It an idea only liberals could seriously consider. Portions of America would be transferred to Mexican sovereignty. That would be one way to get rid of illegal aliens, but can people be serious about this?
This stems from the Mexican-American War, not one of the brighter spots on our history. At least not according to early presidents such as John Quincy Adams and U.S. Grant in addition to other notable American leaders including General Robert E. Lee. It's been referred to as America's first war of territorial conquest, one that resulted in a sizeable part of what was Mexican territory being annexed by the U.S. Government.
The results of this war still manifest themselves today in movements in the American Southwest among those of Mexican descent to secede from the U.S. and return to Mexico. Now we see these movements and others considering filing claims in international courts demanding that their request be granted to return what they consider as stolen territory back to Mexico.
