What are my legal rights concerning the eviction of a caretaker and his belonging from my property?

Question Details:

What are my legal rights concerning the eviction of a caretaker and his belonging from my property? I have let a family live rent free on my land in NM for the last few years. I am now selling the property and have a buyer, however the people living (essentially squatting) on on the land refuse to leave, clean up the mess they have created (junked cars, non-functional, trailers, piles and piles of trash, etc), or allow me to bring a crew to clean it up (telling me they will physically block this process and will sue me if I remove anything from the land). I am at loss on what to do.
