Absorbing Half of Mexico Altered American Culture

“Proponents of America’s system of immigration controls lament what they say are ‘invaders’ crossing the U.S.-Mexico border and entering the United States. Many of them say that this ‘invasion’ is a conspiracy to alter the culture of the United States in a Hispanic direction. Ironically, very few, if any, of these anti-invaders ever condemn what the U.S. government did with the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo in 1848. That treaty did more to change the culture of the United States in a Mexican direction than immigrant ‘invaders’ could ever hope to do. With the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, the United States succeeded in stealing and absorbing the entire northern half of Mexico. Yes, you read that right — the entire northern half of Mexico, a country that had been part of the Spanish Empire for centuries before acquiring its independence in 1821.” (04/02/24)
