DEMING, N.M. (AP) - A southern New Mexico county is considering expanding its port-of-entry.

Luna County Board of Commissioners is scheduled to meet in special session on Friday to discuss the plan. Residents will have the chance to speak about the proposal to expand the port-of-entry in Columbus.

Officials say the expansion is needed to increase freight through New Mexico and make it easier for the city and truckers to pass through.

Port-of-Entries throughout New Mexico along the U.S.-Mexico border have reported record traffic in recent years.
