Rounds aims to expunge 'offensive' Native American laws

 

February 7, 2017



Sen. Mike Rounds is taking aim at outdated and "offensive" statutes imposed on Native Americans stretching back more than 100 years to try to assimilate or subjugate tribes that are still part of current law even though they haven't been enforced in decades.

"We took a look at these laws that are way outdated — we went and picked out some of the most absurd and asked that they be taken off the books," he told the Washington Examiner. "Some are just crazy."
