What your membership helps us accomplish

Just a few examples of our recent accomplishments include new legislation that protects royalty owners from unfair property taxation and provides new funding to compensate landowners for damages from bailouts. We also filed a legal brief that supported a Supreme Court decision protecting landowners in disputes with oil companies and we expanded Border Patrol cooperation with landowners and local law enforcement. In the coming months, we hope to accomplish even more. However, we couldn’t do it without the generous contributions of members just like you!

Over 400,000 illegal crossings per year is an unsustainable situation that strains our law-enforcement and judicial institutions to the point of breaking. Without greatly increased resources, our legal system will always be ill-equipped to deal with these kinds of numbers.
