Surprisingly enough it's not actually a conversation I've ever had with anyone. No one I know really cares either way. Even the people I know that are from Mexico, Mexican born. In fact if anything they like Mexico more.
One woman at work who's from California actually hates that she's from Cali, and persists that she's actually Mexican, because that's the culture she was surrounded by growing up, so it almost becomes like this weird street cred thing where you're not actually Hispanic unless you're from Mexico proper.
I've never actually known someone to unironically say Arizona, or California, or Texas should be Mexico again. I think if it happened I'd just remind them it was Spain's, and the only languages they actually know are white European ones.
I know that'd set 'em off.
