Dear Editor:

I am so happy that many of your readers have acknowledged the presence of Mexicans here in this country. I just wanted to share a bit of history. Hopefully, that will help them understand. The states of Texas, California, New Mexico, part of Arizona and Colorado once belonged to Mexico. The Treaty of Guadalupe stipulated that the land that belonged to the Mexican citizens was to be given back to them. It never happened. Tijerina, a clergy in New Mexico fought for the rightful return of land to the heirs. He was extradited to Mexico.

Life is not fair! There are other nationalities waiting to emigrate to the United States. Why should Mexicans get priority? What should really be done, in fairness, is to make restitution for the land that was taken away from the Mexicans. Then, the land should be restored to its rightful owners. And pay interest, too!

Then, after the land is returned to its original owners, with restitution for back rent, we can talk immigration. Many people have not read this side of American history.

Sincerely,
Marie Bernal
