Schwarzenegger, Fox to discuss immigration, security & trade

Governor Schwarzenegger says border security, immigration and trade will top the agenda when he meets with Mexican President Vicente Fox Thursday. Fox will stop in Sacramento to meet with the Governor and lawmakers. Schwarzenegger says he's hoping for an open discussion - and says the topic of border security is about more than just immigration.

Schwarzenegger: We're always talking about illegal immigration but I'm also concerned about - very much concerned about the slipping through of terrorists. We have discovered 40 tunnels since 9-11 and those are tunnels that have the size where trucks can go through.

Schwarzenegger says California may be able to help its major trading partner improve its economy - which could help ease the flow of illegal immigrants. Some conservatives have urged a hard-line approach to Fox's visit, claiming Mexico should bear responsibility for illegal immigration.
