In response to the growing confusion over disputed land along the Texas-Oklahoma border, U.S. Sens. John Cornyn and Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and U.S. Rep. Mac Thornberry, TX-13, have introduced Senate and House legislation to direct the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to transfer any land in Texas along the Red River to landowners who can prove through official records that they own the land outright.
Legislation Introduced To Provide Fairness, Certainty For Texas Landowners Along The Red River
The bill would:
1. Direct the BLM to relinquish and transfer by quit claim deed any land in Texas along the Red River to a landowner who can prove through official State or county records that they fully own the land.
2. Require the BLM to issue a public notice of the process and accept all legitimate claims of ownership.
3. Establish a 120-day time period in which the BLM must act on a request.
4. Ensure that BLM does not treat any land as public land for the Resource Management Plan until the Secretary is sure they are not subject to transfer.
OPINION: It's a sad, sad day when U.S. Citizens MUST DEFEND themselves from their own Federal Government.
Haven't we been doing that since Lincoln started the War of Northern Aggression against the south a century and a half ago? They've been plundering ever since.
On April 10, 1861, knowing that resupplies were on their way from the North to the federal garrison at Fort Sumter in the harbor of Charleston, South Carolina, provisional Confederate forces in the city demanded the fort’s surrender. The fort’s commander, Major Robert Anderson, refused. On April 12, the Confederates opened fire with cannon. At 2:30 p.m. the following day, Major Anderson surrendered.
Glad to see Texas trying to protect land owners property rights against the feds though. Nothing worse than federal carpetbaggers screwing over US citizens.
The American Civil War, 1861–1865, resulted from long-standing sectional differences and questions not fully resolved when the United States Constitution was ratified in 1789.

So...the BLM owns the land anyway?
I thought I was arguing that point for months now.
