Gov. Martinez to dedicate new port of entry in Santa Teresa

SANTA TERESA, N.M. (AP) – New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez is set to dedicate a new, state-of-the-art port of entry facility in the booming border town of Santa Teresa.

Martinez is scheduled Friday to visit the new port of entry and participate in a ribbon cutting ceremony for Twin Cities Logistic Center.

In April, Martinez signed two measures aimed at helping Santa Teresa.

One measure extends the overweight cargo zone in Santa Teresa and two other New Mexico ports of entry, a move officials say could attract more companies to the area.

The other bill brings New Mexico’s weight limit for oversize load permits in line with federal standards and neighboring states at up to 80,000 pounds.

Santa Teresa is seeing rapid growth as state officials plan more projects. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
