The La Raza Lie

"The Europeans stole the continent."

"California was stolen from Mexicans."

You constantly hear La Raza members, Hispanic community leaders, and even several Hispanic United States government officials saying that Americans "stole" the continent and it is rightfully theirs. What they fail to acknowledge is that their corrupt leaders for whom they have never stood up to ... SOLD it to us in the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo.

Via Wikipedia:
The Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo was the peace treaty that ended the Mexican-American War (1846â1848). The treaty provided for the Mexican Cession, in which Mexico ceded 1.36 million km² (525,000 square miles) to the United States in exchange for USD$15 million.

The United States also agreed to take over $3.25 million in debts Mexico owed to American citizens.

The remainder of the land was obtained in yet another purchase, The Gadsden Purchase of 1852.

The United States wanted to make certain "boundary adjustments"; Mexico needed money and wanted a settlement of her Indian claims against the United States; and Gadsden and his friends wanted a route for their railroad. In 1852 Gadsden agreed to pay Santa Anna $10,000,000 for a strip of territory south of the Gila River and lying in what is now southwestern New Mexico and southern Arizona.

It was in no way stolen! It was bought, and paid for with a very steep price. Ask these people ... if we were to give them back California ... are they going to pay back the money we bought it with? Do they realize how much $15 million was back in 1848? Are they going to pay us based on what that amount would be worth today? Do they have about $360 Billion? It's very difficult to imagine how any person with the slightest bit of common sense or intelligence could possibly believe that it was "STOLEN." As of the time of this posting, I have yet to dig up any info on a single court ruling judging the sale of this land to be illegal.

They also leave off one other important fact. The purchase gave automatic U.S. citizenship to all Mexicans living in California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas. So, there you have it. No Mexican was ever kicked off the land. They were in fact, given automatic citizenship. Stolen?!

Yet, we get this, this, and this.

The truth is, that the number of illegals crossing our borders who are coming simply to work ... is very small. Most of them, are coming here to collect free welfare, free food stamps, free school, and free medical care. And unfortunately, many of them are here with other, more dangerous intentions. The influx of ILLEGAL aliens will undoubtedly break our economy.

The bottom line is ... if you are Mexican, Russian, Chinese, Pakistani, or whatever ... I am happy to welcome you here. Simply do it legally.
