2010 LULAC convention opens in NM

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - The League of United Latin American Citizens expects thousands to attend its 2010 convention in Albuquerque this week.

The agenda for the national convention, which kicks off Monday, will discuss immigration, among other topics.

Participants in Wednesday's immigration forum include Arizona state lawmakers and representatives of Hispanic groups.

The Obama administration sued the state of Arizona last week over its immigration law that requires police, while enforcing other laws, to question a person's immigration status if there's reasonable suspicion the person is in the country illegally.

The weeklong LULAC convention also will discuss diversity in corporate America and government, health care and education.
