President Obama’s Trip to Mexico Emphasizes America’s Future Economic Prosperity and Security

Diana Villiers Negroponte and Ted Piccone

President Obama’s meetings with Mexico’s new president Enrique Pena Nieto will certainly cover border security issues, weapons, drug trafficking and immigration, but these two leaders will want to find ways to further cement the economic relationship between the two countries. Earlier this week, Senior Fellows Ted Piccone and Diana Negroponte sat down together to examine the importance of these talks.
