TUCSON, Ariz. — Arizona Governor Doug Ducey met with Sonora Governor Claudia Pavlovich in Mexico Wednesday in a long-planned trip to discuss a variety of issues.
The meeting comes just days after an attack that left nine Americans dead Monday morning, including children and infants, and after the U.S. State Department issued a travel advisory for parts of Mexico.
The governor discussed border security and ongoing cartel violence in the region with his Mexican counterpart. Ducey stressed the need for both governments to work together to tackle those issues.
