Ryan Zinke recommends Trump shrink two more USA national monuments

Ryan Zinke recommends Trump shrink two more USA national monuments

The company said Trump's decision "undermines the integrity" of the Antiquities Act, which is used to designate and protect national monuments.

The new page prompts visitors to take action with Patagonia as they "stand alongside over 350 businesses, conservation groups and Native American tribes that have come together on this issue to protect public lands". The court cases are likely to drag on for years, maybe even into a new presidency.

Patagonia also plans to file a lawsuit over the Bears Ears decision, according to a press release. A coalition of Native American tribes also said it would sue the Trump Administration over the reduction of the Bears Ears Monument.

Navajo Nation Attorney General Ethel Branch said only Congress, not the president, has the power to reduce a national monument, something that the tribal coalition plans to argue in court.

Trump says Utah's lands should not be managed by "distant bureaucrats in Washington" and said he was reversing federal overreach.

Roughly 3,000 demonstrators lined up near the State Capitol to protest President Trump's announcement.

Trump said in Salt Lake City that Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument will be reduced by half, from almost 3,000 square miles (7,770 square kilometers) to 1,569 square miles (4,064 square kilometers). A smaller group gathered in support, including some who said they favor potential drilling or mining there that could create jobs.

Opening the land to energy interests may decrease populations of trophy-class animals - such as big horn sheep, deer and elk - which rely on resources located in the land that was Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante.

Bears Ears, created almost a year ago, will be reduced to 315 square miles.

Grand Staircase-Escalante will become three separate monuments - Grand Staircase, Escalante Canyon, and Kaiparowits - totaling more than 1 million acres.

Zinke accompanied President Trump aboard Air Force One, as did Utah's Republican U.S. senators, Orrin Hatch and Mike Lee.

President Trump argued that the people of Utah know best how to care for their land.

Trump acted on a recommendation by Zinke, who also has urged that two other large national monuments in the West be reduced in size, potentially opening up thousands of acres of land revered for natural beauty and historical significance to mining, logging and other development. Hatch and other Utah Republican leaders pushed President Trump to launch the review, saying the monuments designated by the former Democratic presidents locked up too much federal land. He said the decision would "give back your voice".

"Public lands will once again be for public use", President Trump said to cheers.

Patagonia vowed to sue the White House and changed its website to address the "illegal move" in a bold declaration that reads, "The President Stole Your Land".

Democrats and environmentalists accuse Trump and Zinke of engaging in a secretive process aimed at helping industry groups that have donated to Republican political campaigns.

Hatch, who introduced President Trump, said that when "you talk, this president listens" and that President Trump promised to help him with "federal overreach". For example, if a future president expanded a national monument's borders, the next president may reduce them. "And the Antiquities Act was never meant to prevent, it was meant to protect". The Antiquities Act also expressly states that presidents should protect the important sites while using the smallest amount of land possible. He declined to specify how many acres he wants to remove from monument status, stressing that the administration is working with Nevada's governor and congressional delegation to find a solution.

Zinke, a former Republican congressman from Montana, spoke on a call with reporters on Tuesday.
