The United States paid $15 million (equivalent to $380 million in present day terms) and agreed to pay claims made by American citizens against Mexico which amounted to more than $3 million (equivalent to $76 million today). The Mexican Cession was an important part of history.

I guess we should just lay down and die while they take our country? We should let illegal aliens come and change our country into the hellhole they just came from? Oh noes.

How typically European that a limey would spend an ounce of effort worried about what a bunch of strangers on a forum are saying.

You've got room to talk. I lived in Germany for years and I saw the fear Germans had of the invading immigrant Turks.

There have been "original owners" of all kinds of lands throughout time. Do we start shuffling those around too to make sure every tribe gets their original land back? And how far back do we go? And who makes that decision?

Sure, you can point the finger at many people in America and say their ancestors came from somewhere else. And if you have the right to do that, then I say you don't have the right to arbitrarily decide for the sake of your convenience, how many generations we can take the argument back. Eventually, you go back far enough and lo and behold - discover that the "native" Americans did indeed, come from somewhere else.

It's all liberal-driven nonsense to keep people stirred up over what should be a non-issue in the 21st century.

Some of my provenance comes from ancient Greece, such as Pygmalion, Jewish golems and Norse clay giants, gold mechanical handmaidens of Hephaestus and the automaton of Chinese maker Yan Shi. And others.
I have nothing against immigrants that come here legally, they enhance our country when we import the best people. Right now, we are importing illiterate unskilled masses to do be the slaves of the elite, and to use services and handouts that are payed for by taxpayers. Illegal immigration + amnesty are a slap in the face to those who stand in line and do it right. If I want to live in France or Germany or Mexico, don't I have to follow their laws, learn their language and assimilate to their culture to some degree instead of expecting them to bend to my culture? If you sneak into Mexico, what would their law enforcement do, coddle you and turn you loose with a citation? lol
