If Fernando, The 53 yr old gas company employee and zone regular were to appear in the 1990’s in Chiapas, Mexico he would most likely not be a gas company employee or a zone regular anymore.

This group rebelled against the government.
IMROHOROG˘ LU etal (2004) point out that "expenditures on police protection have increased from 0.6 percent of GDP in 1980 to 0.7 percent of GDP in 1996." (pp.708) From the 1980s to 20th century, Mexico and United States had an advance in police enforcements and this made the people living in the country feel more safe and protected. However, the crime rate in Mexico went up because the increase in police officers caused the citizens to gain more trust and report the crimes. On the other hand, the crime rate in United States went down because the increase in police officers resulted in more efficient monitoring of the
Even worse 24% of the nation’s poor in Mexico lives in extreme poverty, on less than 1 dollar per day. Approximately 104 million Mexicans fit into these categories. It is no wonder that so many Mexicans try to enter the United States illegally. Many of them know that they will make more in one hour in the United States than they would make in a day in Mexico. There is also the impact on our economy.
In the past, immigrants have come to this county through Ellis Island or an airport, but our current migratory group comes from south of our borders. Huntington states that our relationship with Mexican immigrants is unique due to our country’s geographical location and economic differences. The U.S. News states that “sociologists and others have [proven that] Mexican immigrants are assimilating to life in the United States less successfully than other immigrants” (Schulte). Furthermore, because the United States is a first world country that neighbors a third world country, Mexican citizens have an easier access to the U.S. than other immigrants do. Bringing over not only their bodies but also their economic instability, they make it difficult for other immigrants to naturalize in our country.
Mexican America Discrimination United States has been the land of opportunities, but because of color, race and creed Mexicans have been discriminated against. The opportunity for Mexican Americans has been limited in economic opportunity and social and political advantage. It is not a secret that the Mexicans come to the United States in search of better opportunities for themselves and their families. Discrimination has still remained persistent throughout the years. One of the big reasons why there is a big discrimination is it due to the high numbers of Mexicans crossing the border illegally.
The poverty rates in Mexico continue to rise and crime is high. Unlike Puerto Ricans, Mexican Americans have no “free pass” to access the United States. Scores of Mexican, Cubans and Central-South Americans have lost there lives trying to enter into the United States for the chance of a better existence. Puerto Ricans The American Fact Finder provided by the U.S. Census Bureau website reports approximately 3,987,947 people in the United States during 2006 are Puerto Ricans.

But the Sate is trying to argue that the state is just trying to help the federal law by making more action because it is not doing enough in Arizona State. The law intends to do more good than harm. The state is just trying to find a more simple way to protect their border making the states safer by preventing illegal aliens to come in and make their harm in our society, I think that in the end it does more harm than good. With the whole debate, it gets to have many effects in many different things I already mentioned, even in politics. Is true that Arizona and many other states have been struggling with the illegal immigrants but there can be some other healthier way to prevent this from happening.
The U.S. Border Patrol Abstract The Mexican border poses a significant threat to the United States from international terrorism, drug and gun smuggling, and undocumented aliens. With the high number of drugs being smuggled from Mexico into the United States Law Enforcement Agencies throughout the United States are maxed out with the use of their resources to interdict the drugs before they are sold or used on the streets. The drugs that are interdicted are just a fraction of what actually makes it across the border. One specific threat is the profits from drug sales end up funding or supporting terror groups or individuals. Another issue that is very alarming is the Jihadist materials found along the Mexico/U.S.
Historically, Mexico was a country in a political struggle between the Mexican people and the dictatorship of their President. The Mexican revolution began in 1910 and sparked a fight for land reform and improved economic conditions. It lasted for 11 miserable years and left the Mexican economy devastated and beyond repair. The trend continued after the Mexican Constitution of 1917, restricting land ownership. “As a result, many farmers and farm laborers (particularly given the typically large families they must support) gravitated towards Mexico’s cities in search of great opportunities – or looked to the United States (Hauser,

This is due to the fact that immigrants are willing the do odd jobs that no one wants, which brings them money and gives them a better opportunity in life what some may say is the American life. 14.5 million, about half of the nation’s 28.4 million foreign-born residents were born in Latin America, but out of all those people those people 70% are illegal immigrants who are from Mexico. This is a very large number and this shows the impact that
