Best Answer

Borders and Bargains. The US had failed in its diplomatic efforts to obtain the purchase of the Mexican States of Alta California and Nuevo Mexico and Mexico had informed the US that annexing Tejas would be considered an Act of War.

The US annexed Texas despite this threat, but Mexico failed to declare war and instead only broke off diplomatic relations with the United States.
