SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) ee" New Mexico will host a meeting of U.S. and Mexican border governors, providing a new venue for a conference that was scrapped in Arizona because of a dispute over its new immigration enforcement law.
However, the governors of Arizona and Texas will not attend the rescheduled meeting.
The meeting will be held in Santa Fe in late September, according to Gilbert Gallegos, a spokesman for Democratic Gov. Bill Richardson.
The governors of six Mexican states are expected to attend, he said Thursday.
