Why dont we see more Mexican American players on the US MNT?

I grew up in California and played soccer from the time I was 6 until I was 19 for verious Class 1 travel teams, ODP Teams and of course my High school, it would be safe to say that that my teams were at least 80% latino, but when I look at the US MNT it looks 90% white, then 8% black, and 2% latino...........Why?

I understand that no one will have the end all, be all anwser to this question, But you're thoughts would be great

because of the rivalry Mexico and US have... Even if you are born here and are mexican, Mostly likely you would decided to play for mexico.

Look at edgar castillo... he was born in the states but plays for the mexican national team.

yeah, but I dont like that. if you were born in the U.S. and raised in the U.S. you're AMERICAN. just cuz you have family in Mexico and you're parents are mexican Doesnt make you Mexican.

I have family in Ireland and it doesnt make me Irish
