LAS CRUCES - The U.S. Department of Interior rejected an application from the Jemez Pueblo to build a casino off I-10 in Anthony, Doņa Ana County, about 300 miles from their reservation. The tribe wanted to place 78 acres in trust with the federal government to build a 48,000-square-foot casino.  Their application was made in December 2004.

The federal decision was explained in a letter from Assistant Secretary for Indian Affairs Carl J. Altman, which stated "Because the proposed gaming facility is not within a commutable distance of the reservation, resident tribal members will either decline the job opportunity if they desire to remain on the reservation; or move away from the reservation to take advantage of job opportunities."
