How Washington Is Regulating American Indians To Death

U.S. policies have turned Indian reservations into 'small third-world countries,' Naomi Schaefer Riley claims in her latest book.

 


Most Americans take property rights and law enforcement for granted. But Americans living on Indian reservations can’t do that, according to New York Post columnist Naomi Schaefer Riley.

Riley is the author of “The New Trail of Tears: How Washington Is Destroying American Indians,” released by Encounter Books on July 26. In the book, she exposes how Washington’s regulation of American Indians has led to intense poverty and crime on Indian reservations.

“One of the tribal legislators I spoke with actually said to me, ‘We are the most over-regulated race on earth,’” Riley said at a book release hosted by the Independent Women’s Forum.
