Mexican President Meeting Business Leaders in Seattle

SEATTLE, Wash. -  As the U.S. Senate acts on an immigration bill, Mexican President Vicente Fox is watching from Seattle.

In a speech last night he said the United States should have secure borders, a robust guest worker program and opportunity for undocumented migrants to earn citizenship.

The Senate bill includes a chance at citizenship. The House version deals only with enforcement. Fox began his visit to Washington yesterday in Yakima.

He has a busy day in Seattle. He's having breakfast with Governor Gregoire and business leaders, visiting a Hispanic community health clinic, and having a business lunch. Fox leaves this afternoon for California.
