SANTA FE, NM - The National Indian Gaming Commission has ruled against the Fort Sill Apache Tribe which wants to build a high-stakes bingo casino on land it owns near Deming, New Mexico. The commission issued a 30-page decision this week that blocks all gambling activities on that property.
Last February Gov. Bill Richardson ordered state police to block road access off Interstate 10 if the tribe attempted to open a temporary casino on their property. In April the tribe opened a restaurant on that site.
