The issue was about the drawing of the border line. Mexico felt it should be along one river when the US felt it should be at the RIO GRANDE river. The river the Mexicans wanted to use a river that would have given them more land and water. In the end the Rio Grande became the border line. -- Dont know if it helps.

Texas, which was part of Mexico, had few set­tlers. Although the land was good for farming, people feared attacks by Native Americans. Hoping to improve its economy, Mexico loosened trade restrictions between its northernmost areas-present-day California, New Mexico, and Texas-and the United States. It also encouraged Americans to settle in Texas. In the early 1820s, many Americans settled in Texas. Called Anglos, they soon outnumbered the Tejanos, or Mexican settlers. Stephen F. Austin was a leader of the Anglo community. As the number of Anglos grew and the community thrived, many in the United States considered making Texas part of their country. Anglos had disagreements with the Mexican government. Mexico had banned slavery, but the Anglo settlers-many from the South-wanted to keep their slaves. In 1830, Mexico banned Anglo immigration to Texas. When Austin convinced Mexican leaders to drop the ban, large numbers of Americans again streamed in. While Austin tried to obtain greater self-government for Texas, the Mexican leader, Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna, overthrew the Mexican constitution. Austin returned to Texas and called for Texans to arm themselves. Santa Anna led an army north and defeated a small garrison of Texans at the Alamo. Meanwhile, Texans met and declared inde­pendence. After winning the Battle of San Jacinto, Texans forced Santa Anna to sign a treaty granting them independence. Texans wanted to join the United States, but New Englanders opposed the addition of another slave state to the Union. In 1845, Texas finally was annexed, or incorporated, into the United States. This infuriated the Mexican government. President James K. Polk was determined to end the Texas dispute and obtain even more land from Mexico. He offered to buy Texas, California, and New Mexico, but Mexico did not accept. Polk decided to provoke a war. He ordered soldiers to march from Texas to block the Rio Grande-an area that Mexico claimed as its own. The debate in Congress was fierce. Many Northerners disliked Polk's actions, seeing them as an excuse to extend slavery. Southerners who opposed obtaining more Mexican land became sup­porters of Polk once extending slavery became part of the debate. Meanwhile, the Mexicans attacked American soldiers in Texas. Polk asked Congress to declare war, which it did.
