The US/ Mexico border is a prime example of the struggles that this binational environment must deal with everyday. Surrounding residents must manage to endure a harsh living environment, rapid growth, and economic integration. Such conflicts that arise from the border is, hazardous waste, limited water supplies, depletion of the groundwater, air and water pollutions, and the conservation of natural ecosystems. Many of us do not realize the struggles of life along the border, this paper is here to help bring these issues into the spotlight in hopes of finding a solution. The two - thousand-mile-long border is the home to millions of people who share water, air, land, and ecosystems.
41). These drug cartels present a difficult problem in that they not only import illegal drugs, but they often are in dispute over both territory and police ownership (Warner, p. 42). These cartels are smuggling drugs across the border from many different regions of the world and present a very difficult situation for law enforcement. This may be due in part to their intimate knowledge of the area they operate in, as well as that of their connection to gangs, which they utilize to assist in cross-border movement. The current number of both law enforcement agents and law enforcement agencies along the border is not sufficient in either numbers or strength to curtail these illicit
After the influx of the Spanish in the seventeenth century, much of the native population yielded to illness. How did the ones who survived find success and what did the Spanish do to develop the county? The Natives ended up moving away or intermarried with the Europeans. The Spanish increased the population by giving fifty-nine leagues of ground on the north bank of the Rio Grande (including all of the section of Brownsville) to José Salvador de la Garza in 1781.
As the extensive Chacoan system collapsed, people increasingly migrated to Mesa Verde, causing major population growth in the area. This led to a depleted source of wildlife and space while also forcing the Puebloans to make more pueblos in an attempt to fit the overflow of people. While the Puebloans are mainly known for their cliff dwellings in Mesa Verde they were also known for their advanced astrology and agriculture methods and
There have been many events that shaped the history on Mexico. The majority of the times it always comes at the expense of a human life. The Mexican American War in 1846 not only changed Mexico geographically but also let to many casualties. The drug cartels that are in search of power and land also take the lives of many in order for them to obtain their power. These are a couple of events that have shaped the history if Mexico, but in my opinion on of the most important one is the Cristeros War.
The poor agriculture management has wasted the fertile lands in the heart of southern areas causing more trouble for the poor people so there was a wave of migration from areas to west in search of cheap land and fertile soil. There was another lot who bought land illegally from Indians in the west in a hope to sell it at a high price which failed to reach the purpose. 5- What were the primary causes and outcomes of the U.S.-Mexican War (1846-48)?
The United States war with Mexico continues to be a divisive topic due to the unjust and just reasons being argued. The Mexican & American War was the war between Mexico and the United States began because of disputed territory and Mexico shedding “American blood upon the American soil” although “American blood” wasn’t actually shed on “American soil.” The disputed territory was the area between the Nueces River and the Rio Grande that Mexico and the United States both claimed. It was also the area where 16 American soldiers were killed sparking the idea of the Declaration of War. The war against Mexico was unjustifiable because it went against the constitution, Texas was in the wrong, and the war was based on false pretense.
The terrible economy had a huge impact on the American people. When president Ronald Reagan took over in 1981, the economy had been in the worst condition since the Great Depression (Shmoop Editorial Team).The crime rate increased drastically because of how bad the economy was. Violence, theft, and murder numbers increased significantly in areas where there were gangs and drugs. Overall, crime levels was so high that Congress had passed drug laws resulting in a rise in the number of U.S. prisoners (Woog
The U.S. is very much involved with Mexico and its cross border transaction of goods and services and of worldwide international flow, between the U.S., Mexico and Canada. This was signed in 1994’s, which was called the north American Free Trade Agreement. There are many issues going on at the Mexican border, such as immigrants entering America and not having a place to stay and thinking everything would come to their hands. As the article said “On the US side, the population is predominantly of Spanish origin, young, and poor (35% live under the officially defined poverty level),” this shows that this can affect the American economy in a negative way due to not being able to provide health care and etc. The border population has gowned in Mexico by a lot and is expected to double by year 2020.
Life in Mexico can be very harsh, many people outside of Mexico believe life in the country isn’t as bad as it seems. Over the years the country has changed but still face many problems. The Mexican drug war is still a highly supplied conflict between the Mexican army and drug cartels in Mexico. The country has been one of the main suppliers of illegal drugs that causes discrimination, drug trafficking and many deaths yearly. The question is, how has life in Mexico changed before and after the war on drugs?
With westward expansion becoming more popular, and with people thinking it was their manifest destiny-or God given fate to go west, populations increased. But conflict arose with our southern neighbor Mexico. This conflict could’ve been prevented, or resolved, but instead it grew worse. This conflict is often called the “Mexican American War” but in Mexico it is called the “US Invasion”. On April 24th, 1836 63 American men and officers went just south of the Rio Grande when Mexico attacked.
Texas Declaration of Independence were wrote in March 2, 1836. There are four authors of Texas DOI, appointed by the president of the Tejas, Richard Ellis.

He married Margaret Vance on June 12, 1826. After, he began to practice law between September 1834 - November 1835.
Mexico Expansion & Immigration Mexico didn’t have much to offer to the people of Mexico due to the fact that they their country wasn’t good economically. Everyone had a hard time when they made their way across the lands into America for better resources and a new start. All the immigrants was given a hard time as they live their life in the their new home. So from 1830s to 1850s, Mexican immigrated from Mexico to California for many different reason because it caused a major impact within American History because it forced the US through tough times.
