Texas AG to Feds: ‘Come And Take’ Disputed Land
Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott has a message for the Bureau of Land Management about disputed land along the Oklahoma-Texas border: “Come and take it.”
Abbott was referring to a potential land grab of 90,000 acres that belong to Texas residents. According to Breitbart Texas, the federal government is considering taking the land, which stretches 116 miles along the Red River.
“I am about ready to go to the Red River and raise a ‘Come and Take It’ flag to tell the feds to stay out of Texas,” Abbott said.
Abbott wrote a letter to BLM Director Neil Kornze about the matter, expressing his concerns about the government’s interest in taking the land from Texans, who have owned it for decades.
“I am deeply concerned about the notion that the Bureau of Land Management believes the federal government has the authority to swoop in and take land that has been owned and cultivated by Texas landowners for generations,” Abbott wrote in the letter.
