MEXICO CITY (AP) -- Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto has proposed legalizing gay marriage.

Pena Nieto said Tuesday that he has signed initiatives that would seek to enshrine same-sex marriage in the country's constitution and the federal civil code.

The protest was held against Mexicali's mayor and other officials after blocking for a fourth time the gay couple from marrying in defiance of an order from Mexico's Supreme Court, the men's lawyer said. Hours later, the Mayor allowed the couple to marry. (AP Photo/Alex Cossio)
