Mexico and the United States are countries that have several aspects to relate and compare the differences that exist between them. Each country has its own characteristics, and is a way of being able to identify to other countries. In this case, Mexico and United States are independent parents with an extensive history where we can know aspects of each one of them. Mexico is characterized by being a country of religious traditions and U.S. for being the first world power. In addition to the above, it is important to highlight the differences existing between the countries of Mexico and United Stated as well as their similarities.
This year’s election cycle brought heated debates and discussions about many things; “the wall”, free trade, NAFTA, immigration issues, borders security and policy issues. Regardless of which side of the political isle you stand, which way the political winds sway in Washington D.C., one thing is certain not to change with the election cycle, and that is, the actual physical border between The United States and Mexico. Therefore, if we can’t change that, and we can’t, then there needs to be solutions to problems that continue to exist between the two sovereign countries. Trade and Security are two of the most important factors for neighboring countries and they must not be ignored. Beyond just good political, diplomatic, and strategic vision it is important to understand there are cultural, education and diversity complexities which takes tremendous and often times delicate maneuvering to come together for the greater good of both economies and governments, as millions of people rely on successful trade agreements and security.
Mexico is beautiful warm country located in Central America. Mexico has a representative democratic republic, and are currently being run by Enrique Pena Nieto their current president. The criminal and civil laws between the united states and mexico very in many areas; this forces the differences and similarities in the way the court systems function.
In regards to the social/cultural approach to nationalism, Gellner states that nationalism is essentially the “general imposition of a high culture on society, where previously low cultures had taken up the lives of the majority”, showing that the culture belonging to one nation is distinct from that which belongs to any other. This also falls into accordance with the ethnosymbolist approach where the nation cannot be properly understood without taking their ethnic lineages into account. When looking at the neighboring states, the United States and Mexico, this is especially true. Examining their colonial roots and the legacies of their independence movements, both were radically different countries “in terms of social conditions, economics, politics and culture”.
During the Mexican Revolution there were many prominent figures that emerged during the long struggle. Some of the figures had a positive impact on the region, and some others a very negative impact on the people of Mexico and their quest for an uncorrupted government. One figure that stands out in the border region between Mexico and The United States during this time is General Francisco “Pancho” Villa. To understand Pancho Villa’s significant role during this uprising it is important to understand who Villa was prior to the revolution, and what acts lead to his rise to power.
It’s so sad that many are very scared for each other’s family members and are put in the situation where they have to think about what they are going to do. Several people have children people born here and if they are deported and have kids that are under 18 they will be they will be taken away from them and maybe even sent to child services since their parents won’t be able to do anything over there. What would all those innocent children do without their parents? The president’s wife is an immigrant herself, which really shows the irony and
But since they are immigrants they are not 100% sure they will be able to stay here. It is not ok for Trump to just generalize every immigrant as a criminal or as people who just cause problems. There is a total of 11.2 million of illegal immigrants in the U.S, and of those 11.2 only 177,960 are actual got deported back to their country because of a crime based on last year. Only 177,960 illegal immigrants that caused problems last year and Trump is already trying to send all of the back because according to him all immigrants are dangerous. Immigrants are not dangerous they are very hardworking people who have come to the united states to make a better life and globalize together. It is also not ok for my family to be scared and having to worry at all times. Me being a citizen of the United States it is scary having to be careful of where we go when we are with our full family. It has not been normal for our family since he signed that executive order because we have to be so careful with our family members. My school had to have a whole class period explaining to us our rights and what we should do in case I.C.E tried coming into our
The United States of America and Mexico compare and contrast their differences when it comes to education, homeless rates, and their overall standard of living. The U.S and Mexico compare when it comes to homeless rates seeing as the numbers are increasing each year. As for education, Mexico lacks standard education, where as the United States has a higher standard for education. The overall standard of living in both countries is probably the biggest difference the two countries have. Mexico has many prosperous areas to it, but for the most part people who live in Mexico, live poor and on the streets. Children in Mexico usually have to get street jobs in order to help their families with poverty. The United States has its own level of
Texas in it self is a highly diverse multicultural society. It takes on many aspects of many different cultures. One very noticeable culture that has a great impact on Texas would be that of the Mexican culture. Because Mexican culture is so apparent in Texas, that it is easy to compare and contrast some cultural aspects between Mexican and American cultures. This attempt to compare and contrast these two different yet similar cultures will increase awareness and acceptance of cultural differentiation. In order to examine these two cultures closely, I will use Hofstede's

Some argue that globalization will, on the long term, bring all cultures as a unique Western, if not Americanized, culture, while others argue that some cultures will persist in order to keep their own essence and therefore avoid the homogenization of all cultures. Alongside pure tradition, global conflicts, contradictory political regimes and the diversity of economic systems, some cultures are bound to face issues when trying to fully fit in a global western culture, and that is why cultures are adaptable to one another, but with some limits that we will express in this essay.
”Image in a self portrait generally communicates to the viewer information about the identity, character, environment, feelings and interests of the artist.” In the case if “Between the Borderline of Mexico and The United States” Frida Kahlo expresses her feeling that she holds towards hr alien environment, and her cultural identity. This will now be proven through analyzing the portrait to prove the above quote.
Mexico is one of the most populated and industrialized of the third world nations, yet it remains very impoverished in comparison to it’s northern neighbor. Recently Mexico has been the third largest trading partner of the United States, has become an important exporter of petroleum and plays a pivotal role in the politics of the region. Yet Mexico is frequently treated with neglect and misunderstanding by the United States. This treatment is why Mexico is hesitant about United States influence and investment in Mexico. While many foreign countries acknowledge the United States as a
