The U.S. and Mexico Border

Read the following article about violence along the Mexico-Texas border from 1910-1920: https://refusingtoforget.org/the-history/ (Links to an external site.) (the article is about 10 pages long).

Questions: What was the relationship between Mexican Americans and Anglo Americans in border towns pre-1910s? How did the “Plan de San Diego” change this, in other words, what actions did the Texas Rangers and others take towards Mexican Americans? What was the general response towards the violence Mexican Americans faced?

To clarify, the “Plan de San Diego” did not really have that widespread of support. As the authors write, “The insurrections [from the ‘Plan de San Diego’] killed only a handful, but prompted indiscriminate reprisals.”
