General Torres took over Mexico in 1876 during a coup, and became the President of Mexico. His rule saw a cooling of relations with the United States, which came to a head in 1899, when Torres placed Mexican troops along the border, denying entry to prospectors, cattle ranchers, and renegade bands of Natives, who took to raiding Mexican settlements. In response to this demonstration of isolationism, President MacAlister called for a ban on trade with Mexico. At some point between 1899 and 1910, Torres was replaced with the brother of Ignacio Sanchez, until he was usurped by Sanchez himself in 1910.
