The Jemez were beligerent back in the 80 and 90s and constantly said they weren't going to build casinos like their neighboring tribes. Such an arrogant and simple-minded attitude has left them with no place to put a viable casino on tribal land, so they want to now be "the exception" to the rule.

Poor planing on your part DOES NOT constitute an emergency on my part.

NO TO JEMEZ!

Anthony, NM has practically no tax base, little if any opportunities for employment, but great people. Who could be against the building of this casino?? Other than the powers that be in Sunland Park. Anthony NM nees jobs and opportunities, just like all of the rest of impoverished southern Dona Ana County. Why is this taking so long?? Get it built and get the people of southern Dona Ana County to work!

Look at all that money flow to New Mexico while our poor Tiguas continue to suffer at the hands of those in Austin.

How dumb are our politicians? If we don't take advantage of it, someone else will. New Mexico is going to get additional income coming from the casino. New jobs will be created. Texans will drive down there to spend their money. When will the government stop trying to think for us and tell us what's good and bad.

More power to the Jemez Tribe. You deserve the opportunity to better yourselves. We wish you luck with fair treatment from the American bureaucrats.

I dunno about the casino. Im only for it if its actually gonna create jobs for people living in Anthony. I remember living in Anthony and hated the fact that everyone pretty much had to go to Texas to work. Not that i dislike Texas or anything but lets create some jobs and get the economy going in NM too.

All for it! Bring it on!! Bye Bye Sunland Park thought you could be the only so called casino in the area. Well let's hope it gets built. And for you who just can't sleep at night tossing and turning just thinking about the addicted gamblers who will have another option to exploit their addiction. Oh! Well!! If it's playing at a casino or buying a thousand lottery tickets the addict will gamble somehow, somewhere!!

Let them open the casino. That way the Sunland Park casino will have some competition and start paying. Everyone complaints about how poorly Sunland Park pays. Very few jackpots are paid out.
Hell yeah

Hahaha! The so-called 'tiguas' aren't really an NDN tribe, you simple-minded fool. It's a bunch of Mexicans who fooled the federal government.

At least the Jemez are real NDNs. Dumb and unambitious, but real NDNs.

What a bunch of dumb New Mexicans. Native Americans were allowed in their state to open casinos in tribal lands while full fledged gaming is not allowed across the rest of the state. Now some tribe wants to make literaly millions of dollars by opening up a casino in an area outside of tribal lands and they are all for it. My point is that if a "tribe" is allowed to open up a casino somewhere outside of a Native American reservation, the people of the entire state should have the same right to open up casinos and benefit from the rewards - not just for the few hundred members of a certain group of people (the Jemez Pueblo).

Actually I don't give a rats a$$ who opens it. It doesn't really matter because whoever opens it up are usually class a crooks. Around NM/AZ gotta give it to the indians and their casinos, not too bad.
