Hispanic ranchers dealt blow in lengthy battle over grazing

FILE – In this Sept. 30, 2015, file photo, a group of young farmers and ranchers stand up as advocates speak about discrimination and civil rights violations involving Latinos and women during a news conference in Albuquerque, N.M. A federal judge has dismissed claims by Hispanic ranchers along the New Mexico-Colorado border who allege the U.S. Forest Service ignored the social and economic consequences of limiting grazing on land that had been used by their families for centuries. The ranchers say they are disappointed, since they saw the case as a way to validate concerns about discrimination and civil rights violations that have been documented over the years.
