White House press secretary Jay Carney told reporters Tuesday that President Obama will create the Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks National Monument in south central New Mexico — an area encompassing nearly 500,000 acres.


Republicans are condemning this as the biggest “land grab” of his time in office.
“The President’s decision to section off one-fifth of Dona Ana County is misguided, and shows his contempt for the legislative branch,” New Mexico Republican Rep. Steve Pearce said in a statement. “With this land grab, the President is once again going out of his way to derail any attempt for form a consensus, and do what local people want.”


Pearce introduced a bill last year that would have only designated 54,800 acres of the Organ Mountains as a national monument — only about one-tenth of the acreage of Obama’s designation.
“Residents of Dona Ana County deserve the assurance that first responders and Border Patrol can protect the public, flood control structures will be maintained, ranchers will have their grazing rights, and hunters can have the access they’ve always enjoyed,” Pearce added.


Tuesday’s designation will be the 11th time Obama has used his executive powers to designate federal lands as a national monument. Last year, Obama designated five new national monuments — the biggest one being a 240,000 acre chunk of New Mexico.


“By establishing the monument, the President will permanently protect more than 496,000 acres to preserve the prehistoric, historic and scientific values of the area for the benefit of all Americans,” Carney said.
The administration touted a recent study which said creating the Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks National Monument could generate $7.4 million in economic activity every year from tourism and new businesses moving into the area.

More Obama, Washington, D.C. Elitism - START TAKING Eastern Lands! I guess they think the Buffer of the lands east of Kansas will save them.
Here is what the Feds say they control in the West - enough is enough but it is not enough for for Obama...Land is free West of the Mississippi and the people do not matter...
