(AP) — New Mexico is offering dormitories at a state exposition hall in Albuquerque to asylum seeking immigrants in search of temporary shelter. Democratic Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham and Albuquerque Mayor Tim Keller announced Tuesday that beds and kitchen space on the grounds of New Mexico’s annual state fair will be available to immigrants. Thousands of Central American migrants have been dropped off in New Mexico by U.S. border Patrol in recent weeks as asylum seekers overwhelm shelters near international ports of entry in West Texas. A statement from state and city officials says immigrants can stay at Expo New Mexico facilities for no more than 72 hours before leaving to reach relatives or other sponsors. The facility is located in one of the most racially and ethnically diverse areas of Albuquerque.
