Mr. Russell, no part of what is now Mexico was bought/stolen from the U.S. Many of the people living in TX, AZ, NM & CA at the time it became part of the U.S. are considered Latinos. Puerto Ricans are U.S. citizens. If you still haven’t gotten the message, there is a much more sizable Latino population in the U.S. than gringo population in Mexico. I think Alcaraz is questioning the underrepresentation of Latinos relative to the proportion of the population they compose.
