Immigration highlighted in Obama-Calderon meetings
Obama and Calderon participated in an arrival ceremony on the White House South Lawn on Wednesday morning and are expected to hold a joint news conference later in the day. Later, Obama will host a state dinner for the Mexican leader.
While immigration long has been a source of tension, the controversial Arizona immigration law threatens to add strain to U.S.-Mexican relations. Calderon has condemned Arizona's law, which makes it a state crime to be in the country illegally. Obama has called the law “misguided” and asked the Justice Department to review it.
