Mexico and the United States

Mexico is the third largest North American country with a growing economy. Mexico’s relationship with the United States from an economical, social and political standpoint has been stable, however there have been major conflicts between the two countries. One conflict primarily revolves around the drug war taking place in Mexico. Over the course of the mid to late 2000s, drug-related murders in Mexico increased by the thousands every year primarily due to the ongoing drug war between drug cartels and the Mexican government. Another continuing dispute between the two countries is the extensive amount of illegal immigrants flooding into the United States. Several parts of their shared borders are on occasion unguarded, allowing for easy access onto U.S. soil. This has often caused a strain in the relations between the U.S. and Mexico. Despite accumulating millions of illegal immigrants inside its borders, the United States still allowed for plenty of immigration from and to Mexico.

With a growing population and a stable, but recovering economy, Mexico has maintained a considerably low unemployment rate. The majority of its workforce is divided into three economic sectors; agriculture, industry and services, with the majority of workers being located in the service industry.
