California is considered to be one of the most important states in the USA since it is one of the largest states in the United States of America. To be more precise, we should say that it is the third largest state in the federation. As such, it occupies a vast space in the western part of the USA which practically means that numerous flora and fauna species are present there as well as other natural resources that are of vital importance for the entire USA. When we are talking about the size of this state, we need one important thing about it – its border. To be more precise, this state is very important due to its southern border which is separated not only California but also the USA from Mexico. Why is this important? First of all, the largest number of illegal immigrants into the USA come by crossing this border. So the monitoring and guiding of this border are of vital interest to the USA so that the inflow of the foreign population may be either prevented or controlled. This border is also important for the USA since most of the drug and criminal activities from Mexico come through it. So, keeping this border safe, and guarding it properly keeps the drugs and criminal out of the USA.
