US presidential candidate Donald Trump delivers a joint press conference with Mexican President Enrique Pena NietoWhite House hopeful Donald Trump issued a stern anti-immigration warning after visiting Mexico, saying people who cross into the United States illegally would never obtain legal status. It was one in a series of stark declarations that framed a sweeping plan to crack down on illegal immigration following his more measured tone earlier Wednesday, when the Republican nominee huddled with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto.

U.S. presidential nominee Trump and Mexico's President Pena Nieto finish a press conference in Mexico CityBy Dave Graham MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexico's president rebuked Donald Trump as a threat to his country just hours after painting a positive picture of talks the two held on Wednesday to try to defuse tensions over the U.S. presidential hopeful's anti-Mexican campaign rhetoric. President Enrique Pena Nieto had on Wednesday afternoon hailed as "open and constructive" the impromptu meeting he held with Trump, who later referred to the Mexican leader as his friend and a "wonderful" president. "His policy stances could represent a huge threat to Mexico, and I am not prepared to keep my arms crossed and do nothing," Pena Nieto said.
