Tribal sovereignty at risk to Kristi Noem, GOP

In the wake of tribal nations offering sanctuary to deportees two extremist US Representatives, Kristi Noem of South Dakota and Trey Gowdy of South Carolina are pushing a bill to erode sovereignty even further. South Dakota is not a Public Law 280 district that gives the state's law enforcement industry jurisdiction on reservations.
Brent Leonhard, attorney for the Umatilla Confederated Tribes of Oregon said, “There was no consultation on this bill and it will have far reaching negative consequences for tribes and will disrupt tribal/federal/state relations. The bill would allow US Marshalls to arrest tribal members on their reservations with state warrants without having to comply with any tribal/state MOU (memorandum of understanding) or tribal extradition process.” The Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe vociferously expressed its concern about the bill.

These nations should secede from South Dakota and other red states then petition for an enabling act that would create America's 51st State.
