Over my dead body: Tribe aims to block border wall on Arizona land

The Tohono O’odham are a sub-set of the Pima Indians, and occupy part of southern Arizona, with 75 miles of border with Mexico.  If we don’t make the fence along their lands, we can safe a million bucks or so in construction.



Personally, I think this is a wonderful idea.   I recommend that the government start building the border wall at the edge of the tribal lands, extending away from them in both directions.

The results of this construction process will be to funnel illegal aliens into the tribe and then let the tribe deal with the massive influx of crime , disease, and drugs.  Just ensure than since the tribe is a “sovereign nation” that border checkpoints be established all along the lands to watch for illegals coming from them.   Just need to remind the tribe that they won’t be getting any additional funds from Uncle Sugar to beef up their police force

  1. This, too, can be walled. Once walled, however, you’re on your own. No more subsidies. No more payments. No more charity. You’re ON YOUR OWN!

      The drug cartels have ophisticated tunnelscomplete with lights and water under the border.
      I was on Istael’s site. They asked me to give a message to Donal Trump

      Place censors all along the border that alerts Border Guards to their EXACT location.

    Incredible. I hope one day the true Americans of this land, i.e the Native, will get back their land and sclap the whites. You are only hate, violence & stupidity. You bastards do not deserve the title of human beings.

    • And what, pray tell, would you have us do, Laurent?

    • Time for a little history lesson.
      A lot of the land was bought from the Indians. When the settlers first came to Pennsylvania they got along pretty well with the local Indians. Trading goods and food stuffs back and forth. And the Indians had no words in their language for “ownership.” everything belonged to everyone else collectively.
      Nearly everyone had to live off the land and as more and more settlers came, more farmers developed the land. Everybody was happy for a while. Then, since modern fertilizer wasn’t widely available those farm lands eventually wouldn’t produce enough, so a continual expansion moved north and west. One Indian chief sold some of the local land for this expansion and the big chief up in new York state said, “Wait a minute, that belongs to us as well. That is when the trouble started.
      There were no where near enough Indians in the continental US to ever stop the white man from coming. And some had their numbers reduced due to lack of an immune system to prevent death from exposure to the diseases brought from
      the old world.
      Ancestors on my mother’s side, the Quaker Ogdens, came over on the second trip of Wiliam Penn’s ship the “Welcome” in 1654. They somehow manage to keep their scalps. And the Quakers were not famous for “hate, violence or stupidity.”
      I suggest that you temper your language and offer an apology or you won’t be around here for very long Mr. Jolissaint.

      You certainly don’t seem like much of a Jolly Saint to me.

    Outstanding idea, start the fence to exclude the Tohono, when you get to the Colorado River swing north and exclude California while we’re at it. From that point forward we break full relations with both and NOONE passes through a port of entry into the US w/o paying a heavy fee and having a US approved passport. Withhold ALL water rights and access to both entities.

    The FHA website has an excellent article about the limitations of rights of federal and state governments over tribal lands. I’m keenly aware of this, living on land that once was populated by the Cherokee Nation. There are two active tribal areas within 60 miles of here: the town (and casino) of Cherokee NC, and the new casino in Murphy NC. Both these areas are set off from surrounding lands by legal boundaries. Within those boundaries, members of the Cherokee tribe are able to operate games of chance, sell tobacco products without collecting the usual taxes, and other variances.

    The Bureau of Indian Affairs has set out many guidelines as to federal and state government access to Indian lands. Presumably this would cover the construction of a fence or wall. Read here: https://www.fhwa.dot.gov/real_estate/uniform_act/acquisition/acqeas/page03.cfm

  7. What a great idea……I live in Arizona and the wall is very much needed!! If they don’t want the wall, let them deal with the illegals!

    Just an aside note to Safespace – fir the first time in history there is an “Indian” in the top ranks of the BIA. He is, I believe, a Navajo.
