Did us steal Texas from Mexico?
The U.S did not steal Texas from Mexico because when Texas gained their independence they became a nation, The Republic of Texas. Texas knew that Mexico was trying to get Texas back so they decided to join the United States. The United States then Annexed Texas to become one of the U.S States. However the documents Santa Anna signed to give Independence to Texas were null and void. The reason being was that because Santa Anna was a prisoner of war he no longer was in charge of Mexico so any promises made were not valid. Santa Anna knew this and so he signed the treaty to be released. The only problem was then that the United States Annexed The Republic of Texas. However other issues came up regarding the border of Texas which Mexico did not agree to. This began the Mexican-American. And the U.S used the war to take Mexico's territory Which consists of California, Oregon,Washington, Montana, Idaho, Utah, Wyoming, Arizona, New Mexico, and Colorado. So with that being said U.S never stole Texas but the Republic of Texas never truthfully gained their independence. It was more like the Settlers took Texas from Mexico to hand it over to the U.S.
Texas was originally part of Mexico. I believe Texas wanted to be its own country. The US claimed Texas after the war between the US and Mexico.
Mostly they disagreed with the US having Texas.

Texas had already seceded from Mexico during the Texas Revolution (1835-1836), but it became part of the US when it was admitted to the Union in 1845.
Mexico; as Texas had been a state of Mexico before it declared independence in 1836 because of this it's annexation into the US in 1848 meant that Mexico wouldn't be able to recover Texas. The issue of Texas also caused the American-Mexican War 1846-48 in which Mexico lost California, Nevada, Arizona and New Mexico to the US.
Texas used to belong to Spain when Spain ruled Mexico. It then belonged to Mexico when Mexico got independence. The US officially won Texas from Mexico in the Mexican-American War.

The entry of Texas into the Union brought US forces face to face with Mexico. The US accused Mexico with territorial incursions, providing the US with a pretext for the Mexican War of 1846- 48. The war ended when US General Winfield Scott captured Mexico City. The ensuing peace treaty called for Mexico to renounce all claims to Texas and Mexico had to cede to the US California and vast areas in what is now… Read More
