- from Mexico
The U.S. and Mexico are connected in many ways. Trade (buying and selling goods) and tourism are just two of them.
Millions of Mexicans live in the U.S. They came here looking for work. These jobs allow them to send money to their families back in Mexico. These workers are key to the economies of states like California and Texas. Places farther from the border, like New York and Washington State, also benefit from Mexican workers.
Mexico and the U.S. are important trading partners. The U.S. buys about 80 percent of Mexico’s exports. Many people go to Mexico to explore the ancient ruins. Some shop for folk art and colorful handmade crafts. Others visit Mexico to relax on a beautiful beach.
