The election of the new Mexican president on Sundaywill undoubtedly have ripple effects on relations with the United States, on NAFTA negotiations and immigration.

The winner of the election, leftist Andres Manuel López Obrador, seems to be a very different leader than the outgoing president, Enrique Peña Nieto. So does will that mean a different type of relationship with the United States?

Sergio Bárcena, a political science professor at Tec de Monterrey, joined The Show to talk about that.

Jorge Valencia was a senior field correspondent at KJZZ from 2016 to 2019.
