Court: Texas Can Sue Feds Over BLM Land Grab

“Texas will not stand for the federal government’s infringement upon Texas land”

Court: Texas Can Sue Feds Over BLM Land Grab
Adan Salazar & Mikael Thalen |

A US District Court Monday cleared the way for the State of Texas to join landowners in a lawsuit against the federal Bureau of Land Management.

Governor Greg Abbott announced the “good news” yesterday, tweeting the state would be allowed to intervene in a complaint filed by nine private landowners, a county sheriff and three Texas counties challenging the federal agency’s “unconstitutional and arbitrary seizure of thousands of acres of private property along the Red River.”

The lawsuit, which Governor Abbott had previously thrown his support behind, contends the BLM is encroaching on private land in violation of citizens’ Fourth and Fifth Amendment rights, as well as “infringing upon the sovereignty of local county governments.”

In a press release entitled, “Texans’ Property Rights Must Be Preserved,” State Attorney General Ken Paxton explained the BLM is “inaccurately and arbitrarily” attempting to assert ownership of some 90,000 acres along the Red River.

“Washington D.C. needs to hear, loud and clear, that Texas will not stand for the federal government’s infringement upon Texas land and the property rights of the people who live here,” Paxton said. “The federal government must follow the law and recognize our correct borders, consistent with decisions of the U.S. Supreme Court defining the boundary formed by the Red River.”

Landowners, including Harold rancher Ken Aderholt, claim the BLM was ignoring land deeds bestowed to them by the Lone Star State nearly 75 years ago.

“The BLM is saying we should have never had a deed to it. That Texas should have never produced that deed,” Aderholt said last year.

Since the 2014 standoff at the Bundy Ranch in Nevada, the BLM has repeatedly found itself receiving negative coverage its controversial policies toward land acquisition.

Just last January, footage from a 2005 retirement celebration for Mojave National Preserve Superintendent Mary Martin showed BLM employees openly celebrating the common agency practice of taking land from private property owners for pennies on the dollar.

    Where was Governor Abbot when they tried to grab Cliven Bundy’s land? Where was the District Attorney? Funny, I didn’t see pictures of any of them at any of these protests.

    Don’t place too much stock in these politicians and keep them pressure on them. They are supposed to be representing the people, not their self-interests.

    • I would assume that they were doing what they were elected to do…running the State of Texas. I don’t think any governor or state AG in America would get personally involved in a dispute between a rancher and the feds over land rights in a different state.

        You’re right. They only involve themselves when it suits their political advantage, otherwise they could care less.

Just look at us. Everything is backwards, everything is upside down. Doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, psychiatrists destroy minds, scientists destroy truth, major media destroys information, religions destroy spirituality and governments destroy freedom.

The United States has been declared under martial law. All constitutional rights have been suspended. Anyone interfering with the collection of urine samples will be shot. Anyone failing to attend morning school prayer will be shot. The number one enemy of progress is questions. National security is more important than individual rights. Sports broadcasts will proceed as scheduled. Shut up, be happy, obey all orders without question. At last everything is done for you.
