"The presence of any Wilderness on the Mexican border is a danger to the security of the United States."- Jim Switzer - National Association of Former Border Patrol Agents
The New Mexico Wilderness Bill, if enacted, will be disastrous for New Mexico and disastrous for America. New Mexico Senators Udal (D), a member of the Progressive Caucus, and Bingaman (D) have sponsored two conservation bills, S.874/H.R.5334 in northern NM and S.1689 in southern New Mexico’s Dona Ana County. Should these bills be enacted into law roughly 739,000 additional acres of land will be placed under the purview of the Department of the Interior (DOI). This legislation imposes Federal Wilderness Designation, the most restrictive of all federal land management designations, on 241,400 acres of lands in Dona Ana County, along with 99,150 acres of National Conservation Area (NCA) designation.
