They are based on the boundaries with that both nations fixed the border, through the treaties of Guadalupe-Hidalgo, and the one of the Mesilla. (Gadsden)

The United States owes Mexico about 8,935 hectares of territory, stolen by mistakes of distribution in the lands of the border that they share, according to the expert report by Portillo and Young, S.C., a firm of consulting engineers.

The study, carried out using GPS technology and contracted by Senator Patricio Martínez, is based on the boundaries that both nations used to set the border, through the treaties of Guadalupe-Hidalgo, and that of the Mesilla.

"On the border of Mexico with the United States, in the Juárez-El Paso area, in the state of Chihuahua and where there is a difference of 1,500 meters by 50 kilometers, which shows a difference of 8 thousand hectares, which was subtracted from the national territory, which are now in the state of New Mexico and should be in the state of Chihuahua, "said the senator,

Patricio Martinez explained that the difference in territory has already been claimed by Mexico since the time of President Porfirio Díaz, but the Foreign Ministry (SRE) did not follow up diplomatic notes sent to the US.

"What can follow is that there is a judicial issue, and it would not be the first time that Mexico presented a case of this nature before the international courts. It already did, a very sound case, the case of the Chamizal, where the Rio Bravo diverted 240 hectares of Mexico and left them on the side of the United States.

The results of the expert report have already been submitted to the Senate Board. The PRI legislator said that this chamber, nor any instance of the Mexican state or society, can not be ignored in the loss of 436 kilometers on the Mexican border.
