These La Raza people and violent protestors are interfering with the citizen's rights and endangering lives.
From up Canada way I was impelled to do some research via Wiki. This was just to try to see the "other side". I became immersed in the subject. The Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo was signed by the United States and Mexico in 1848. Mexico agreed to cede vast tracts of land to America. They got $15 million dollars compensation. (Smart move by America). A colossal sum in today's dollars.
Of interest was the purchase of Louisiana from the French. Also the purchase of Alaska from the Czarist regime in Russia, for $6 million dollars. The Communists at one time said that the Russian Royal family did not have the right to sell Alaska- it did not fly of course.
Smart business people, those purchasing such gifts for time immemorial. The original dollars spent by the donors a long time ago.
