Inspired in other discussion topics that present a new topic every certain ammount of time (usually a day, but I'm giving a week here), I present you... the Geographical Topic of the Week.... Please try to keep a decent level of discussion here, so if you agree with someone and have nothing else to say, then save it to yourself.
The Mexican Reconquista
In the early days of Mexico, certain territories were under their possesion, such as California, Arizona, New Mexico and parts of Texas. After a war with the US all of these territories passed to the US, but most of the legacy remained, for example, the names of the Cities and some landmarks have names in Spanish such as San Francisco, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Sacramento, etc...
Nowadays, it seems that the Mexicans are flourishing in the area, due to inmigration (both legal and illegal) and also due to the fact that the population growth of the Mexican and hispanic populations are bigger than the non hispanic populations (Americans, African-American, Asian, etc). It's this situation that makes one feel that Mexico has reconquered their former domains. Will this mean that these states may end up in Mexico and leaving the US? I personally doubt it, but it remains as a possibility.
I'd like to hear the opinions of those living in the mentioned states and of course of all those that are interested.
