Enrique Krauze, Mexico and the United States

Monday, 10 April 2017

Enrique Krauze, one of Mexico’s leading intellectuals, reflects on the impact of the US-Mexican war of 1846: “The United States invasion of Mexico in 1846 inflicted a painful wound that, in the 170 years that followed, turned into a scar. Donald Trump has torn it open again…But the best and most just reparation would be American immigration reform that could open the road to citizenship for the descendants of those Mexicans who suffered the unjust loss of half their territory.”
