Governor Jerry Brown embarks on three-day trip to Mexico

Governor Jerry Brown has left for Mexico to meet with President Enrique Pena Nieto discuss trade, illegal immigration and other issues.

The trade mission aims at encouraging Mexico to increase direct investments in the Golden State, promote university exchanges and create environmental partnerships to fight back climate change.

The governor's office yesterday announced that during the three-day visit to Mexico, Mr. Brown would also discuss various issues with diplomatic and religious leaders of Central America.

Ahead of his trip to Mexico, Mr. Brown said, "We want to increase trade. We want to deal with some issues on the refugees that are coming across the border. And I also want to collaborate with Mexico in pushing an intelligent climate change agenda."

Mr. Brown is accompanied by around 10 members of his administration, along with five state senators and ten Assembly members.

On Tuesday, Mr. Brown will meet with more than a dozen Central American leaders as well as Los Angeles Archbishop Jose Horacio Gomez. The issue of immigrants has become a hot topic in the U. S. as thousands of unaccompanied, undocumented young migrants and families from Central America entered the U. S.

Most of the undocumented immigrants who have crossed the U. S. border illegally over the past few months are from El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and other parts of the Central America. These immigrants have cited problems like poverty and widening influence of drug-gangs in their native countries as reasons behind their migration.
