Trump Will Repeal and Replace It!


President Trump had the blueprint down for ending tribal sovereignty long before he went into politics. My hope was that we would be so far down his priority list that he would not get around to us.

A column by my colleague Lynn Armitage tells me that was a vain hope. She quotes Deswood Tome as asserting that our statutory citizenship is different than constitutional citizenship to our detriment.

That was once true in one sense. It could be taken away. It was conferred without our request and it theoretically could be taken back in a similar manner, but I don’t think that’s possible now.
