I suggest caution in using eminent domain/executive orders in doing anything like that, as your successor can quickly reverse it. The Bears Ears monument was a minor to medium argument, but both Trump and Obama used purely executive methods.
I stand corrected. I had thought the transfers had been happening on a larger scale but see that I was mistaken. I guess that turns this question more in to a hypothetical than actual situation.
