The Salahi Effect? White House Hopes for Smoother State Dinner This Time

"We understand that this is an issue that has resonated in Mexico, is of deep concern for the Mexican government, and again underscores the importance that the president has said in dealing with that frustrating on the United States, fixing our broken immigration system, and moving forward on comprehensive immigration reform," the administration official said.

But like many state visits, the takeaway of the day may be more a reaffirmation of the countries relationship rather than anything tangible.

"I wouldn't expect that there would be any startling announcements of any major new projects or programs, but that's not necessarily to be expected. What's important is reaffirming the need to work cooperatively on issues that are of importance to both countries," DeShazo said.

"It's a statement about the centrality of the bilateral relationship, which is good."

This will be the fourth time the two Presidents are meeting bilaterally, since President Obama was selected, and the 11th time overall – as they have seen each other at numerous international summits over the course of the past year and a half.
