Why do Americans see every Hispanic person as a Mexican?

It doesn’t matter where they are from, they (not including hispanic americans) always ask them if they are mexican or what part of Mexico they’re from. Now, if they tell them first " I’m from——-" some of them will actually say: So, what part of Mexico is that at? Or Do you speak puerto rican, mexican, etc.?
Now remember, this also includes Americans stationed or living abroad in Europe. Some visit Spain are kinda shocked that spanish is spoken their. And still they ask hispanics there if they are Mexican.
