Do you believe Mexico should be given back lands seized by the United States after the Mexican-American War of 1846-48?

  • Yes,I believe Mexico should be given back lands.

    Yes,i believe Mexico should be given back lands seized by the United States after the Mexican-American War of 1848.There is a very believable argument that says that these lands were taken illegally.With that in mind and to keep peace,the US should go ahead and return the lands for the best interest of everyone.

  • Yes they should.

    I do believe that Mexico should be given back lands seized by the United States after the Mexican-American War of 1846-48. This is because those lands weren't really taken in a fair and legal manner. Also, I believe the state I live in would be part of the lands given back. That would be a good thing because I would have to move from the land I hate.

  • The boy heroes\Manifest Destiny

    The Mexican Government has now a better standing of what America is lacking. We would be a number one priority better than the USA and we would be working with every country without a doubt. USA has always been selfish about only the economy they don't care about the ethnicity they have but Mexico could do so much better with the land than with the usa.

  • Yes u. S stole the land making up fake stoies about invadsion in mexico.

    U. S. Had those plans written. To invade mexico by sea. Place their own president all through latin america. So the u. S. Can be more powreful by stealing their oil, Gold, Minerals, Thats what exactly what their doing today. Thats when they wrote that fake manroe article to use and ascuse to invade other countries.

  • I say YES!

    The Mexican-American war, In which was driven more on religious ethics, Rather than political ethics, Caused Mexico to secede the land that was rightfully theirs! Mexico not only lost land, But lost more men than the Americans. The United States basically did the following: Killed more than twice the men of Mexico at battle of Buena Vista and then forced Mexico to sign the treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo. This treaty forced Mexico to secede its land and officially made them allies. So you’re telling me that not only did Mexico secede it’s land, But the US became Mexico’s ally and pretended like nothing happened? Such an atrocity! Americans moved more by recklessness and power hunger than actually sympathizing with a fellow country in which lost more than what they lost in such a war.

  • Mexico i sbeetre mexico

    Us sucks
    Mexicois better and why did the us take territory because they are f evil people which should not had illegally lands so they will get it back and hopefully have more power and wealth than the usa becaus e in the constiyution it saysa all men are created equal

  • Yes, it’s their land not the USA

    Mexico will demand for their land back, Europeans were just greedy in wanting to have more land so therefore they stole half of Mexico’s states. It’s not right how they can just steal other country’s land just because they want to. We Mexicans will put an end to the treaty of guadalupe Hidalgo and recover our land back.

  • Treaty of Hildago.

    Trump violates the Treaty of Hildago. So we need to give it back! The treaty was signed by force anyway! Its an invalid treaty to begin with, so its belongs to Mexico. No amount of money can compensate when Mexico has lost. We have separated families for almost 200 years. Enough is enough

  • Wasn't The United States to Take and Mexico really needed that territory and the U.S. doesn't.

    Mexico would certainly have a better economy today if it weren't for President James Knox Polk's greed and his unsuccessful attempt to extend slavery in the west.
    Davy Crockett and the rest of the people from the U.S. should have realized that when they left their country and entered Texas under Mexico, they gave up their rights.
    The Texas war for independence was a slavery issue since Santa Ana abolished slavery and the Texans wanted to keep their slaves. For example, some of the men who were thought as heroes of the Alamo were slave holders especially Jim Bowie who was a son of a slave trader.

  • Yes, and Mexico will recover it.

    Manifest destiny gives the mexicans the right to do it. If the U.S. did it without a referendum, without asking to the original people there.... Why Mexico can not do the same?

    Just remember, spaniards took 7 centuries to have their land back from arabs. And certainly we will have our land back.

  • Defend Our Nation

    Deport them all and nuke Mexico, They are our enemies, NEVER believe for a moment Mexicans will not rise us against us when their numbers are great enough in the US to do so. If we fail to defend our nation (due to liberalism/White Guilt), then we do not deserve a nation, and our Children and grand children will be murdered and enslaved for many generations.

    Life isn't fair, and neither is nature.

  • Nothing will ever be enough!

    The peoples of Iberia (spanish and portuguese descent) already own the ENTIRE Southern Hermisphere plus all of Central America. These countries are not deserts, they are rich with good soil, forests, minerals, and rich coastlines. For some reason the iberian peoples don't believe that 2/3 of the western hemisphere is enough for them, that they in fact deserve to own the whole thing. But if they've made a mess of the 2/3 they already have, aren't we justified in our fear that they'll just make a mess of the rest if we let them? Their arrogance knows no bounds.

  • Only if they give us back what we won from them first.

    Since in the war of 1848 we took over the whole country of Mexico and then we bought large areas of land from them including California.
    They would owe us for the land we bought from them at its current price if they want it so badly. We gave them back plenty of the land of Mexico (which we did not need to do).
    Of course then they need to give it all back to Spain ( who they took it from), who needs to give it back to the Aztecs, who took it from someone else, who took it from the animals. All in the Spirit of "giving it back", I guess.
    So then where do the people go when we give it back to the animals? Since they are the rightful original owners?
    Just silly people looking for a freebie, who are NOT entitled to one, no matter how you look at it!

  • Are you serious?

    Why would you want to give them lands that are RIGHTFULLY ours? So they can keep inbreeding like crazy? So the cartels can have more room to grow coke and marijuana? So the cartels can build more grave sites filled with people that oppose them? I don't think so. 'Murica!

  • What would be the point?

    We Americans have made tremendous improvements to the land we purchased after the war.

    Mexico couldn't now afford to buy the land back.

    If we gave it back to them, it would soon suck there. Why are millions of Mexicans fleeing their country? Because it sucks there. Why does it suck there? Because there are Mexicans there.

  • If anyone get's land back, it's the Native Americans

    By following this same line of logic, the Native Americans should be given back ALL of their land, it was ALL illegally taken by genocide. How exactly did the Spanish obtain Mexico legally? This debate seems to be the work of shillery, as the idea of the US empire giving up any land is preposterous.

  • Mexico Lost. We keep the land.

    The policy of returning land to the losers of war is amusing. We may be a more civil humanity now, but in the past, war was how things got decided. If a nation had the power to take land, they took it. If Mexico had won land in the war, do you think they would give it up? They got to keep the land they have now. The only reason Mexico does not fully belong to the US is that the leaders at the time got what they wanted and perhaps did not have the for-sight to predict how valuable a thinner piece of land between the Atlantic and Pacific would be.

  • It has long been established and recognized by both countries that such lands are part of the US.

    It has long been established and recognized by both countries that land annexed to the United States following the Mexican-American War is part of the US. Mexico does not contest this, nor has it sought a return of the land. Furthermore, it is highly unlikely that the residents of the territory in question would ever consent to becoming part of Mexico, thus precluding this possibility under the internationally recognized principle of self-determination.

  • No, I do not believe Mexico should be given back lands.

    No, I do not believe Mexico should be given back lands seized by the US after the Mexican American war. That's ridiculous. If all of the countries started giving back lands that they claimed in wars, everyone's borders would change so drastically and it would create global chaos. Leave the borders the way they are.

  • It’s already Americanized
