Obama Administration is set to unilaterally designate a 600,000 acre national monument in New Mexico near the U.S.-Mexican border. The sanctuary, which will be called the Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks National Monument, has drawn sharp criticism from law enforcement who say it will impede border security. "By creating this monument, President Obama is ensuring a pathway to get drugs into the country" Zack Taylor, Chairman of the National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers, told Breitbart Texas.
The Obama Administration will ultimately control how much access Border Patrol agents will have to the land, including whether or not they will be able to use vehicles.
Taylor, who has 26 years of border security experience, pointed out that one of the most dangerous cities in the world, Juarez, Mexico, is right across the New Mexico border.
Obama is creating the monument without approval from the Senate or Congress by using the Antiquities Act, a means by which presidents can unilaterally lock up land for environmental reasons.
Taylor concluded, "The Obama Administration is using 'environmental concerns' as a tool to bypass Congress and take over the land. By doing so, he is completely ignoring national security and public safety."

Barry has found a new way to ensure more illegal immigration.
His motto is “anything to hurt America”
what in the effinf-eff is this moron trying to do to this country?
If he WAS an enemy infiltrator WHAT WOULD HE DO DIFFERENTLY?
Yep that’s the plan as far as I can see. He has 2.5 more years to destroy this country and he’s not going to let any grass grow under his feet.
Look for the food shortages to start in the first part of 2016. I feel pretty sure he is planning martial law to extend his time in office to life.
Only cartels benefit?
Far from it. Many people in high positions in government and business benefit from the free flow of ‘commerce’ across the border. If they were not, they could close the border so tight that field mice would need passports. They don’t seal it, because they are profiting from the free flow of ‘commerce’.
How much money is being funneled back to the Marxist government by the ‘cartels’ to insure their future profitable operations?? Always...FOLLOW THE MONEY!
I have said for a long time that Obama hates Christianity, the Constitution, and capitalism. This action just proves that he wants to hurt of America more.
