Pritzker is headed to Mexico for her first official trade mission Nov. 18.

Felipe Montes can see no reason why he shouldn't be able to raise his three sons. He has a job and a house to live in. He has no known history of drug abuse. He has no criminal record , save for a mountain of traffic infractions. The problem is that, after seven years of living illegally in North Carolina's Appalachian foothills, where he worked, married and became a father, Felipe was deported to his native Mexico. Soon after, his American-born wife was deemed unfit to raise the children.

In 2011, remittances totaled $53.1 billion, more than eight times the amount of official aid, the report says.

President Obama sought to calm a diplomatic furor, disputing Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton's assertion that Mexico has begun to look like Colombia at the height of its struggle against a drug-financed insurgency. Obama's comments, in an interview published Thursday by the Los Angeles-based Spanish-language newspaper La Opinion, followed an outcry that began in Mexico after Clinton told a foreign policy group Wednesday that Mexico "is looking more and more like Colombia looked 20 years ago, where the narco-traffickers controlled certain parts of the country.

Millions of dollars in aid to fight Mexican drug trafficking could be delayed as a result of a disagreement between a key lawmaker and the State Department regarding the status of Mexico's human rights prosecutions. Sen. Patrick J.

Mexico's national soccer federation made it official Friday: Victor Manuel Vucetich is out as coach of the national team and Miguel Herrera is in. Herrera, the manager of popular Club America in Mexico's domestic Liga MX, is the fourth national team coach in six weeks. And he might want to think about renting rather than buying since his appointment to the national team is technically just a "loan" from Club America. He's also been told the job is only guaranteed through Mexico's two-leg playoff with New Zealand.
