Your site quoted says, â€œMany people are surprised to learn that the United States has no official language.â€ The state I live in is not listed. Hooray for them!
In your reply about Aztlan, that is also a very slanted group that does not speak for the majority of the people they claim to represent.
Misrepresentation of the topic.
PS Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo was signed in 1848
So tell me..what language do you speak? Where did you learn it? Where you born? I just want to know who I am dealing with?
I don't care what you think of the poll results since I can see that you will not accept any information unless it validates your opinion. If you are really interested, you can check polls.com ...which you may or may not accept.
Aztlan is a very slanted but outspoken group. If it were a group demanding Confederate Historical Accuracy, the gov't would have locked them up for hate speech. But it is OK for people who have not taken the Oath of allegiance to this country, and therefore do not have any rights protected under the US Constitution, to claim they have the right to speak out against this country.
I find it amazing, your lack of loyalty to this country and its values. There is no misrepresentation. Just your opinion.
As for the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo...I know when it was signed..after the supposed annexation of the Republic of Texas.
I fail to see your point. The Republic had declared it's independence from Mexico, fought a war and won. Texas was an independent country 1836-1845.
"America subsequently obtained the Southwest in various waysâ€”mostly by conquest in the Mexican (or Mexican Amer i can) War, partly by purchase (the Gadsden Purchase) and partly by agreement (the annexation of Texas, at the time an independent republic. It should also be mentioned that the bear flag of the Re public of California was raised by American settlers at Sonoma on June 14, 1846.) This prompts the question as to how Spain and then Mexico came to â€œownâ€ what is now the American Southwest, which, of course, was never under the control of the Aztec nation. .....
Since the United States inherited its claim to the western lands from Britain, the Treaty of Tordesillas is logically a nullity as far as the U.S. government is (or should be) concerned. It should perhaps be noted that U.S. claims to the west really go as far back as colonial days, since many of the British colonial charters purported to grant to the colonies lands in America stretching all the way to the Pacific Ocean. ....
Beginning with Texas in 1845, which be came a sovereign country in 1836, and California, Nevada, Utah and parts of New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado and Wyo ming (all of which Mexico ceded to the United States in 1848), American settlers outnumbered Mexicans by at least five to one in all eight states except in Texas, where Americans outnumbered Mexicans 10 to one....
....the United States seized California in 1846 and how the U.S. government ended the Texas-Mexico border dispute. The Treaty of Guadalupe Hidal go, which officially ended the war, was signed in February 1848.
According to Muzzey, the annexation of Texas was a perfectly fair transaction. For nine years, since the victory of San Ja cinto in 1836, Texas had been an independent republic, whose military reconquest Mexico had not the slightest chance of effecting. In fact, at the very moment of annexation, the Mexican government, at the suggestion of England, had agreed to recognize the independence of Texas, on condition that the republic should not join itself to the United States. The United States was not taking Mexican territory, then, in annexing Texas...."
â€œIn the year 2010-15, the Hispanic-Latino cohort, which includes illegal aliens, will become dominant populations in the states of California, Florida, Illinois, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas,â€ Flack said. â€œWhile 100 hospitals have closed by 2006, 2,000 more will close by 2010, all bankrupt. All schools will be overcrowded, on year-around schedules, and academic success will be less than half of what it was in 2004. Restricted private-proprietary schools and hospitals will appear to take care of the upper-class, with armed-guards at the doors. Murders in all other schools will be commonplace.â€
â€œBy 2015-20, the Hispanic-Latino cohort will also dominate the states of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Louisiana, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Mississippi, New York, and perhaps a few more,â€ Flack said. â€œThe rich and upper-class will be insulated, just as it is in Mexico in 2006.â€
Again, the growth-rate for the "illegal-alien cohort" is now 17 percent annually. That rate will increase as the "citizenship-opportunity" word spreads to Mexico and beyond. If nothing changes substantially in the next few years, here are those projected numbers:
As of September 2004, there were 20 million illegals, plus their nine million kids here. (Seven million of those kids are "Instant-citizens.") These are Bear-Stearns numbers.
As of September 2005, there were 23 million illegals, plus their 11 million kids here. (Eight million of those kids are "Instant-citizens.")
As of September 2006, there were 27 million illegals, plus their 13 million kids here. (Nine million of those kids are "Instant-citizens.")
As of September 2007, there will be 32 million illegals, plus their 15 million kids here. (11 million of those kids are "Instant-citizens.")
As of September 2008, there will be 37 million illegals, plus their 17 million kids here. (12 million of those kids are "Instant-citizens.")
As of September 2009, there will be 44 million illegals, plus their 20 million kids here. (14 million of those kids are "Instant-citizens.")
As of September 2010, there will be 51 million illegals, plus their 23 million kids here. (17 million of those kids are "Instant-citizens.")
So...we agree to disagree:-2
