Enrique Peña Nieto of the Institutional Revolutionary Party became Mexico’s 89th President on Saturday. How will the new leader affect Mexican-American relations? What can we gather from his recent meeting with Obama? And will we ever see an end to Mexico’s drug cartels?

    The problem with the PRI (aside from being a party of the rich which manipulates the poor) is that it has a history of political violence. and EPN seems no different. 2 protesters were killed and many injured in the violent police repression of activists and townsfolk in Atenco, and Mexico State has become one of the places with the highest rates of violence towards women.

    Pri is institutional revolutionary party not industrial revolutionary party

    The president’s last name is Peña Nieto, it is not correct or respectful to call him “president Nieto”
