With a population of over 12 millions people, Mexico is located south of the United States in the middle of the Americas within 761,600 Square miles, less than the size of Texas, bordering the Gulf of Mexico, Belize, the United States, and the North Pacific ocean between Guatemala and the U.S.
Not unlike the United States, Mexico has a complex landscape of high rugged mountains, low coastal plains, high plateaus, and deserts. De Orizaba, the highest volcano in Mexico sits at 5,700 miles above sea level, and the country is constantly under the major threats of hurricanes coming from the Caribbeans into the Gulf. Given its geography, Mexico's climate can be placed squarely somewhere between tropical and desert level temperatures.
The current president of Mexico, Enrique Pena Nieto, was visited last week by President Barack Obama in the Mexico City, the capital of Mexico, The country is considered poor, despite its natural resources, which include petroleum, silver, copper, lead, gold, zinc, natural gas, and timber.
The civilization of Mexico has been traced back to approximately 13,000 years. The country was conquered by Spanish conquistadores (conquerors) as part of the Spanish Empire's colonial expansion in the 16th Century. Beginning with the arrival of Christopher Columbus on this continent in 1492, Spain expanded its reach across Central America, the Caribbean islands, and Mexico. The Spanish moved into the Southwest and into the South coastal region of the United State, including California, and through claimed territory they colonized British Columbia in Canada. In addition, Spain extended the reach of its empire into Alaska, Washington and Oregon, as well as the Western half of South America, including Cuba, Puerto Rico, Guatemala, and the Philippines in the Pacific.
Despite the politics of immigration, the majority immigrants - legal or illegal into the United States are not Mexicans and Mexico remains the biggest trade partner of the United States and the biggest provider of low-wage workers to the U.S.
So today, we say, En el nombre del Padre, y del Hijo, y del Espíritu Santo, Âmen.
We want our readers to know that we work hard to make sure that our content is error free. But it should be virtually illegal for people with vision as poor as ours to be writing; We really struggle to see at all. Therefore, aside from going through our writing with a fine-tooth comb, we also constantly return to each content for review. Even then, from time to time, we still miss an extra letter here and there, type a "t" where we want an "r," or type a word twice. Another type of error that can occur is in editing when, as a writer, you decide to replace a word or a term, but accidentally leave in what you wanted replaced. If you notice any of these errors, please leave us a note.
