The Zimmerman Telegram was a secret January 1917 communication from the German Government to the Mexican Government proposing an alliance between them. The German reasoning was that an alliance would prompt some American Forces to be deployed south in the event that the USA entered into WWI to protect its southern borders from invasion by Mexico. In return, the Germans promised to restore Texas, Arizona and New Mexico to the Mexicans when they [the Germans] won the war. History shows that this did not eventuate.
