Texas wasn't annexed, it joined the USA by treaty, which is why the state flag flies at the same height as the U.S. flag when on side-by-side flagpoles.

Tyler and everyone else was afraid that the treaty would mean a war with Mexico, which in fact DID occur within months.

Texas wasn't the only issue between the USA and Mexico, as there were problems with Southern California too, but Texas was the biggest and final straw on the camel's back.

The Mexican-American war began when Mexican artillery opened up on Fort Texas, in Brownsville, from across the Rio Grande, in Matamoros, starting a six-day siege and war with the USA.

Tyler was right.

Why did Mexican officials have been upset by the annexation of Texas by the US?

Texas used to belong to Mexico. When Texas gained independence from Mexico, it became its own country, essentially. Texas wanted to become a part of the United States, but Mexico was opposed because: (a) Mexico knew that it had a better chance of reclaiming Texas if it only had to fight a Texas military as opposed to a U.S. military. (b) Mexico was very opposed to slavery. If Texas was going to be annexed, the U.S. would make it a slave state, meaning slavery could exist in Texas, which Mexico didn't like.
