…In the great big give-away to environmentalist organizations and the tourism industry, Mr. Obama has designated half a million acres to Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks National Monument under the 1906 Antiquties Act, though half the land will remain a wilderness area. Republicans in Congress suggested he designate 50,000 acres to the park but Mr. Obama rejected that in favor of this enormous land grab along the Mexican border. It will be impossible to keep the drug cartels from using the land as a refuge and a portal for smugglers.
He has the support of the two Democratic senators of New Mexico.
This land grab will also shut off grazing rights for many ranchers. It will take the land off the tax rolls and out of potential developers hands which falls in line with the goals of The Wildlands Project. The Wildlands Project plans to preserve half the land in the United States for plant life and animals. Humans will of necessity be moved into congested urban habitats.
The Organ Pipe land in Arizona is already filled with drug dealers and it’s almost identical to the planned New Mexico park. The forest fires being started in these areas are almost always started by the bad guys to either distract the border patrol or to be rescued.
There is no way to protect the area from cartels and potential terrorists. There is no doubt that this is the case because the land is already a haven for them.
The Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument had the following warning posted on its website ‘Due to our proximity to the International Boundary with Mexico, some areas near the border are closed for construction and visitor safety concerns.’ The warning goes on to list roads that are closed indefinitely to vehicle traffic. It also noted on another page that ‘visitors should be aware that drug smuggling routes pass through the park.’
Both of those pages have been taken down…..
