area is based on a lie.
The Spaniards interbred with natives in the Mexico area. So the modern Mexicans have as much claim to anything as any other bastard child. The fairy tale of modern Mexicans having a claim to the area is based on a revisionist history. The European ancestry of modern Mexicans negates any claim to the area. Why is Spanish the native tongue? Because Spain took over the land! I find most people ignorance on the matter to be pure intellectual laziness.
