Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto To Visit LA Next Week
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto is coming to California at the invitation of Gov. Jerry Brown, less than a month after Brown visited his country.
The two will address hundreds of Mexican Americans on Monday in Los Angeles. On Tuesday, Brown will host a luncheon in the president’s honor in Sacramento. Pena Nieto will then address the Legislature at the state Capitol.
There’s no immediate word on what Pena Nieto plans to say, but Mexico and its northern neighbor share concerns about a host of issues, including immigration and pollution.
During the governor’s trip to Mexico last month, Brown signed nonbinding agreements on trade, education and environmental cooperation. Brown also promised to work with the U.S. government to find a long-term solution to the immigration crisis.
