There has historically been tension between the US and Mexico. Dont forget that we invaded Mexico...
We did, indeed, and, as with all wars, we can argue all day over who started the conflict. However, none of that is really relevant now, because, in my personal experience, those Mexicans who hate the gringos do not do so out of some lingering resentment from the Mexican-American War. Heck, other than saying "the gringos stole our land!" most don't know enough of the history of that long-gone conflict to cite it as a cause for hatred. No, they hate gringos because the racial grievance industry tells them to. It is so wonderful to be able to blame some other people for all of your own failings, or the failings of your people as a whole.
Add to that the fact that Mexico is a poor, corrupt, narco state that practically forces their own people to emigrate to make a living. However, they know crossing the border illegally is wrong. After all, Mexico, itself, does not tolerate illegal immigrants on its southern border, and deals with them quite harshly. However, if you very much want to go from your poor, corrupt country into a rich, somewhat less-corrupt country and milk it for everything, but you need to assuage your conscience while doing so, the easiest way is to claim some legitimate grievance that justifies your crime: "We didn't cross the border, the border crossed us! The gringos stole our land! We're just taking it back!" But really they are just ginning up ethnic and national tensions to justify their own illegal behavior.

No, the underclass Mexicans hate the gringos for the same reason that the black underclass hates the white middle class: because the gringos can produce things by their efforts that people will freely pay money for, and the underclass members can't. Because they know in their souls that they are inferior and there's nothing they can do to change that.

Very good post. America is the dumping ground for the paleface Euro-Mexican elites who are overjoyed to see their crude illiterate Indians and semi-Indian Mestizos stream into America. Everyday they laugh themselves to sleep at the stupid gringos allowing themselves to be invaded.
