Donald Trump, a current Republican front-runner, is well known for his presidential campaign and its harsh policies on illegal immigration between Mexico and the United States, which are largely similar to the 1930’s repatriation movement. His policy on Mexican immigration states, “The influx of foreign workers holds down salaries, keeps unemployment high, and makes it difficult for poor and working class Americans… to earn a middle class wage.” This is almost identical to a claim that was made during the Great Depression, and his plans for solving the crisis are also identical to the efforts made during the Repatriation; welfare refusal to immigrant families, job denial, and mass deportation of roughly 11 million Mexican immigrants. Though the thought of these plans going through may seem unachievable, history shows that they can be --and have been --
This move could make globalization a friend or a foe in Mexico’s case. Friend, because it opens opportunities for foreign countries and companies to further expand their economies and influence. Foe, because one country’s economic problems is the world’s economic headache. Unfortunately, it seems that the latter prevails. The Mexican government is broke, citizens unhappy, rebels are itchy, and opposition leaders are gaining influence.

In this essay I will discuss Globalization ruining the integrity of many countries and also is forcing many undeveloped nations into a bind, and is causing economic distress on some developed nations. Also, due to economic globalization the nations of the world are diluting their culture, sovereignty, natural resources, safety and political system. My goal is not to change your way of thought, but only to enlighten you of the negatives of global economic expansion. Now, before I bash globalization it is some positive I would like to discuss. Globalization is great for the American economy; we can supply the world with our goods and services, which in turn can possible, relieve the deficit we’re in.

The rising death toll serves as the proof of what certain people have been saying for years: both the Mexican and American governments need to change their strategy in order to minimize the presence of drug cartels and to curtail drug violence. In order to fight the drug traffickers and any associated bloodshed, one must first understand why the cartels exist and how they operate. Visualize America and Mexico. America is wealthy, has a strong governmental and social structure, and is the world's largest consumer of almost everything, including drugs. Mexico, on the other hand, is poor and has a weak government, but is conveniently located between America and the drug-producing countries in Central/South America.
Due to a struggling Mexico and the difficulty to become a legal citizen, the numbers of illegal immigrants have grown, causing the United States, Mexico and other Central American nations to turn to both tranquil and aggressive solutions. Corporations are beginning to run Mexico, buying acres of land that originally belonged to citizens. This, combined with a failing Mexican economy has left thousands without homes and jobs. Fortunately, the United States economy needs workers and shares a border with Mexico, being of much convenience to them. However, the United... ... middle of paper ... ...n advantage of the struggling Mexican system.
These strategies are a few strategies that the Mexican government may want to lock down on if they want to emerge victorious in the war on drugs. Without any internal violence, these accounting strategies would keep the Los Zetas at the top because they would not be losing much revenue if they continued to maintain the revenue they have already earned. Top that with the knowledge and brutality that comes with having a cartel full of military men and another cartel like the Los Zetas cartel will keep the war on drugs going on for a long time. Luckily, the brutality by the Los Zetas had come back to haunt them, but the Mexican military cannot rely on luck in order to emerge victorious. They need to focus on how to take down the top cartels as soon as possible instead of relying on an internal split like what had occurred with the Los Zetas cartel.
Another reason is because social conflicts reduced the desire for independence .On the other hand, it assaulted dependency because there were some changes within the social hierarchy, and because Mexico was free from Spain. Narrative Before the Mexican insurgency, a mass famine struck the Bajio, or lowland region of Mexico, whilst the higher classes of Mexico were making more money than before. To make matters worse, the inability of the lower class to rule in Mexico resulted in anger due to social injustice. Finally, the Crisis of Legitimacy caused the desire to overthrow the corrupt government. The decorated leader Miguel Hidalgo started a revolt against the ruling class of Spain, destroying the profitable lands of Guanajuato, which led to conflict against the creoles.
