That area is fairly remote. The elevation in Amalia itself is 8,146 feet. That place has to get cold in the Winter. Not to much in the area for shopping.
Starting their own little Rocky Mountain Somalia.
The Amalia zip code has a population density of approximately 1 person per square mile (200). Not to mention these guys would stand out among the locals.
I had a relative who lived in N. central NM at that approx. elevation. He said it would drop to 30 below zero in the winter at times.
