this project shows a typical scenario in 4 different political environments, dealing with immigration and national/local territories:
1. US government solidifies CA/MEX border, thus steming the flow of illegal immigrants, and isolating itself.
2. US opens CA/MEX border, thus restoring CA to its former status as a state of shared colonial governance.
3. CA secedes from US, joining with mexico to create an independent state.
4. CA secedes from US, and solidifies its own borders, thus becoming anentity unto itself...
hope you enjoy, and hope this inspires some thoughtful conversation!
the assignment was to write a paper, but this is more visceral...
