A Nevada congressman is calling on elected officials in the state to rid a town in his district of militia members who have rallied around rancher Cliven Bundy in his battle with federal land managers.
Rep. Steven Horsford, in an address to the Clark County Democratic Convention in Las Vegas on Saturday, said hes making the request after hearing more complaints from constituents about the presence of Bundy supporters near Bunkerville, 75 miles northeast of Las Vegas.
In encampments around the Bundy ranch, self-described militia members from around the country continue to camp with handguns on their hips and heavier weaponry within reach in a show of support for Bundy.
Bundy, a states rights advocate who refuses to acknowledge the authority of the federal government, owes more than $1 million in fees and penalties for letting his cattle use government land over the past 20 years. Last month, the Bureau of Land Management stopped trying to round up his cattle after a showdown with hundreds of Bundy supporters, some of them armed.

Try it, Obamahole.
How can anyone in his district claim to feel threatened when no threats have been made?
he is also a Reid buddy.
Dear Stephen, people in hell want ice water too....
The story doesn’t name who the three concerned “constituents” are.
Hate to ask the obvious but has he cited any laws that he claims are being broken? Last I knew it wasn’t a crime to camp out, or to have guns.
Oh, yeah, he’s just a Congressman...why would he understand the law?
Notice NO names, NO dates, NO locations where these alleged crimes happened.
I will say if they are true then shame on the militias and QUIT it!
A Reid rump-swab.
Bundy needs to turn half his business into a dude ranch.
They're the same ones who,a couple of years ago,told Dirty Harry that Romney hadn't paid income taxes for ten years.
Trying to establish a free association zone, kinda like the 1st amendment zone that the BLM tried to do.
Over the years, citizens have hesitated far too much when it comes to removing corrupt politicians. It’s time to reverse that trend!
I would imagine these are just some "complaints" and not affidavits or anybody appearing in a public forum. How come the mainscream media isn't airing these "complaints"? Lord knows they would if they could.
This could get interesting...
What would the government do, and expect to get away with???
If I were there, I would be hard pressed to jay walk, spit on the sidewalk, or give law enforcement ANY reason to carry out any, for lack of a better term, “deportations”...
Since obviously, the influx of illegals have not been addressed, I guess if we are all throwing out the net far and wide, we might as well keep pointing that government failure publically...
If he is going to declare war on patriots, it's time for the patriots to declare war on him.
Time for investigations into EVERYTHING he has ever done.
Time to do to him and others like him, what was done to Palin.
Attack him and make him defend EVERYTHING.
I’ll bet you’re right.
Bundy and his friends have the 1st Amendment-protected right to peacefully assemble.
So what am I overlooking?
I would think the nearest small towns are more than happy with the increase in business.
He is from Vegas (Los Angeles East). no way he gets recalled.
“And that is why I am calling on (Gov.) Brian Sandoval, Sen. Dean Heller, the (Clark County) sheriff (Doug Gillespie) and any other elected official in Nevada to do their part to get rid of these armed separatists,” Horsford said to loud cheers from about 200 delegates.
“Separatists” ? What? I don’t think any of those Bundy supporters are advocating any such thing, there’s no breakaway movement. Sounds like Horsford is just using language to sensationalize and stigmatize good American people who just want the Federal Government to not point sniper rifles at them. The
It’s amazing how BS stops when men with rifles stand up. FU Horsford.
I believe the expression is “pound sand”. Something someone from Nevada should know about.
And on private property with permission of the owner at that.
They are taking the wrong approach to this matter. They should take all the kids out of school and have them “March for Social Justice”. A march by kids always solves the problem.
Asspress is the most loathsome of the propaganda agencies.

You can’t recall a federally elected officeholder. Impeachment is the sole recourse for that. Barring that, take his ass down in November.
Perhaps this Congressman is willing to lead the way?
Im yet to find a GOP congressional candidate in NV who isn’t pro-amnesty.
The only one I found was an underfunded Hispanic named Carlo Poliak. There is some reference to his positions.
Nevada unemployment is not a isolated predicament. To alleviate unemployment, lets begin by REVOKING green card work permits issued to immigrants, regardless of their objections, to enable U.S. CITIZENS unemployed to apply for those jobs vacated. Stringently enforce immigration laws and tattoo identification on their foreheads to identify any who dare reenter U.S. FINE, employers who deliberately hire illegal’s.
Poliak said he’s running to preserve Medicare and Social Security and push for lowering the retirement age to 60 as in some European countries. He said the federal government can pay for it by cutting subsidies to oil companies and halting tax breaks to develop green energy.
I endorsed Niger Innis in NV-4. Is he actually pro-shamnesty ?
He consulted Bush and Rubio. Hardy is pro-amnesty as well but white RINOs are easier to manage.
I don’t think either will win. Too many people will vote for the always available third party in NV.
He consulted Jeb and Rubio.
“The plan involves allowing most of the 11 million undocumented immigrants in the United States to become legal and offers citizenship to limited groups of people.”
