PHOENIX (AP) - The Navajo Nation is not letting go of a fight against what it says are illegal hemp farms cultivated through immigrant labor.

A member of the tribe and head of the operation, Dineh Benally says his business partnership with a Las Vegas dispensary has provided dozens of jobs on the vast reservation that includes parts of New Mexico, Arizona and Utah.

A New Mexico judge, however, approved last week a temporary restraining order keeping Benally from running the Shiprock area farms, The Arizona Republic reported.
