    The U.S. Southwest is a region of the nation, not a territory like various islands in the Pacific.  As for how many Hispanics are residing in the American Southwest (Arizona, New Mexico, west Texas, southern California, maybe even parts of Oklahoma, Utah and Nevada) you can go to city-data.com and look up various cities in those states and it will tell you the % population of the racial groups that live there.  There probably are more people of Hispanic origin, and even illegal aliens (from south of the boarder) than in many other parts of the country, since it's the first states they enter into when crossing the border.  But they haven't really "retaken" it, as in claimed it for Mexico and seized the land and pay taxes to the Mexican government for it.  Nope, it's still the U.S.A.

    No.

    Where I live, it is the Gadsden Purchase, we Paid Mexico $$ for it. No one can legally retake it except maybe the original Yaqui, Tohono O'odham, and Chiricahua Apache Indians who Actually Owned it.

    Much of SW was won in US-Mexican wars of 1847, yes.

    By demography?  Demography is the study of statistics.

    84% of all statistics are made up on the spot out of thin air.  78.6% of people know that.

    Wrong category Jose'

    The democrats are allowing (welcoming) illegal entry so they can get the illegal's eventual vote.

    Illegals should go back to where they came from.  They are thieves.

    The US Constitution would not provide for such an ideology. They would nuke those states and cities involved before surrendering territory to an enemy of the State, foreign or domestic.

    They make such a claim by stereotyping people that look Hispanic as Mexican invaders. Retake: Mexico lost the land and it's people. Those people are Americans.

    The answer is ... zero.  The Southwest is sovereign territory of the United States.  If it is populated by Hispanics, people of Mexican descent, or people of Irish descent, it is sovereign American territory.
