ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Hundreds of New Mexico residents are headed to Washington, D.C., this week to attend festivities surrounding President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration.

The Albuquerque Journal reports (https://bit.ly/2k7aJeu ) that Gov. Susana Martinez and Albuquerque Mayor Richard Berry are scheduled to attend the swearing-in ceremony and many other members of New Mexico’s delegates at the Republican Convention and others who got tickets through the state’s congressional delegation.

While many are planning to support the inauguration, at least 100 residents are scheduled to participate in a women’s protest march scheduled for the National Mall on Saturday. Organizers estimate about 200,000 people from around the country will participate in the march.

A number of Democratic members of Congress have said they are boycotting the inaugural ceremony, but all of Mew Mexico’s congressional delegation is planning to attend.
