President of Mexico to Visit Sacramento Today
Posted Tuesday, August 26th 2014 @ 8am  by KFBK News

After spending a day in Los Angeles to discuss trade and climate change, Governor Jerry Brown and Mexico's president are expected to address state leaders at the capitol. 

Mexico's President Enrique Pena Nieto is arriving in Sacramento today, marking the last of his two-day visit to California.

However, not everyone is excited about this.

Organizations and individuals are planning a protest today at Stanford Mansion, saying the recent counter-reforms that Brown and Nieto are working on are forcing poor Mexicans and others from Central and South America to flock to the U.S., creating a bigger immigration crisis. 

Nieto's trip to California comes a month after Brown flew down to Mexico City to sign non-binding agreements on trade, education and environmental cooperation. 

The visit will cause some road closures downtown between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.: 

· N Street between 7th and 9th Streets

· Northbound 8th Street between P Street and Capitol Mall

· Southbound 9th Street between L and O Streets

· Northbound 10th Street between N and L Streets
