ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the border region between the United States and Mexico. The political border was formed after the Mexican-American War of 1848. The region is the only place in the world where a country with a highly-developed economy shares a border with a relatively undeveloped third-world nation. The Colorado River forms part of the boudary between California and Mexico. The Rio Grande separates Texas from Mexico. Illegal immigration is a problem in the border region. Communities along the border, such as Juarez, Mexico and El Paso, Texas, blend Mexican and American culture.
