SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Attorneys general from border states are planning a trip to Mexico this spring as prosecutors from both countries fight trafficking in people, guns and drugs, among other crimes.
California Attorney General Kamala Harris said Wednesday that she plans to lead the trip, which will be organized through the National Association of Attorneys General.
She said state prosecutors expect to meet with their counterparts in Mexico to discuss the problems posed by transnational gangs.
In addition to cross-border trafficking, Harris told attendees at the California Newspaper Publishers Association's Government Affairs Day that the talks will include cybersecurity and piracy of intellectual property from technology companies, the entertainment industry and other businesses.
Harris' office says the trip is still being organized and could not say which attorneys general plan to attend.
