Posted 8:07 AM 5/19/2010 : U.S. and Mexico presidents meet, discuss immigration reform
WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama is meeting Mexico's Felipe Calderon in the White House today. Immigration reform is expected to dominate the two leaders' discussions.
Obama and Calderon participated in an arrival ceremony on the White House South Lawn 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.
