The paper discusses how many people feel that Mexican immigration laws should be eliminated because much of the land in the U.S. was "stolen" from the Mexicans. Yet strict immigration laws and violation penalties apply to Mexicans, and those who come to the U.S. are often mistreated and taken advantage of. The paper discusses the history of the Mexican-American War and the social problems faced by immigrants and Americans today.
From the Paper:"In the United States, the English-speaking founders of our nation largely killed off most native inhabitants, while the Spanish-speaking conquerors of Mexico merely defeated and enslaved them. The Native Americans of Latin America, despite the tragic loss of their own cultural traditions, at least survived as they were assimilated into the Hispanic culture. As a result, the Hispanic-American peoples not only represent the Spanish-European culture in America, but they are also the largest body of surviving Native Americans. The Latinos are the only surviving Native Americans."
