A month after Gov. Jerry Brown headed south of the border to shore up California’s trade and investment relationship with Mexico, Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto is returning the favor.
He arrives in California today for visits to Sacramento and Los Angeles, where he and Brown will meet with Mexican-American leaders, 4 p.m. at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel.
Brown will also host Peña Nieto for a luncheon tomorrow at the Stanford Mansion, before Peña Nieto addresses a joint session of the Legislature, 2:45 p.m. in the Assembly chamber.
During his visit to Mexico last month, Brown met with Peña Nieto to discuss the surge of illegal border crossings by the young Central American migrants. He also signed nonbinding pacts with Mexico on climate change, energy, higher education, and free trade.
