Yesterday’s White House meeting between President Obama and Arizona governor Jan Brewer gets top billing in the Spanish-language press today. FBI statistics about safety on the border, the aftermath of Anastasio Hernández’ death at the hands of Border Patrol agents and continued civil disobedience around the country are also in the headlines.

Notimex: “No agreement reached at Obama-Brewer meeting”

Europa Press: “Meeting between President and Arizona governor doesn’t bring them any closer on immigration law”

BBC: “Arizona Governor meets with Obama but doesn’t change her mind” (quotes Maribel Hastings of America’s Voice)
