RESPONSE to President Trump’s comments and executive order attacking national monuments

DENVER—President Trump signed an executive order this morning targeting dozens of national monuments protected in recent years. The Center for Western Priorities released the following statement from Executive Director Jennifer Rokala:

“President Trump has launched an all-out assault on our national monuments and public lands. He made it clear today that he will eliminate protections for some of America’s most spectacular lands, waters, and cultural sites, opening them up to drilling and mining.

“This action is an affront to America’s public lands legacy, the $887 billion outdoor recreation economy, and the millions of Americans who hunt, fish, hike, and camp in our national monuments. The president is setting himself up for years of legal trouble when he tries to erase protections that ensure public access to America’s lands and waters.”
