Explanation:

C is the only logical answer. They would not have wanted British to have anything to do with US soil and there is no reason for them to protect Latin America.

C)The United States sought to expand its borders into Spanish territories.

Explanation:

"America for americans", or the Monroe Doctrine was the statement by the president Jason Monroe, that said that the United States would see as a direct attack on our safety and independence the interference of any European power on the affairs of free territories on the American continent soil and will oppose any country that would try to expand their current existant colonies, this basically meant that the US governmet would take matter in protecting American territories from being conquered and colonized by European powers.

The United States is seeking to expand its borders into Spanish territories.

Explanation:

The United States has endeavoured and succeeded in achieving its territorial expansion at the expense of Spain. The United States has had a problem with runaway slaves who have often resorted to Spanish-controlled territory, more precisely Florida. The government pointed to this problem, but the results only happened when General Andrew Jackson, with his troops, entered Florida territory and overthrew the Spanish governor.

Spain was at that moment preoccupied with the Latin American revolts. They agreed to leave Florida to America. In return, the US promised not to claim Texas and pay the debt owed to US citizens. The amount was five million dollars, all of which happened in 1819.

The answer is: C, The United States sought to expand its borders into Spanish territories.

Explanation:

The Monroe Administration flourished under James Monroe, the fifth President of the United States. Under his administration, he strengthened the "American Foreign Policy" by establishing the "Monroe Doctrine." This doctrine prevented the Europeans from expanding their territories towards the Western Hemisphere as well as South America (and other parts of the USA). The reason behind this was that the USA wanted to expand its borders into Spanish territories. The doctrine then strengthened the relationship between the USA and South and Central America.

As a result, the USA used the doctrine as an opportunity to venture into Latin America.

Thus, this explains the answer.
