SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Attorneys general from five U.S. states plan to visit Mexico for three days starting March 24 to discuss cross-border crimes.

California Attorney General Kamala Harris’ office said Sunday that she will be joined by Colorado Attorney General John Suthers, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto and New Mexico Attorney General Gary King.

They and Mexican authorities plan to discuss what joint actions they can take to fight international money laundering.

Other topics include the growing involvement of transnational gangs in stealing intellectual property and distributing counterfeit goods, as well as using technology to fight human trafficking, cybercrime and child pornography.

Meetings are planned with Mexico Attorney General Jesus Murillo Karam and state attorneys general from Baja California, Campeche, Chihuahua, Sonora and Zacatecas.
