Flash! News from the Contemporary Students of the North

...also known as Estudiantes Contemporaneos del Norte, students at the University of New Mexico, who, along with Chicano Studies professor Charles Truxillo, tout the "...Inevitability of a Mexicano Nation in the American Southwest and Northern Mexico."

Openly promoting this idea, the site, hosted on a taxpayer-funded university web server, contains a fascinating series of maps and essays called "Evolution of El Norte" that shows the anticipated progression from the indigenous land of 1000 A.D to a projected "Republica del Norte" in 2080 A.D. That last map is inconspicuously linked off the 2050 A.D. map, not off the Evolution of El Norte page. Guess they don't want to scare folks.

Wonder why.
