So?
The US government paid to Mexico for lands that were part of Texas that would later become land within the state of New Mexico.
The US had already annexed half of what would become New Mexico when it annexed Texas. The western half of New Mexico was part of the purchase.

The Constitution limits importation of Slaves, and prohibits Slavery in the 13th Amendment. Taxing slaveholders as in taxing all their property slaves was no different. The Constitution very much ended slavery the 1867 14th Amendment, before that Slaves were freed by order of Lincoln during he Civil War.
States in the North especially those that began as religious colonies eradicated slavery as it didn't fit in their systems of beliefs.
No, the South was not fully restored when the 14th was ratified, and didn't have seats in Congress. The 14th was ratified 3 years before the South was released from Marshall law and Military command.
Reconstruction was over by Presidential order not with the passage of the 14 amendment.
You could not have gotten the accounts you present from any credible American History course or writings. Phila is the home for a lot of research on the Revolutionary and Civil War, right downtown is the cite of Ben Franklins' Library of Phila and a vault for historical documents and not to mention Independence Mall.

What was the point of all that? You just agreed with everything I said. BTW, Lincoln didn't end slavery with the Emancipation Proclamation. The 13th amendment ended slavery and it wasn't ratified until Dec. 6, 1865. The 14th amendment extended citizenship and equal protection from government and wasn't ratified until July of 1868.

Mexican War—(1846-1848):Treaty of Guadalupe-Hidalgo in 1848. These events brought within the control of the United States the future states of Texas, California, Nevada, New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, Washington, and Oregon, as well as portions of what would later become Oklahoma, Colorado, Kansas, Wyoming, and Montana.
Following Texas’ successful war of independence against Mexico in 1836, President Martin van Buren refrained from annexing Texas after the Mexicans threatened war. Accordingly, while the United States extended diplomatic recognition to Texas, it took no further action concerning annexation until 1844, when President John Tyler restarted negotiations with the Republic of Texas. His efforts culminated on April 12 in a Treaty of Annexation, an event that caused Mexico to sever diplomatic relations with United States. Tyler, however, lacked the votes in the Senate to ratify the treaty, and it was defeated by a wide margin in June. Shortly before he left office, Tyler tried again, this time through a joint resolution of both houses of Congress. With the support of President-elect Polk, Tyler managed to get the joint resolution passed on March 1, 1845, and Texas was admitted into the United States on December 29.
In July, 1845, Polk, who had been elected on a platform of expansionism, ordered the commander of the U.S. Army in Texas, Zachary Taylor, to move his forces into the disputed lands that lay between the Nueces and Rio Grande rivers. In November, Polk dispatched Congressman John Slidell to Mexico with instructions to negotiate the purchase of the disputed areas along the Texas-Mexican border, and the territory comprising the present-day states of New Mexico and California.
Under the terms of the treaty, Mexico ceded to the United States approximately 525,000 square miles (55% of its prewar territory) in exchange for a $15 million lump sum payment, and the assumption by the U.S. Government of up to $3.25 million worth of debts owed by Mexico to U.S. citizens.
While Polk would have preferred a more extensive annexation of Mexican territory, he realized that prolonging the war would have disastrous political consequences and decided to submit the treaty to the Senate for ratification. Although there was substantial opposition to the treaty within the Senate, on March 10, 1848, it passed by a razor-thin margin of 38 to 14.
The war had another significant outcome. On August 8, 1846, Congressman David Wilmot introduced a rider to an appropriations bill that stipulated that “neither slavery nor involuntary servitude shall ever exist” in any territory acquired by the United States in the war against Mexico. While Southern senators managed to block adoption of the so-called “Wilmot Proviso,” it nonetheless provoked a political firestorm. The question of whether slavery could expand throughout the United States continue to fester until the defeat of the Confederacy in 1865
You could have saved yourself a lot of cut and paste. It just backs up what I had said. Texas was already a state and the western land in Texas had already been annexed before the Mexican war. Disputed land was between the Nueces and Rio Grande rivers.

Yes, that part was forfeited by the Republic of Texas, not Mexico. It was already a US territory at the start of the Mexican War. The other half of, what will be later New Mexico, was purchased along with California, Arizona, Nevada.

It wasn't US to annex until defined by treaty and paid for.

And New Mexico was part of what was then Texas.

And Texas did not turn over this territory when it became a state.

And became New Mexico in 1850, two years after the treaty was signed.

Works Progress Administration
The Works Progress Administration (renamed in 1939 as the Work Projects Administration; WPA) was the largest and most ambitious New Deal agency, employing millions of unemployed people (mostly unskilled men) to carry out public works projects, including the construction of public buildings and roads.

There was a border dispute between Texas and the federal government as to where the state of Texas ended and the New Mexican territory began. But neither belonged to Mexico. Texas forfeited western lands in exchange for the federal government taking its debt. The land Texas forfeited to become a state wasn't defined until two years later.

It has been proven over, and over Barack Hussein Obama cannot tell the truth. He is a psychopath. He proves every day his illness is getting worse. That is why that slum landlord from Chicago, Valerie Jarrett is really the President, and when he says he doesn't know what is in the Obmacare bill he is telling the truth. They made it through the first term with just a few questions, now it is apparent he really doesn't know what is going on,
