In a way, I say they did and didn’t have the right. I say they did have the right because the people of Texas wanted to break away from Mexico & be independent from them. They wanted to become a part of the United States. I say they didn’t have the right because since Texas was a part of Mexico, they owned the rights to Texas. Also, it would’ve sparked another Civil War.
In my opinion U.S settlers in Texas had no right to break away. If they made an agreement that they would convert to becoming a Mexico citizen, then it is only fair that they go through with their agreement since Mexico went through with their part. The Mexicans promised them tax free land, and was committed to their promise. So no I do not think that the U.S. settlers in Texas had the right to break away. That’s just like if I told someone I would pay their gas bill for a year if they did my chores, and they decide that they were not going to do them after I already paid a year worth of their gas bill, that would make me highly upset.
I say no because Mexico give the Texans Land to live on & to help feed their families.They signed an agreements & since Texas was a part of Mexico, they were now US-Mexicans. They had to learn the rules as every other citizen of Mexico.So i say no because they made a deal.
