    Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson are expected to visit Mexico to meet with high-ranking Mexican officials, including President Enrique Pena Nieto himself, to discuss a host of important issues including trade, border security and law enforcement.

    The meeting will take place against the background of the somewhat strained relations between the two countries. One of US President Donald Trump's campaign pledges was to build a wall between the US and Mexico  to stem the tide of illegal migrants trying to get into the United States, and have Mexico cover the construction costs.
