Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto played up the close relationship his country has with California, probably the most immigrant-friendly state that shares its border with Mexico.

“This is the other Mexico,” he said, according to the Los Angeles Times, as he kicked off a two-day tour of California

During his first official visit to the U.S., Peña Nieto spoke of the need for U.S. immigration reform, and said those who reject diversity and inclusion will ultimately be proven wrong.

“We want to be a factor of cohesion, not division, with full respect for the sovereignty of the United States,” Peña Nieto said Monday. “This, at the end, is about — and only about — a matter of justice for those who contribute so much to the development of the American society.”

He also lashed out at what he called “unethical” governors who cracked down on immigrants, though he didn’t name any specifically.

“There are still states that have not evolved so much as California, that still skimp on recognition and, even worse, the rights of immigrants,” he said. “Those who still believe and bet for the exclusion and discrimination or the rejection of diversity … I only have one thing to say: the future, and a very near future, will demonstrate your ethical mistake. Time will show we’re right.”

Peña Nieto was welcomed by Gov. Jerry Brown, who played up his immigration credentials in a speech that highlighted the close cultural and historical ties they share across borders.

“It wasn’t very long ago that the governor of California was outlawing driver’s licenses for people who were undocumented from Mexico,” Brown said. “That’s not the law anymore.”

Brown signed a bill into law last year that will enable immigrants to get driver’s licenses next year. He said he got the message after a visit to a Monterey artichoke field where the workers yelled “licencia, licencia.”
