ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – New Mexico's top land official hasn't been able to reach mutual ground with federal authorities over the disputed use of a small stretch of state trust land along the border.

So, taking matters into his own hands, State Land Commissioner Aubrey Dunn is planning to sell the parcel of land, according to the Santa Fe New Mexican. 

Dunn posted "No Trespassing" signs in the area months ago to block U.S. Border Patrol operations after he said the feds weren't paying to use the land, even though they built part of the border wall and a road on the land.

They haven't been able to settle on a lease agreement.
