Mexican Immigration Since the formation of The United States of America, it has always been the country of immigrants, so the issues of immigration regulation processes are quite important. Today the main challenge for the country is the influx of Mexican migrants. No country in the world has given the United States so many immigrants, as Mexico. In fact, the migration of Mexicans to the United States originates from the late XIX century, when the development of agriculture and the construction of railroads in the southern United States demanded additional influx of cheap labor. In the period of 1850-1880 years about 55 thousand Mexicans immigrated for the purpose of work in the US (WordPress 2011).
Complexity of the Masculine Role in the Border Culture “In the past twenty years the population of border cities has exploded largely as a result of migration from poor, rural areas of Mexico.” (Broughton 569) This has resulted in a drastic change in the landscape of the culture in these border cities. “The movement to and beyond the border has been shaped dramatically by gender. Men have consistently made up about 75 percent of border crossers from Mexico since 1970.” (Broughton 571) History Anzaldua describes the Battle of the Alamo as the turning point in history for the Anglos and Tejanos. She said, “The battle of the Alamo in which the Mexican forces vanquished the whites, became, for the whites, the symbol for the cowardly and villainous character of the Mexicans. It became a symbol that legitimized the white imperialist take over”.
Globalization is the process of increased interconnectedness among countries most notably in the areas of economics, politics, and culture. McDonald 's in Japan, French films being played in Minneapolis, and the United Nations, are all representations of globalization. The topic of globalization has become a hotly contested debate over the past two decades. In today’s marketplace conducting business internationally is as much of a defensive play as an offensive play. In examining the upside of going global, consider the sheer size of international markets as contrasted with the size of the domestic market and you will likely find that the majority of your potential customers live abroad.

In the absence of economical opportunities citizens from different social economic background have been motivated to migrate to a number of first world countries, where they believe the opportunity for personal development and advancement is more feasible. Countries like the United Kingdom, the United States and other first world countries have seen an increase influx of immigrants from second and third world countries. Consequently, in the past few years deportation of immigrants from first world countries has been on the increase with the receiving country being incapable of putting proper control methods in place to accommodate these returning residents. In 1990 there were 119,000 residents who were born in Trinidad and Tobago living in the United States, up from 66,000 in 1980. The number of migrants in 2000 was 41,000.
The beautiful, small country of Belize is located in Central America between Guatemala and Mexico; the unfortunate reality, however, is the identity crisis that Belize struggles with. Belize identifies economically and culturally with the Caribbean Islands despite its residence in Central America due to the ever changing cultural diversity it faces (The Central America Fact Book 177). The population of Belize, comprised of 160,000 inhabitants, has a vibrant mixture of several ethnic backgrounds, from Native Americans to German speaking citizens. The country is largely inhabited by mixed European and black descendants, known as Creoles. Creoles and Spanish-speaking mestizos, are two of the larger ethnic groups that make most of the population of Belize.
