Answer the question, fork. If the Mexican Army broke into your house, would you pop a cap on them or speak Spanish to them?

Of course I would pop a cap on anyone that broke into my house and I believe I have been misunderstood on this thread. Lets either get serious about it or forget about it and let it get worse. Any foriegner that has a little bit of cash can get into this country a lot easier than walking through the desert.

The Mexicans never controlled Texas and only had a tenuous legal claim to it for a period of 18 years.
The Comanche Indians controlled most of the territory which is now Texas. During and prior to the Texas War for Independence there were only a few thosand Mexican residents in Texas. They and the Spanish before them were quickly wiped out by the Comanches anytime they tried to invade what the Comanches thought of as their territory.
In the meantime, it has been Texas and the U.S. since 1836. That is 170 years compared to the Mexican claims for 18 years.
