US v. Mexico
Transcript of US v. Mexico
May 23, 2011 I chose this topic because I found an interest in the history and relations between our country and Mexico.
This project is dedicated to the people of both countries for giving me a great topic, Maria Victoria Genevievé Howell-Arza for being so supportive, and to my parents for putting up with my late nights working on this project. For several years, the United States of America and Mexico have been involved in many ways.
They share a border, are partners in trade, and are looking for solutions to drug trafficking and illegal border crossing.
The relationship has a direct impact on the lives of millions of citizens from each country.
