Congressman: “Paramilitary Raid” at Bundy Ranch Was Unconstitutional

Written By : Ashley Herzog
April 19, 2014

Probably fearing a Waco-style public relations disaster, the federal Bureau of Land Management ended their standoff with the Bundy family in Nevada last weekend. Now comes the fallout: Republican Congressman Steve Stockman wrote an open letter accusing the government of conducting an illegal “paramilitary raid” against the Bundy family.

Stockman argues that–surprise, surprise–the government was abusing its authority in the Bundy standoff.

“Because of this standoff,” he wrote, “I have looked into BLM’s authority to conduct such paramilitary raids against American citizens, and it appears that BLM is acting in a lawless manner in Nevada.”…He cited the limited powers granted to the federal government, noting the bureau has no “right to assume preemptory police powers, that role being reserved to the States,” and explained “many federal laws require the federal government to seek assistance from local law enforcement whenever the use of force may become necessary.”

[A]mple evidence has surfaced indicating the standoff between the government and the Nevada ranching family is far from over. Throughout the weeklong stalemate, members of the Bundy family were physically assaulted by armed officers, numerous cows were shot dead, and protesters faced threats of gunfire for merely expressing their outrage.

Good for Stockman. It’s important for people who respect the Constitution to stay vigilant, because it’s possible the BLM will resume their attack on the Bundy family when no one is paying attention and the risk of a PR fiasco isn’t as high.
