Standard 5: What type of a region is the U.S./Mexico borderlands?I think the borderland of the U.S. and Mexico is a perceptual region. First of all, the second type of the functional region gave am example of Chicago, with its highways, railways. I think the borderlands don’t have this kind of transportation like Chicago, so the U.S. and Mexico is not the functional region. Then, the first one talked about that a common human property. Mexico and U.S. have different language, so the U.S. and Mexico is not the formal region. Thus, the borderland of the U.S. and Mexico is a perceptual region.
