Mexican president starts California visit

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto is visiting California at the invitation of Gov. Jerry Brown.

His two-day tour starts in Los Angeles on Monday and comes less than a month after Brown visited Mexico.

The two will address hundreds of Mexican and Mexican-American leaders at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles, the governor's office said last week.

On Tuesday, Brown will host a luncheon in the president's honor in Sacramento. Pena Nieto will then address the Legislature at the state Capitol.

There was no immediate word on what Pena Nieto plans to say, but Mexico and the U.S. share concerns about a host of issues, including immigration and pollution. Mexico also is California's largest export market.

During the governor's trip to Mexico last month, he signed nonbinding agreements on trade, education and environmental cooperation.

One calls for a pilot program to educate Mexican temporary farm workers who travel to California about their rights and for the creation of a database of people in Mexico who recruit U.S.-bound, low-skilled workers.

California also agreed to help Mexico find ways to build renewable energy plants in Baja California and to find ways to shorten long waits at the Tijuana-San Diego international border crossing.
