Company 'gives away' Southwest to Mexico

Company 'gives away' Southwest to Mexico: "Navarro said one could argue 'that while Mexico lost the war in 1848, it will probably win it in the 21st century, in terms of the numbers,' 'But that is not a reality based on what Mexico does, it's based on what this country does,' he insisted.

In a 1995 speech to Chicano activists, Navarro said demographic trends are leading to 'a transfer of power' to the ethnic Mexican community in the Southwest. He notes that most studies show that within the next 20 to 30 years Latinos will comprise more than 50 percent of the population of California. This fact, and other cultural and social developments, are opening the door for 'self-determination' and even 'the idea of an Aztlan,' he said in his speech."

Right on, I can't wait to visit Atzlan, the land that I love.

I wonder how multi-generation Mexican-Americans will regard the newcomer undocumented aliens. It will be interesting to see of there are any double-standards.
