Okay, isn't it fucked that Texas was once Mexican, but the reason why it's now part of the United States was because Anglo, emigrants came in and soon the Mexican population became the minority and the US took it over.

Couldn't that happen again with, you know. Europe?

The US didn't take it over, Texas became independent and a lot of Mexicans fought on the side of Texas.

>>53162775
This is also true. Mexico didn't even give a fuck about the illegals, but Polk literally sent an army to their borders to provoke a war so they could formally annex the territory.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mexican_Texas#Immigration

Just before Mexico achieved independence, Spain reversed its policies and passed a colonization law. The law allowed colonists of any religion to settle in Texas but prohibited the importation of slaves into Spanish territory. All slaves brought to the area would be freed. Mexico adopted a similar law in 1824. The General Colonization Law which enabled all heads of household who were citizens of or immigrants to Mexico to be eligible to claim land. The law did not differentiate among races or social stature, and people who had been granted occupancy rights would be able to claim the land patent for the dwellings. Unlike its predecessor, the Mexican law required immigrants to practice Catholicism and stressed that foreigners needed to learn Spanish. Settlers were supposed to own property or have a craft or useful profession, and all people wishing to live in Texas were expected to report to the nearest Mexican authority for permission to settle. The rules were widely disregarded and many families became squatters.

>The rules were widely disregarded and many families became squatters.

>There was no shortage of people willing to come to Texas. The United States was still struggling with the aftermath of the Panic of 1819, and soaring land prices within the United States made the Mexican land policy seem very generous.

>Austin was later granted permission to resettle 800 other families in Texas. Twenty-three other empresarios also brought immigrants to Texas. Of these, only one of the empresarios, Martín De León settled citizens from within Mexico; the others came primarily from the United States. Many of the Anglo settlers owned slaves.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/General_Colonization_Law#Results_and_modifications
>Many Americans immigrated to Mexico, where land was cheaper. By 1830, Texas had a population of 7,000 foreign-born residents, with only 3,000 Mexican residents. The new population was not fully assimilated. Many immigrants settled in the eastern part of Texas and were isolated from the established Mexican towns. The attitudes of the immigrants, culminating in the Fredonian Rebellion's failed secession attempt in 1827, alarmed Mexican officials.

>Mexico didn't even give a fuck about the illegals
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/General_Colonization_Law#Results_and_modifications
>The Law of April 6, 1830 rescinded all empresario contracts that had not been completed and prohibited Americans from settling in any Mexican territory adjacent to the United States. Secretary of State Lucas Alamán, who wrote the 1830 law, said that "Texas will be lost for this Republic if adequate measures to save it are not taken. ... Where others send invading armies ... [the Americans] send their colonists"
>In Arizona and California some were land speculators who seized land illegally and gave it to their friends and relatives.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Law_of_April_6,_1830
>The ban and other measures did not stop U.S. citizens from migrating to Texas by the thousands. By 1834, it was estimated that over 30,000 Anglos lived in Texas, compared to only 7,800 Mexicans.

And lastly.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Texas_Declaration_of_Independence#Signatories
>Sixty men signed the Texas Declaration of Independence. Three of them were born in Mexico. Fifty-seven of the sixty moved to Texas from the United States. Ten of them had lived in Texas for more than six years, while one-quarter of them had been in the province for less than a year. This is significant, because it indicates that the majority of signatories had moved to Texas after the Law of April 6, 1830, banning immigration, had taken effect, meaning that the majority were legally citizens of the United States, occupying Texas illegally.

>that the majority were legally citizens of the United States, occupying Texas illegally.
