Mark Macarro of Pechanga in Washington DC to Steal Water From Temecula Indians

There is an Indian Affairs Senate committee meeting today to discuss and approve the Pechanga Water Rights bill, which will change the way that Allottees are determined.

Please send this follow up letter:

To the Indian Affairs Committee. Maria Cantwell, Tim Tester, Jon Tester, Tom Udall, Al Franken,    Mark Begich, Brian Schatz, Heidi Heitkamp, John Barrasso, John McCain, Lisa Murkowski, John Hoeven, Michael Crapo, Deb Fischer. 
I’m writing you on the Pechanga water bill S1219 and HR2508. This bill give all benefits to Pechanga and not one allottee that has been disenrolled or band from Pechanga will see any benefits that this bill say it will bring. The senate and congress seem to be concerned with Syria a true sovereign country and protecting its people from a corrupt government. But lack the willingness to uphold civil rights and protect Native Americans from criminal acts from corrupt tribal governments that do not follow their own tribal constitutions and bylaws and commit fraud and civil right violations right here in the United States of America. There are federal laws right now that need to be enforced like the Indian civil rights act of 1968. For Tribes that disenroll against their tribal laws and constitution there is Commission of Authority Regarding Tribal Enactments Section 18 Paragraph 3) 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, ordinance, 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under which the ordinance, resolution or contract was adopted, enacted, or negotiated; or should be disapproved or rescinded for any other reason.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.
 If this bill is not killed then the amendment needs to be added
Tribal enactments disenrolling allottees not found to meet the established enrollment criteria. The commissioner’s approval of such action shall be subject to appeal to the Secretary of the Interior. The commissioner shall forward to the secretary with a recommendation, ordinance, resolution or contract with a treaty or with Tribal Constitution and membership criteria set by the tribe or charter, under which the ordinance, resolution or contract was adopted, enacted or negotiated or should be disapproved or rescinded for any other reason. Notwithstanding the commissioner shall not redelegate the authority granted in this paragraph to any officer or employee who pursuant to a tribe constitution or charter passes upon ordinance, resolution or contracts
Recently I saw Senator John McCain on the news concerning the Syria crises. He was playing poker and his nonchalant reaction was too laugh and says he lost thousands of dollars. This allottee water rights and the disenrollment is a grave matter to us. The disenrollment has left members of these familys destitute and homeless. If it weren’t for the allotment they would be homeless with no place to go. I hope Senator John McCain shows some concern for their plight concerning this bill and if not I hope it does not reflect the attitude of the Indian Affairs Committee on this matter.

I just saw the video of the LEGISLATIVE HEARING to receive testimony on the following bills: S. 1448, S. 1219, S. 1447.
It is very interesting how Kevin Washburn mentioned regarding the Allotment issue, he said “It is a reaming Issue” and the Mrs. Cantwell then stated “ Its an Issue of Difficulties or Administering it” which Kevin Washburn fumbles around and not giving any intelligible answers.
Mark Macarro then make himself into a babbling fool. He did make an interesting but also scary comment regarding this bill, he stated “The settlement shouldn’t affect the rights of the Allottees” “The status of Allotted land held by former members is complicated” then his last statement he said “The water code In place, we don’t think it will have an effect with any Allottees”.
When I hear it Shouldn’t or I don’t think it will have an effect on us, That mean they have plans to screw us over.

I totally agree, Pechanga "water codes" can be changed. Water act settlements need to address this issue to protect allotted rights.

O Pechanga said...

If you are on Twitter, @CantwellPress is the chairmans address. Let her know to keep looking into Pechanga's corruption and attempts to STEAL our water rights.

Pechanga Water Committee is already targeting us "former members allottees". Raymond Basquez Jr. a member of the PWC is telling everyone on the Rez that he is planning on raising the water bill to "Former Member Allottees", double of what other Tribal Members now pay. And if we don't pay our Water Bill on time we will have our water to our homes turned off! Macarro and his henchmen are trying to drive us off our land!
