MEXICO CITY/TEGUCIGALPA (Reuters) – Mexico‘s President Enrique Pena Nieto and Central American leaders hailed U.S. President Barack Obama‘s sweeping immigration reforms on Friday, with the Mexican leader calling them the “most important measures taken in several decades.”
Obama’s plan, unveiled on Thursday, eases the threat of deportation for some 4.7 million immigrants who are in the United States without legal documents.
“This is an act of justice which recognizes the great contribution of millions of Mexicans to the development of our neighbor,” Pena Nieto told a conference in Mexico.
