Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Mexifornia (or Califaztlán or Calexico) refers to the condition that is the result of the accelerated migration of people into California and the rapid transformation of many aspects of the culture of the state.

Mexifornia is a state level version of what is now known as Amexica : "The United States of “Amexica” share more than a border and a common heritage: both sides welcome the benefits of trade but struggle with the pressures of growth."[1]

This is a topic of a heated debate between the advocates of amnesty for illegal immigrants on one side and those wishing to enforce immigration laws on the other side.

The term Mexifornia is becoming part of the regular lexicon, both in English and Spanglish, appearing from books[2] to t-shirts.
