they resent it because the Americans at least half of their land. they didnt have to start a war for some stupid pieces of land. they left them in poverty after the war. they lost their houses, belongings, streets, churches, historical monuments, and even the ones they loved. it caused Mexico to live through their depression. the Americans caused a war for their belief of manifest destiny and they couldn't respect the answer the Mexican government gave Polk when they told him to leave and that they could not buy the land they wanted. they respected their belief but not the decision the Mexicans made.
