Re: Joe Guzzardi`s Column: Enough Already About The Mexican-American War
Ultimately, they say, what goes around sooner or later comes around. Don`t be surprised that Mexico uses migratory tactics to recapture what we lost.
Then again, it shouldn`t matter much to America right, since I believe you guys used the same scam and sugar coated it calling it Manifest Destiny?
Doesn`t time have an amazing way of vindicating those that were taken advantage of?
So Guzzardi shouldn`t tell no [sic] more lies about why Mexicans have never and will never surrender what was theirs from the beginning.
If I were Guzzardi and planned to stay the remainder of his life in California, I advise him to take some Spanish language classes and invite all his other Anglo friends and family to do the same.
It will make his life a lot easier.
Joe Guzzardi replies: This is the closing paragraph of Coronado`s long letter that included references to the Land Act and the Foreign Miners` Tax Law. Coronado maintains that violations to these and other sections of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo justifies Mexico`s hatred for all things American.
Coronado may—or may not—have a valid point. But the inescapable facts remain unchanged. Mexico fought and lost a war; it signed a treaty and accepted money from the U.S. Nowhere is it stated that Mexicans have the right to enter the U.S. illegally because of perceived violations committed under a treaty signed 150 years ago.
I`m living in the 21st Century. I suspect many of our angry Hispanic readers are not.
One more thing for Senor Coronado—I speak Spanish. If only those who live in the U.S. who don`t speak English would learn, the country would be a better place.
