Mexican cave relics show earlier arrival of humans in North America than thought

Excavations in Chiquihuite Cave in northern Mexico show evidence of humans from at least around 26,500 years ago, a 15,000 years earlier than previous estimates. Scientists say the caves were used as a winter shelter for short periods of time but no human DNA are recovered from the cave. Professor Tom Dillehay of Vanderbilt Univ. says he suspects the artifacts aren’t more than 20,000 years old.

I knew it. Our native Americans were illegal immigrants.

Bobby.....explain how someone can be 'illegal' when there are NO LAWS. Completely irrelevant and erroneous point.

More proof that everyone in the Americas came from somewhere else. Indian tribes aren't any more indigenous than any other native-born American. They were here before the Europeans but they claimed land that didn't belong to them, too.
