Mexican Senator wants to take back California and Texas

And with open borders they 
are getting their wish

(The Independent)  -  Mexico is to consider a proposal to revoke its treaties with the US, including the 1848 agreement that transferred half its territory to Washington if Donald Trump is elected and tries to make the US’s southern neighbour pay for a border wall.
A Mexican senator is due on Tuesday to propose legislation that would empower the government to retaliate of Mr Trump inflicts expropriations or economic losses on his country to make it pay for a wall along the 2,000 mile border.

Reuters said that Armando Rios Piter, an opposition senator for the centre-left Party of the Democratic Revolution (PRD), hoped his initiative would protect Mexicans, and highlight the risks of targeting them economically.
“In cases where the property/assets of (our) fellow citizens or companies are affected by a foreign government, as Donald Trump has threatened, the Mexican government should proportionally expropriate assets and properties of foreigners from that country on our territory,” says his proposal.
The Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo was signed by the US and Mexico in 1848 to end a two-year war between the two countries, a conflict that Mexico lost. As part of the deal, Mexico handed to the US, what is now New Mexico, California, Arizona, Utah, Nevada and parts of Wyoming and Colorado. Mr Rios Piter has suggested the treaty could be scrapped if Mr Trump makes it to the White House.

Why stop at California and Texas?
After gaining independence from Spain the Mexican Empire (map above) included Honduras, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras. So if Mexicans are pissed off then why not send their army in and re-take these lost states?
The fact of the matter is before 1821 the nation of "Mexico" had never existed in the history of the world. Mexican "ownership" of Texas only lasted a massive 15 years.  Yes, only 15 years. And Mexican "ownership" of California lasted a huge 27 years.
History is a bitch.
