Texas, California, New Mexico, Arizona and a portion of Utah would today be a part of Mexico if it were not for the independence of Texas in 1835 and the U.S. – Mexican war of the 1847-1848. Many political activists in Mexico still see the U.S. as the single most important force dragging the country down and preventing its full development.
