See Explanation for James K Polk's 3 Part Plan during the Mexican-American War.


The Mexican forces would be driven out of the disputed region in Texas by the American troops, who would also secure the borders.

California and New Mexico would be taken for the United States.

The capital of Mexico, Mexico City, would be taken by the American troops.

Hope this helps!
