kristie Noem banned by tribe

A South Dakota tribe has banned Republican Gov. Kristi Noem from the Pine Ridge Reservation following her remarks on deterring immigration at the U.S.-Mexico border.

“Due to the safety of the Oyate, effective immediately, you are hereby Banished from the homelands of the Oglala Sioux Tribe!” Tribe President Frank Star Comes Out said in a statement on Friday.

Oyate” means people or nation.

Star Comes Out accused Noem of using the border issues as a way to get former president Donald Trump re-elected and increase her chance of being his choice for vice president.

The tribal leader said some migrants coming to the U.S.-Mexico border are in search of a "better life" and are indigenous people from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Mexico.
