This afternoon, Barack Obama is scheduled to meet with President Felipe Calderon of Mexico. One topic of discussion is expected to be the escalating drug cartel war - drug-related homicides doubled in Mexico last year, with over 1,600 murders in Juarez alone. Immigration and trade are also expected to be discussed.
