Letter For Your Congressperson on Disenrollment Please Send

There is a letter circulating that should be sent to your congressperson.  It reminds them that civil and human rights are being abused in Indian Country.   They just passed the VAWA (Violence Against Women Act) to protect Indian women, NOW they need to take it a step further and protect Indians from their own corrupt tribal chairmen and councils.

Honorable Congressperson 
I’m writing to you to waive tribal sovereign immunity for the Commissioner of Indian Affairs Delegation of Authority Regarding Tribal Enactments Section 18 Paragraph (3) which states Tribal enactments disenrolling persons found not to meet the established enrollment criteria. The Commissioner’s approval of such action shall be subject to appeal to the Secretary of the Interior.
Paragraph (4) The Commissioner shall forward to the Secretary, with a recommendation, ordinances, resolution, or contracts which, in the opinion of the Commissioner are: Inconsistent with an act of Congress or with a treaty or with tribal constitution or charter under which the ordinance, resolution, or contract was adopted, enacted, or negotiated; or should be disapproved or rescinded for any other reason.
Paragraph (5) Notwithstanding the provision of section 25 of this order, the Commissioner shall not redelegate the authority granted in this paragraph to any officer or employee who pursuant to a tribal constitution or charter passes upon ordinance, resolution, or contracts.
By waiving tribal sovereign immunity to enforce the Commissioner of Indian Affairs Delegation of Authority Regarding Tribal Enactments you support Justice and civil rights. You give a voice to the people that have been illegally disenrolled and as it reads you enforce tribal constitution and bylaws so no disenrollment can be at a whim of a few that seek power and money and then use tribal sovereignty to hide their crimes.  I implore you give a voice to the down trodden so we can hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness
