Obama To Pitch The Immigration Overhaul In Mexico

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON -

President Barack Obama is heading to Mexico with a domestic ambition at the top of his travel agenda. To win an immigration overhaul back home, he needs a growing economy in Mexico and a Mexican president willing to help him secure the border.

Obama flies to Mexico City on Thursday to meet with President Enrique Pena Nieto. There, he will promote Mexico's economic success and its place as the second largest export market for U.S. goods and services.

It's a pitch aimed at selling an immigration bill to Congress.

Obama aides say Mexico's cooperation is crucial to prevent illegal border crossings. And, they add, a growing Mexican economy is a disincentive to illegal immigration.
