Calderón and Obama have a meeting today

Mexican President Felipe Calderón Thursday visits Washington, where he is expected to talk with President Barack Obama about the drug war, economic issues and immigration. The two presidents will meet after recent strains in U.S.-Mexican relations.

Presidents Obama and Calderón will talk in the Oval Office, weeks after a U.S. immigration and customs agent was killed in Mexico, and after U.S. diplomats’ criticism of Mexico’s fight against drugs was sent to the Web site Wikileaks.

Recently-leaked cables from U.S. embassy personnel said that Mexico’s armed forces are ineffective and corrupt.
