Rejection Because of Race: Albert J. Beveridge and Nuevo Mexico's Struggle for Statehood, 1902-1903
de la Cruz, Jesse
Aztlan, 7, 1, 79-97, Spr 76
Senator Beveridge led the opposition to statehood for New Mexico and Arizona. The statehood measure possessed all the necessary requirements for passage, yet it failed. The pro-statehood faction charged that the territories were being denied entry into the Union mainly because of the large Spanish speaking population found within their borders. (NQ)
