SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham says that states may push for a special census enrollment period next year if President Donald Trump leaves the White House.

The comments came at a recent meeting of the governor’s advisory council on racial injustice. A new council meeting was scheduled Wednesday.
