With a lot of buzz in the world about American Mexican Wall, let’s have a look at the beginning of this dispute.
At the point when Mexico got freedom from Spain in 1821, Texas was a part of Mexico. Americans and different settlers came into Texas when Mexico permitted non-Spanish pioneers to settle there. After numerous settlers came to Texas, debates prompted the Texas Revolution wherein 1836 Texas moved toward becoming independent. Mexico wouldn’t perceive the republic of Texas, as an autonomous nation. Texas before long solicited to turn into a state from the United States.

In 1845, the United States attached to Texas. But Mexico still did not perceive its autonomy or perceive the extension by the U.S. The United States offered to purchase from Mexico the land stretching out from Texas to the Pacific Ocean, however, Mexico Wanted to keep that immense territory.
In 1846, an argument about the Border among Texas and Mexico brought about outfitted clash, and the Mexican–American War started. Subsequent to offering to purchase the region, Polk moved U.S. troops into a spot that Mexico said was not in Texas, yet rather part of the Mexican province of Coahuila. The Mexican armed force assaulted them.
The fundamental reason for the war was the westbound extension of the United States. All through the nineteenth century, Americans believed it was their entitlement to extend westward. At the time they accepted they could overcome the individuals officially living on the land and take it for the United States. Southerners needed to see more slave states.
