Juarez - The pressure is on Mexico's president today as he visits Juarez.
Felipe Calderon's arrival follows the weekend murders of three people with ties to the U.S. consulate.
Previous presidential visits came with assurances of a stepped up police presence in Juarez and a promise that Juarez will take back its city from warring drug cartels.
Calderon's agenda has not been released but it is widely believed he will address the most recent violence that killed Lesley Enriquez, a U.S. citizen who worked for the consulate in Juárez, and her husband, Arthur Redelfs, 30, a detention officer for the El Paso County Sheriff's Office.
They were shot dead Saturday near the Santa Fe Bridge after leaving a birthday party attended by several employees of the U.S. consulate in Juárez.
