Native American Tribe Issues Bizarre Response to Kristi Noem’s Border Remarks

One Native American tribe has banned South Dakota Kristi Noem from visiting their reservation over remarks she made about the illegal immigration crisis at the southern border. 

As reported by RedState yesterday, Noem warned that Mexican drug cartels are using the southern border to enter the U.S. and wreak havoc across the country.

She said in a speech earlier this week:

Tribe President Frank Star Comes Out of the Pine Ridge Reservation accused Noem of using the plight of Native Americans to get Donald Trump re-elected. 

“Due to the safety of the Oyate, effective immediately, you are hereby Banished from the homelands of the Oglala Sioux Tribe!” the president said in a statement on Friday, according to Politico.

Star Comes Out said he took issue with Noem’s comments because many of those entering the U.S. are indigenous people who are merely “in search of jobs and a better life.”

“They don’t need to be put in cages, separated from their children like during the Trump Administration, or be cut up by razor wire furnished by, of all places, South Dakota,” he remarked. 

Noem responded to his remarks in a statement Sunday:

What makes the reaction of Star Comes Out all the stranger is that his reservations are indeed plagued by criminal activity, some of which comes from illegal immigrants who crossed the southern border. 

Last November, the tribe even declared a state of emergency over the lack of federal funding to combat skyrocketing crime across the reservation, as the AP reported at the time:

It, therefore, sounds like Mr. Star Comes Out should focus on getting his priorities in order. Noem, meanwhile, is rightfully doing all she can to help Texas and other border states prevent the ongoing invasion at the southern border. Long may this continue.
