Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto

Just a week after Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto cancelled a meeting with President Trump and blasted Trump’s plan to build a wall and impose new tariffs on Mexico, the Mexican president received a new invitation to speak in the US: from the New Mexico state legislature.

“We invite you to speak at the New Mexico House of Representatives about our common bonds, cultures and benefits of a shared future together,” State Representatives Bill McCamley (Las Cruces), Angelica Rubio (Las Cruces) and Javier Martinez (Albuquerque) wrote.  All three are Democrats.
