    Oh?

    What about the U.S. government’s annexation of the northern half of Mexico or, to be more precise, the land grab that encompassed California, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, Texas, and parts of Wyoming and Colorado?

    We paid Mexico for that land. Further they started and lost a war with us. Wars have consequences.

    If we just keep it, it's a shorter trip for Mexicans who come up to sponge off the white man. If we gave it back, it'd be inhumane the long trip north they'd have to make to sponge off the white man.

    Guess the Mexican-American War after Texas fought and won independence had nothing to do with it.

    Forget that the US paid Mexico 15 million dollars and assumed 3.25 million of debt owed by the Mexican government.
