You kill your morality when you turn your back on your brothers over man-made, politically-driven laws. All should be welcome to roam the earth as they please. In fact, it is a birthright. I'm well aware where we are at in this time period on earth, and that my wish, is, just a wish.

I'm pretty sick of people blaming Mexicans for making their way back into the land that was stolen from them.

Last time i checked, the land belongs to none other but the earth.
We can pretend we own it, but that's just being childish.
And the native Americans knew that. Their intention was protection, not production.

Not really. If you're really asserting that if this was done today it wouldn't be considered robbery and fraud then idk what to say bc nothing will clearly work. Or vice versa. As far as I know, robbery and fraud have always been the same throughout the years.
Another one for all you ignorant Mexico haters.

Ok Im just going to say it. Can somebody name one town/city/area in the United States that is majority Hispanic people that does not look like Mexico? That is not trashy? That does not have dogs running around all over the place? That does not have babies walking around alone? That does not have mexican flags all over the place? Because I find myself hard pressed to find such an area where I live. Its funny how most the people I find who don't care about the problem don't live in the problem. They always seem to live far away uninfected by it.
So lets say tomorrow we decide to give the "stolen" states back to Mexico... What do you think would happen? Let me tell you. All the drug cartels, kid nappers, criminal gangs will all get new territory. And before long the (now recovered "stolen" states) will plummet into 3rd world status. Do you really think if they got the states back they will become luxury vacation spots and destinations? Sorry but reality hurts. We happen to live next door to one of the most corrupt countries in the world. Do you really think all the people coming here illegally are all the good ones?
