ABSTRACT
The article chronicles the settlement of the territorial dispute between the U.S. and Mexico on January 14, 1963.

Finally, in 1911, recommendations were made that the U.S. When John Kennedy became President he ordered the State Department to move on the old problem. Kennedy was dead before the official end of the border dispute.
