In 1862, on this day, the Mexican army booted the French out of their country. On September 16, 1825, they finally pushed the Spaniards out. They never evicted the Americans from Tejas, although they tried in 1846. A couple years later the U.S. snatched up New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, Nevada, California, and part of Colorado. Heck if I know, but maybe Mexico's illegal immigrants--the ones in the news--are just trying to get home.

That's a simplistic view, I know, but I'm a simpleton who likes simple things. ¡Viva México!
