That professor, the University of New Mexico's Charles Truxillo, a widely quoted Chicano studies activist, believes that, by 2080, the U.S. Southwest and Northern Mexico will secede from their respective countries and form a República del Norte. "There is a growing fusion, a reviving of connections", Truxillo said in a fall 2000 interview. "Southwest Chicanos and Norteño Mexicanos are becoming one people again."

Unfortunately for Truxillo's dreams of reviving a mythic Aztlan empire (another moniker for the feared República to come), little public support exists on either side of the border for overthrowing the legacies of their English and Spanish colonial oppressors. Truxillo stokes Huntingtonian suspicions of a Mexican reconquista by asserting that Northern Mexico and the U.S. Southwest represents a "spiritual homeland" for migrants from Mexico and other Latin American countries.

Charles Truxillo suggests the "Republica del Norte," the Republic of the North, is "an inevitability."

He envisions it encompassing all of California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas and southern Colorado, plus the northern tier of Mexican states: Baja California, Sonora, Chihuahua, Coahuila, Nuevo León and Tamaulipas.
Along both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border "there is a growing fusion, a reviving of connections," Truxillo said. "Southwest Chicanos and Norteño Mexicanos are becoming one people again."
Truxillo, 47, has said the new country should be brought into being "by any means necessary," but recently said it was unlikely to be formed by civil war. Instead, its creation will be accomplished by the electoral pressure of the future majority Hispanic population in the region, he said.
