But you see no problem in the US Government spending millions of taxpayer dollars in funding Church non-profits to settle "Refugees" from other countries in the US and giving them cash stipends for the rest of their lives?

Now is the time to consider setting up some type of sovereign nation tax system on gameing.
This would have to be set up and run by all the tribes working with each other for the betterment of all indian children.
The us government should refuse to step in and fund
any additional grants on sovereign land held and not taxed.

Nice. More federal control over our schools. Actually, we should do the children of Red Lake and all of Minnesota a huge favor and abolish the public education system as we know it. The whole system was established to systematically dumb people down and inculcate them with mindsets of dependence on others...particularly for a livelihood.
