(Studio) Report introduced
REPORTER: Dan Rather

(Mexico City, Mexico) Jesse Jackson's recent trip to Mexico City, Mexico, to criticize President Reagan's Central American policy said less successful than initially portrayed; Mexico Univ.'s refusal to allow him on campus, his inability to arrange meeting with representatives of Panama, Venezuela and Colombia, and trip's funding discussed. [JACKSON - claims his campaign message has penetrated the border.] His assertion that trip was major success and announcement of upcoming visit to Nicaragua and perhaps Cuba, as well as plans to mobilize large contingent of students in both United States and Mexico on July 4th, noted. [JACKSON - notes Gandhi marched to the sea, Martin Luther King, Junior, to DC, Jesus Christ to Jerusalem.] Possible benefit of Jackson's Mexico visit for his California primary campaign with Hispanic voters there mentioned.
