    They become a Mexican citizen...... the ethnonym Hispanic or Latino to refer to "a person of Cuban, Mexican, Puerto Rican, South or Central American, or other Spanish culture or origin regardless of race" and states that Hispanics or Latinos can be of any race, any ancestry, any ethnicity.

    Ehhhh....sort of.

    Hispanic is a bit of an unusual ethnic category. It is more like saying 'Francophone' in that Hispanic refers to someone from a country that speaks Spanish and/or has a historical connection to Spain (ie one of it's former colonies). There are African descended people who are considered Hispanic. Some Europeans descended, some Mayan or Incan descended, and so on.

    So if you NEWLY moved to Mexico you're not really FROM there, but once your family was there for a few generations, yes I think they WOULD be considered Hispanic.
