A standoff took place at the ranch, over grazing rights and land use issues. A citizen militia protecting the property caused the Bureau of Land Management to retreat.
Since the end of the standoff, militia members have kept a close watch on the property. Steven Horsford, a congressman from Las Vegas, is claiming the citizens are stopping drivers, asking for identification.
The lawmaker has asked the local sheriff to investigate the allegations, which also include reports of militia in local schools.
Horsford said, "We must respect individual constitutional liberties, but residents of and visitors to Clark County should not be expected to live under the persistent watch of an armed militia."
