SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez is traveling to the Mexican state of Sonora for discussions with officials there about economic development and public safety.

The governor’s office announced Thursday that Martinez is traveling to Hermosillo to attend a meeting of a commission that facilitates collaboration between New Mexico and Sonora on economic and law enforcement matters.

New Mexico’s Republican governor also plans to meet during her travels in Mexico with Chihuahua state Gov. Javier Corral Jurado, a former journalist and member of the conservative National Action Party.

Martinez is scheduled to return Monday from a trip paid for by the state of New Mexico.

New Mexico’s border with Mexico is one focus of efforts by President Donald Trump to extend border walls to restrict immigration.
