Foxen Canyon was used by the US army to go around the mexican army to capture Mexico City and make the Mexican government surrender- without a shot being fired on US soil. Mexico was so busy trying to catch the US army that Mexico never captured anything on this side of the border. Only things that Mexico captured were the soldiers in their own army by pointing a gun at their head and giving them a choice betwen dying and joining the Mexican army. A good story for those forced into the slavery of the Mexican army- none died because they outsmarted so much and thereby lived. But much hatred taught to children now in Mexico's school for white people because of the defeat back then.

That hatred is the kind Abel Maldonado learned growing up in Mexico. Maldonado smiles for the camera and then goes back to being angry at white people.He is ugly when angry.
