There are practically NO Spanish people in Mexico, as it never attracted immigrants after the colonial period. Mexico's current population is about 69% mixed race, 30% Indian and less than 1% white of any European origin. The only Spaniards you meet in the United States tend to be University Professors or white collar employees of multinational firms. Since Spain is a wealthy nation with a low birth rate, it hasn't sent too many immigrants anywhere and, as a matter of fact, is currently being inundated with immigrants from the Middle East , Africa and Latin America.
In short, calling a Mexican or Bolivian "Spanish" just because they speak Spanish makes about as much sense as calling a black Jamaican or Chinese American "English."
