Why cant America take over Mexico and make it part of the US?

It seems we are everywhere else helping people but not Mexico. Would it solve a lot of illegal immigrant and drug trafficking problems.Is it because they don't have any oil? We are already paying for them. I'm just curious.

    Mexico DOES have oil. Lots of it. Mexico is blessed with as many natural resources as the United States. There is NO good reason Mexicans are so desperate they leave Mexico.

    Did you know the richest man in the world is Mexican?

    It is unfettered Modern corruption that has reduced Mexico to it's current state. Now the snake is eating its own tail since it has eaten everything else in sight.

    If you think our government is corrupt, you'd be knocked out by the corruption in Mexico. You'd be knocked out by the everyday corruption in Mexico and in most parts of the world.

    I think sealing the border (with a Berlin-wall type of barrier if necessary) would be the kindest thing for both the US and Mexico. Without the escape valve of the Mexican/American border, if unhappy and horrified and desperate Mexican citizens were forced to stay, they would erupt in an all out revolution and remake their country in a better way.

    No way. A huge influx of new citizens with little better than an 8th grade education would be detrimental to our society.

    @Ford Perfect. We didn't invade Texas or California. California was practically abandoned by Mexico and there were plenty of times where they could have taken claim to it. Texas fought a war of independence from Mexico and became a state later on.

    ????? REALLY? You're "just curious" and can't figure out for yourself that invading a country and occupying it agains the will of its people is WRONG, and ILLEGAL? Or is it that you don't care about right and wrong?

    You think it would SOLVE problems to invade Mexio, murder lots of its people, enslave the rest, and steal all their resources?

    What part of "Mass murder and theft are wrong" do you not get, exactly?

    Uh, we do NOT help every other country but Mexico. First, there are countries that don't need our aid. Second, we DO give aid to Mexico (and long have).

    What you mean by "We are already paying for them" is impossible to guess. The fact is, illegal immigrants give us much more than they take.

    Mexico is not a developed country. They are having a major problem with drugs.

    They have lots of oil. Check into the import figures.

    Have you ever been to Mexico?

    We will

    We are already in the process and we are taking over Canada as well

    It's going to be called the American Union. We will join the European Union, The African Union and soon to be Asian Union. Once all unions combine it will be one world one Government

    Seriously. Look it up. New World Order is in it's final stages.

    Canada and Mexico will not resist this Union because they're part of the whole sha bang

    We already have enough people to pay for with Obamacare. Add Mexico's people to it (officially,) and we will be bankrupt within half an hour.

    Oh good Lord -- we don't want to be responsible for them and their problems, we already give them more money than we should, and for what?

    I think the Mexican government might object.

    Why should we? We have enough problems with Obama, why add more headache?
