Are Tribal Membership Moratoriums ANY Different Than Trump's Muslim Moratorium?

Many Tribes have moratoriums on membership in place.  Most have been implemented after they opened up lucrative casinos.  Some are keeping rightful descendants OUT of the tribe.  Some are related to the people keeping them out.

Recently GOP Presidential candidate Donald Trump suggested keeping out Muslims from our country.  He immediately caught fire from liberals who were aghast at the suggestion that we'd keep people out based on religious ideology.

But is that any different than tribes keeping people out because they come from the wrong family?

At Pechanga, we've written about the "Moratorium People" the Petra Tosobal descendants.  They certainly belong.  You can read about it here: Moratorium People

Tribal officials had told him he and his family are not on the rolls, he said, and they won’t get considered for membership until a moratorium on new enrollments is lifted now extended past 2010. His family members, who number more than 100, have stacks of documents that they say they submitted to the enrollment committee 15 years ago.  

How is that different from Muslim refugees who are looking for a better life?  Some may be coming here because they have family here.   Same with tribal descendants.  They have family in the tribe, but the tribe keeps them out.   Where are the howls of protest?  

Is it easy to scream hateful things because it's TRUMP?   Why isn't the left of aisle politicians looking HERE, to stop the hateful practice of moratoriums to membership?

Totally different. Stupidity in trying to relate.

Both designed to keep people out. Liberals turning a blind eye

Unrelated comment - Maybe you can place it on its own highlight. Mark Macarro, Pechanga Tribal Chairman, was caught cheating on his wife Holly Macarro and she has kicked him out of the house. He is now staying with cousin Victor at his house in Temecula. That part is confirmed. The unconfirmed part is that he was caught sleeping with another elected/appointed Pechanga official. For all that remember, he did the same thing with Betty Macarro. Hard to change your dirty habits Mark.

I thought he divorced Betty because she became too old for him after he began receiving per cap and robbing the Pechanga people. Maybe him and victor are sleeping together, greek style. Absolute power corrupts!! Relating to the post, trump and macarro are both power hungry sociopaths, so I see the similarity in their sick actions and logic. A'ho

What a dumb article.

I call bullshit on the Macarro thing. He learned his lesson with the first one. He wouldn't blow it again and possibly ruin Holly's chance to be on Hillary's team.

PROVE IT OR SHUT UP....

Clintons have the same cheating ways, Hillary would definitely support Holly it's probably being broadcast by the Macarros to get Holly locked in to Hillary club. CPP
