President Obama spoke with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto Wednesday about Mr. Obama’s granting of legal status to millions of illegal immigrants, and the White House said both men pledged to stop more immigrants coming from Central America.

“President Obama and President Pena Nieto reaffirmed the commitment of both countries to work together in Central America to help address the underlying factors driving migration from the region to Mexico and the United States and deter migrant smuggling, including the smuggling of unaccompanied children,” the White House said.

The presidents also pledged “to work together to combat organized crime and promote improved security and justice for our citizens,” the statement said.

Mr. Obama said Tuesday that he “changed the law” on U.S. immigration policy by shielding nearly 5 million immigrants from deportation and granting them work permits.
