Immigration will be a key topic when President Barack Obama meets with Mexico's President Felipe Calderon (fay-LEE'-pay kahl-duh-ROHN') at the White House Wednesday.
Calderon is expected to push for an overhaul of U.S. immigration law during his trip to Washington. A senior administration official says Obama will reiterate his commitment to fixing the nation's broken immigration system. The official spoke on the condition of anonymity in order to speak freely ahead of the meetings.
The immigration issue has heated up in recent weeks since Arizona's governor signed a controversial illegal immigration bill into law. Obama has called the Arizona law "misguided" and asked the Justice Department to review it.
