Tribal sovereignty hangs in the balance at Supreme Court

 


Regardless of political ideology or party, Americans recognize the importance of following the basic rules of government laid out in the U.S. Constitution.

As President Ronald Reagan said in 1988 at the confirmation of Justice Kennedy, “The federal judiciary is too important to be made a political football and the American people should expect … for the Senate to get to work and act.”
