Mier Y Teran "Short Biography"
What Was In His Report
In his report he recommended that strong measures are taken against the United States gaining Texas. He suggested additional fortress surrounding Texas, closer trade ties with Mexico, and he encouraged more Mexican and European settlers to come to Texas. This concluded that most Americans refuse to become citizens, and try to remove themselves from Mexico.
Report Of 1828
The report that de did in 1828 enacted the Law Of April 6th. This law doesn't allow any more americans to migrate into Texas, places taxes on goods coming into Texas from the U.S., doesn't allow slaves from entering Texas from the U.S., and deploys Mexican troops for permanent duty station in Texas.
Lorenzo de Zavala described Terán as follows:Mier y Terán is one of the personages who has most distinguished himself by his knowledge, his patriotic services, and his constant application to study. Of all the former patriots and Mexican independents, he is perhaps the least frank and most difficult to become acquainted with. Whether by a distrust which he feels for others or whether he wishes to appear incomprehensible, there is noted in his conversation a certain reserve, an obscurity, which does not proceed from any lack of capacity to express himself. The manner in which he dissolved the congress at Tehuacán explains his character. Just the same, he is not a man of strong will, although he would thus appear at times. This reserve, this ambiguity, does not invite the confidences of friendship, nor of parties; and perhaps explains why Terán has neither friends nor party.
