Calderón to push for U.S. Immigration Reform

Felipe Calderón, Mexico's President-elect, says he will push for broad reform of U.S. immigration law when he takes office at the end of this year. Outgoing President Vincente Fox also unsuccessfully lobbied for reform during his six-year term.

For now, Mr. Calderón has considerable domestic issues to address, not the least of which is how to deal with an opposition movement, lead by his political opponent Andrés Manuel López Obrador. López Obrador has vowed to block Calderón’s inauguration in December.
