MEXICO CITY--At a university here, First Lady Michelle Obama on Wednesday urged a group of Mexican students to "ensure that other young people have the opportunities they deserve," a variation of a theme that is a standard in most of her speeches.

She spoke at the Universidad Iberamericana in the Santa Fe area of the city, near high rises housing corporate headquarters, condos and a U.S-style shopping mall. About 2,000 invited students--from a variety of high schools and other universities-- crowded into courtyard at the Jesuit School, decorated with giant Mexican and U.S. flags.
