A pending proposal from President Obama to create a vast new wilderness area on the U.S.-Mexico border is drawing criticism from Republican lawmakers and local law enforcement officials who say it would significantly impede border security.

The Obama administration is set to designate a 600,000 acre national monument in south-central New Mexico to be managed and controlled by the Bureau of Land Management, a federal agency. The designated land will be called the Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks National Monument, and environmentalists have long-sought the designation.

Security problem? What security problem? Once the lyin' king proclaims the land "sacred", you know the coyote's and the trespassers that would transit the area will move elsewhere out of fear of violating US law. Errrr. Never mind. Might as well go ahead and cut some trails for them and don't forget to put up watering stations too. I think this is also one of the "earth island" areas the man and the biosphere nut bags have been after for a long time. You know. To create a "corridor" for those lovable little critters.

I have been to the area. Dry. Dry, dry, dry. Can’t farm it, can’t develop it. Dry. Is their oil or gas? I don’t know. If Oil and gas is present go get it. It’s not good for anything else.

Take the Senate in Nov and defund the BLM in 2015!

Zero, zip, nadda, dollars to the BLM, everything go back to the states to manage.

I have also been to the Organ mountains.They bump up against WSMR.

New Mexico watermelon greenies have long been foaming at the mouth wanting this done. Unfortunately, i don’t think there is enough local opposition to stop it.

The area only supports a few of the very hardy desert animals. I do mean a very few.

By design?

Too many on both sides of the border are benefitting from the free flow of illicit drugs.

Too many in high positions on both sides of the border are benefitting from the free flow of illicit drugs.

That’s not what its about, those are their rationalizations/excuses. Its about killing off roading because they hate anyone being outdoors who isn’t on a 2 week sojourn hike.
