Ruben Salazar was born on March 3, 1928, in Ciudad Juarez, and moved to El Paso, Texas where he grew up. Ruben Salazar was a well-known journalist and activist who brought together Chicanos and Americans. He was one of the first non-white journalists in an all-white male profession and proved that he was just as capable of journalism as all of them. Salazar brought together Americans and Chicanos in many ways, he reported on Chicano events and put himself in between a very tense boundary. Salazar began as a journalist for The Los Angeles Times and became a foreign correspondent until a new more powerful Chicano movement brought him back. Salazar was the Times’ best choice to report on the movement and brought him back to Los Angeles to report
A maquiladora is a manufacturing plant based in Mexico where foreign companies import materials and equipment, on a duty free and tariff free basis, for the purposes of processing, manufacturing, or assembling goods which are then exported to other countries. The idea behind these maquiladoras promises a prosperous Mexican society. On paper, it really does seem like NAFTA is living up to expectations; creation of more jobs and a much less unemployment rate. On the surface, there seems to be nothing wrong with what’s going on in Mexico in terms of employment. Everyone has jobs and everyone is getting paid for these jobs, so what’s the issue? Despite all of this, the degrading and terrible working conditions imposed upon the maquiladora workers
Many non-Hispanic people tend to think that all Hispanics are Mexican. Mexicans make up almost two thirds of the Hispanic population in the United States, but that does not mean that there is any shortage in diversity among Hispanics. Being Hispanic makes it easy for me to identify the differences in Latin America culture. Hispanics are one of the most racially diverse ethnic groups in the world. Hispanics are light skinned, black with afro textured hair, Indigenous, Asian, Spanish, German, and Italian.
The United States, the country formed on immigrants is having a humanitarian crisis, with many kids from north, south and central america coming alone into the United States seeking for a better life. People leave their homeland and move to another countries for various reasons. Some just to avoid starvation and others wish to escape unbearable family situations.

For those interested in saving the economy and the environment of the United States of America and Mexico, then building a wall is not the answer. Walled borders will cause more harm than good. Furthermore, building a wall along the entire U.S.-Mexico border will affect the economy drastically and the environment.
Every revolution, from the American revolution of 1776 to the Mexican one of 1910, to current ones, share one thing in common: they start with an idea. This idea calls for some kind of change and seeks to overturn the current method of running things. It does this by protesting or fighting, and even though most people see rebellion as a fight for control of the government, my students need to see that all revolutions start with a thought.
Although the life of people right after the Agricultural Revolution was comparatively peaceful and classless, advanced societies eventually became more stratified and classes were more developed unfairly along with the first cities and places of which they were part.
The border has not just only been placed as a division but also politically it has been frame as a segregation of cultures and immigration incarceration. Those whom have cross it have been portrayed and labelled as criminals. At a great percent rate, many immigrates whom enter the united states arrive with a dream, with a desire to work, and see their family prosper never the less many of these immigrants work unwanted “White American” labor, with under pay wages and a constant fear to roam the streets in fear of a deportation. The border has always been criminalized because the United States do not want immigrants to enter the country many will argue, but if
The Mexican revolution started in 1910, and lasted for a decade, at least that is the common conception of the revolution, but as historians gain a deeper understanding of the revolution these common sense statements become murkier. The revolution was not a singular event that lasted ten years, and it was not really a singular revolution, and arguments could be made that in some places it was not really a revolution at all. This paper will argue the Mexican revolution was a complicated event that defies traditional explanations and the usual definition of a singular revolution. This paper will be organized the following way. First it will look at the cause of the revolution, looking at both events in the north and the south. Second, it will

Case Study: In the 1980s Mexico was marked by inflation which caused a decline in standard of living. Much of the government’s efforts in addressing the challenges were placed on privatizing state industries and moving toward trade liberalization. Mexico began to reverse its protectionist stance when the government was forced to declare that it was unable to repay its debts and had to default on its loans. The Mexican government implemented a series of measures to restructure the economy that included progressed trade liberalization. President Miguel de la Madrid of Mexico then took steps to open the economy. He did this by initiating procedures to replace import substitution policies with policies aimed at attracting foreign investment, lowering trade barriers, and making the country competitive in exports. In 1987, Mexico and the United States entered into a mutual understanding on trade and investment called the Framework of Principles and Procedures for Consultation Regarding Trade and Investment Relations. Prior to this agreement, there had been no legal framework to govern commercial relations between the two countries. There were two parts to the agreement, one served as a way to address trade issues, and the other established an agenda for the removal of trade barriers. Seven aspects were listed in the agenda for possible future discussions; textiles, agriculture, steel, investment, technology transfer and intellectual property, electronics, and information on the
