Obama and Perry to meet, after much conflict

(CNN) – President Obama will meet Wednesday with Republican Texas Governor Rick Perry, Obama's chief antagonist on the crisis at Perry's border.

What the governor really wanted was not a private meeting, but a public trip, together to the border, to give the President a first-hand look at the effects of thousands of children flooding to the U.S. illegally. Obama will be on a trip to Texas that includes a pair of political fundraisers.

CNN's Dana Bash reports.
