    Mexico just gained their independence from Spain in 1821. Mexico was in turmoil and they tried many different political systems that didn’t work for them. They were still undecided what to do when they asked Santa Anna to come back to help them against the US. But they didn’t trust him. In the end the US won the war with Mexico (which Mexico never declared war) and paid them $15 million dollars for the territory of Texas, Arizona, New Mexico and California with bits of other states also.

Maybe someone else can help you with that one.
