Geography of the Borderlandsby: Carly Montanez

Standard 1 focus: Map of US- Mexico borderlands; mapusing data, etc. to give information http://international.usgs.gov/images/projects/prjusmexborderpic2.gif

Standard 2 focus: Mental map of a route to go into Mexico avoiding border control (drawn by Carly Montanez)

Standard 3 focus: It is clear that Idaho, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, and Texas have the highest percentage of foreign born people being Mexico born people. The northeast has a low number of 15% of Mexico born out of their foreign born people. The rest of the states range from 15-49 percent. Around the Mexican border the numbers are high. I am not sure why Idaho's numbers are so high though. http://www.migrationinformation.org/charts/map2-spot-apr08.cfm

Standard 4 focus: On the Arizona-Mexico border, there has been growth in population. The map is clear and easy to understand. http://www.swcarr.arizona.edu/sites/default/files/ACCSWUS_Ch16_Fig4_0.jpg

Standard 6 focus: My family on my father's side is hispanic. My grandpa is from Mexico and my grandma is from Spain. I think that people living along the borderlands are probably Mexican. I think that there might be a lot of low-income areas.

Standard 5 focus: I believe that the U.S and Mexico borderlands are a formal region. A formal region is decided by having common human property. The borderlands share traits with eachother that geographers are able to measure. I don't believe that this area is a region based on functionality. There is no common highway or freeway that runs through them, there are no common airports, etc. I also do not think that this region is based on perception. I think that this region has too much evidence to be just percepted as a region.

Standard 8 focus: This map shows the ecological regions and shows the different deserts. https://userscontent2.emaze.com/images/0216f7ad-d4c4-48cc-8921-fd3534a3c939/2176c7f3-1694-434e-bff4-46b17161c8f1.png

Standard 10 focus: This image shows hispanic entertainers and their outfits.
