 President Obama has just wrapped up his summit with leaders of Mexico in Canada, where energy and trade were prominent in their discussions at the White House about strengthening the North American economies.

“The confidence is up, and the economy is getting stronger. But with lots of folks still struggling to find work and pay the bills, we are doing everything we can to speed up the recovery, and that includes boosting trade with our two largest economic partners.”
The president also addressed the debate over the health care law, which is under review by the US Supreme1 Court. He says he’s confident the law will be upheld.
Mr. Obama's political rivals, Mitt2 Romney and Rick Santorum, are campaigning in Wisconsin ahead of tomorrow's GOP primary. NPR's Ari Shapiro reports Romney is talking about his personnel life more than he has in the past.
A supporter at a rally in Green Bay asked Mitt Romney about the accusation3 that he does not relate to average Americans. Romney talked about his work as a lay pastor4 for the Mormon Church and about his wife's struggles with multiple sclerosis and breast cancer.
“And when you get a chance to know people on a very personal basis, whether you’re serving as a pastor or perhaps as a counselor5 or other kinds of roles, you understand that almost everybody you see is facing some challenges. And one of the reasons I’m running for president of the United States is I want to help people.”
Wisconsin is one of three contests tomorrow, along with Maryland and Washington DC. Polls show Romney with a wide lead in all three places. Ari Shapiro, NPR News, Green Bay, Wisconsin.
Federal immigration officials say they have arrested more than 3,000 people as part of a nationwide crackdown. NPR's Ted6 Robbins says the operation was targeting previously8 convicted criminals.
ICE or Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials announced the latest in a series of what they call “Operation Cross Check.” The agency released video showing teams of officers, faces obscured, arresting individuals all over the country.
“This morning, we’re going to be among all the targets. We’re going after two. One’s an at-large criminal alien convicted of DWI”.
ICE doesn't identify the officers in the video. It arrested gang members, sex offenders9 and at least one murderer. A large number of people had been previously convicted of immigration violations10. As for where they came from, ICE says it arrested natives of 116 countries. Ted Robbins, NPR News.
Greeted by a massive welcome banner and resounding11 cheers today, about 500 southern Indiana students were back in school for the first time since their town was devastated12 by a tornado13 a month ago. Henryville Jr/Sr High School students arrived by bus after a ten-mile drive from their hometown to a Scottsburg, Indiana complex.
At last check on Wall Street, the Dow was up 83 points a 13,295.

A Pakistani court sentenced Osama bin7 Laden's widows and two of his daughters to 45 days in jail for illegally living in the country. The women have served much of their time in detention14 since US forces raided the family compound in Abbottabad last May. They now face deportation15. One of the wives, a Yemeni, will be deported16 to her homeland in the coming weeks. But two of the widows are Saudi citizens, and their return home remains17 uncertain because Saudi officials revoked18 Osama bin Laden's citizenship19 in 1994. Their attorney, Amir Khalil, tells NPR News he is in discussions with the Saudis.
“Although 45 days, almost a month has been elapsed, and there are only two weeks left. So soon after two weeks, they will be deported.”
The widows' attorney, Amir Khalil, speaking with NPR News.
Back in the US, the construction industry continues to struggle in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis. NPR's Jim Zarroli reports that construction spending fell again in February.
The Commerce Department says spending fell by 1.1%, and the decline in January was bigger than first thought. There was weakness across the board. Construction of single-family homes was down, though it was offset20 to some degree by apartment building. Spending on government construction was down, and so was spending on hotels, offices and shopping malls. The construction sector21 has rebounded22 somewhat over the past year. But it's still about 1/3 below the levels it hit at the height of the mortgage boom. Jim Zarroli, NPR News, New York.
Today, we’ve been seeing gains in the US market with the Dow up 83 points; NASDAQ gaining 30; S&P 500 up 14 points.
