Obama’s Border ‘Monument’ Impedes Critical Security
Obama wants the border to be easy for new government dependents to arrive.

Today President Obama announced the creation of a 600,000 acre national monument in New Mexico near the U.S.-Mexico border. Obama will bypass the Senate and Congress in order to declare the sanctuary, called the Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks National Monument. In a statement provided to Breitbart Texas, Speaker of the House John Boehner said that the new monument greatly undermines border security.
“For many months I have warned that the president’s fondness for unilateral action has created widespread doubt among the American people that he and his administration can be counted on to enforce any law he signs, particularly when it comes to securing our nation’s borders and reforming our immigration system,” Boehner said. “Once again, the president has chosen to bypass the legislative branch — and, in this case, do so in a manner that adds yet another challenge in our ongoing efforts to secure our Southern border. At a time of continued cartel violence in Mexico, we should not be putting any additional restraints on efforts to protect our borders.”
Border Patrol may have limited access to the Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks National Monument. It will be at the discretion of the Obama Administration how much access agents get to the land and if they are allowed to drive vehicles on it.
