The Mexican Border conflict has been an issue between Mexico and the United States ever since the Mexican-American War which was April 25, 1846 to February 2, 1848. 
During the time period between 1910 to 1920, the Mexican Revolution was a continuing issue, which brought the United States into military conflict for various reasons during this period. 

Here are some articles I came across while researching World War I veterans.  The articles vary on the issues from the violence along the border to the labor situation and how it was dealt with at the time.  The last article talks about purchasing a portion of land at the bottom of California and possible Mexican connection supporting Germany during World War I

Veterans such as Harry Doremus and Eugene Breen served in the military during the Mexican Border Conflicts before their service during World War I.
