Prior to the revolution, Mexicans were unhappy under the government of Porfirio Diaz. After the revolution, many decades of one-party rule continued in Mexico. There were some similar components between the Russian Revolution and the Mexican Revolution. Both of these revolutions were influenced by a system of ideas that would benefit the lower classes. They both started after disloyalty to an all-powerful political leader.
Mexico and Cuba underwent major revolutions led by rebels who opposed their current presidents. The revolutionaries in both countries were mainly concerned with the industrialization and modernization that was occurring within their countries. The uprisings resulted in the countries shared beliefs against foreign imperialism, against elites having so much control on their counties and push for land reforms. In the long run Mexico faired better after their revolution than Cuba. Cuba still experiences hostile tensions with the U.S. today and still practices rationing.

Porfirio Diaz was the dictator of Mexico, in the years of 1884 to 1911, who sought to modernize Mexico through a series of economic and social policies he had emplaced onto the country–the country consisted of the rural population and the prosperous upper class. Due to political stability, and lack of wealth–under the reign of Porfirio–there was commotion, especially amongst the middle and lower classes. Until Diaz took over and decided it was best to improve the economic stability of the country since the mexican economy was far underdeveloped. In Diaz’ journey for modernization, foreign investments originated from the implemented policies which would ultimately build Mexico back up and into a thriving country. Some Historians have assumed
Mexico’s drug cartels are the worst they have been in years, and all the problems stem from a lack of proper decision making from the government at every level . Since Colombia was taken away from the drug scene, Mexico’s cartels have made up for the slack and then some. Subsequently, cartels in Mexico also began to flourish at a time when Mexico was in the process of instituting a new form of government. Not only is Mexico trying to work out the kinks of their new democracy, but the cartels are pushing more drugs than ever before; Mexico needs to address this problem. To make matters worse, a number of Mexican officials are corrupt, unaccountable, or distrusted by the people.
During the mid 1800s, as America was expanding westward, the economy of the different regions in America boosted. The north based their economy off of the recently developed industries, whereas the south continued their work with agriculture and the production of cotton. The development of these two very different forms of business led to sectionalism, or the devotion to the advancement of one’s region as opposed to the country as whole. As more people immigrated to the US in the 1840s specifically from Ireland and Germany, America’s newfound industries were provided with unqualified and inexperienced employees who would work for very little pay. These immigrants were forced to move to the north because they didn’t have the money to buy land

Unauthorized Immigration has been one of the most controversial topics in the USA for decades. Since in the late 1800s, when the railroad that connected the U.S. border to the internal Mexico was built, U.S. employers have gained access to Mexican labor to a greater extent (Hanson 878). Later in the 1900s, especially after the Brocero Program in 1940, which allowed to recruit Mexican workers in order to fulfill year time contracts, migration to U.S. extended. U.S. employers tended to engage male and nearly uneducated migrants, who worked as farmers during the agriculture months and returned to Mexico after fulfilling their contracts (Hanson 878). Between 1954 and 1960, 300.000 to 450.000 migrants stepped onto U.S. grounds annually, therefore
