Thats all New Mexico needs is another casino,we have enough gambling problem already. Kids left without food when mom and dad spend all thier money gambling. It would also adversly affect Sunland Park and the horse racing industry. There is just so much gambling dollers to go around when it is spread around to so many venues no one mades any money.

This is total BS. Remember 3 years ago when Fat Bill wouldn't let the Apache open a Casino on interstate 10 at Akalia Flats. He had the State Police with Chopers and every law enforcement person within a hundred miles standing by to stop the Casino from opening. Now someone has done a study so one can open in Anthony. Money has changed hands again. Only in America????
