    As for settlement patterns, the TOTAL number of Hispanics in the entire American Southwest was never greater than 50,000 before the U.S. *purchased* this land from Mexico with the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo (for $15 million, in addition to absorbing over $3 million in Mexican debt). The Hispanics who DID live in this territory were sparsely spread out across mostly New Mexico and a few coastal towns in California. Even Los Angeles had only a few thousand Hispanic inhabitants in the 1850s, and was already over 3/4 anglo by the 1880s. The fact is that the VAST majority of Mexican-Americans came to the U.S. in the 20th century, particularly around WWI and later in the 1930s. Even the most liberal, pro-Hispanic scholars simply do not debate this. So you can take your "Aztlan" crap and shove it.
