I wanted to putthis in political but after searching 7 pages in interest I settled for this one. Now Mexico sold us this land. backthen Now they want to come here illeagle and try to take it back? I dont think so do you. I think more states ought to put up the law just as Arizona has done and stick behind it and the government should already be standing up for a law that has been in place for year oust the illeagles! Stop giving away our hard earned dollars to the free loaders they can come in the way all have done before with sponcer and waving thier country behind! 1848-02-02 - Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo ends Mexican War; US acquires Texas California, New Mexico & Arizona for $15 million 1848-05-30 - Mexico ratifies treaty giving US; New Mexico, California & parts of Nevada, Utah, Arizona & Colorado in return for $15 million 1853-06-24 - Gadsden Purchase 29,670-square-mile (76,800 square km) from Mexico (now southern Arizona and New Mexico) for $10 million signed by President Franklin Pierce

I am also so sick of people saying that America is a country of immigrants where at one time everyone who was not an American Indian was an immigrant. This is very true but they came here legally, as I did. However those illegal immigrants are just that..illegals which makes them criminals and should be treated as such. I think it is crazy for us to allow them to take over our country and expect us to foot the bill for all their support and speak their language. We have plenty of Americans who are living below the poverty level. They could use our help...CHARITY BEGINS AT HOME!!!! Not paying for a bunch of frigging criminals!

I agree with you too whiteheather39. Why do these asians and mexicans get funding. We have some in our old neighborhood that was given a full apartment of furtniture AND a new van. Can you believe it! We should all be so lucky!

I don't think they want this land back. They want a better life. Mexico is a whole different ball game. Poor and pathetic. They want jobs and a better life. I think it is natural for those states closer to the border to have more mexicans in them. Only makes sense. Sad that it has come to this. Sort of back fired on them.
