Explanation:
    The border between the United States and Mexico is the international border that is crossed more often than any other international border in the world. It stretches (or reaches) 1,969 miles (or 3,169 kilometers) and touches four U.S. states: Arizona, California, New Mexico, and Texas. There are about 250 million legal crossings every year, and many more that are illegal (or against the law).
    美国-墨西哥边境是世界上出入最为频繁的一条国境。它总长1969英里(合计3169千米),邻接美国四大洲:亚利桑那州、加利福尼亚州、新墨西哥州和德克萨斯州。每年大约有2亿5千次合法的出入境,更多的是非法越境。
    When the Mexican-American War ended in 1848, Mexico and the United States signed an official agreement called the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo. The Treaty put the border between the two countries on the Rio Grande and the Colorado River. In that same agreement, Mexico ceded (or gave away) more than half of its land, or about 525,000 square miles (or 1.36 million square kilometers), to the United States.
    1848年美墨战争结束,墨西哥和美国签订《瓜达卢佩伊达戈条约》。这个条约以格兰德河和科罗拉多河为界划定了两国国界。同时墨西哥割让超过一半的国土给美国,即525,000平方米(136万平方公里)。
    About 80,000 Mexicans lived in that area when the land was transferred and its ownership changed from Mexico to the United States. The Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo gave those Mexicans U.S. citizenship. In that same treaty, the United States also agreed to honor (or respect) the property rights (or the ownership of land) of the Mexicans who lived in the land that was transferred from Mexico to the United States. However, there are many cases (or stories) where the United States did not honor those property rights and those Mexican Americans sometimes complain, saying that what the United States did was unfair.
    进行这项转让时共有8万墨西哥人住在那个地区。《瓜达卢佩伊达戈条约》中赋予这些转籍的墨西哥人美国公民权,同时保留他们的财产权。但后来发生了很多事情证明美国人并没有如当初约定的那样尊重那些墨西哥裔美国人的财产权,导致这些人非常不满,指责美国的不公正。
    Today, most of the southwestern United States is on land that used to belong to Mexico, and many of the people who live there are descendants (or grandchildren and great-grandchildren) of the people who lived there when the land was still part of Mexico. Mexican traditions (or old way of doing things) still affect life in those areas today. In fact, Mexican culture and traditions have had so much influence (or effect) on the southwestern United States that a style of cooking called Tex-Mex, which is short for Texas-Mexican, has become very popular not only in that part of the country, but all over the United States.

    如今大部分美国南部地区曾经都是属于墨西哥的,很多那里的居民都是当时住在那里的墨西哥人的后代。直至今日,墨西哥传统仍影响着那些地区的人们。事实上,墨西哥的文化和传统对美国南部地区影响非常大,一种叫做Tex-Mex(即德克萨斯和墨西哥的缩写)的德式墨西哥料理席卷整个美国,而不仅仅是影响一小部分地区。
