One of the many overlapping Federal political police agencies created under Bush II as part of the suspension of the United States Constitution and the abrogation of American civil liberties which took place following the events of September 11th, 2001.

The indians brought it upon themselves by not signing the treaty that soldiers were sent in to enforce that it be
Since it was said that the states voluntarily joined the union, they could devide that the federal government went over its borders and pick and choose what federal laws they want to follow (United States History 1). The Alien and Sedition Acts severely detracted from natural rights, such as the freedom of speech. When the first ten amendments were ratified, citizens were promised the freedom of speech, allowing all humans to give their opinion about the government without punishment. The Alien and Sedition Acts, however, prohibited anybody from speaking negatively about the government. Berns, an American constitutional law and political philosophy
Take Back Our land: Tecumseh Speech to the Osages “We must be united” was the plea from Tecumseh to the Osage tribe. In 1811, Tecumseh, known as the “Greatest Indian”, gave a speech pleading with the Osage tribe that they should unite together to fight against the white man (Tecumseh, 231). He goes on to tell how they had given the white man everything they needed to recover health when they entered their land but in return the white man had become the enemy. The speech to the Osages by Tecumseh illustrates the dangers of the white men to the Indian tribes, and why the tribes should unite together against the white man.
Hello Tamara Thank you for the insight on the federal Indian termination policies durning the 1950’s,and our selfish acts in attempting to move Indians off reservations and into subruban areas, I feel that justice could never be made for the todays native americans simply because the suffering we put their ansestors through could never take away the tears or pain we inflicted on them ,even though our federal government had even initiated a policy of removal as well as termination of the native americans under this particular policy that was souly created so the Native American people would no longer be government wards on reservations which todays era they are entiltled for the most psrt “subject to the same laws and entitled to the same privileges
Attorney General Ashcroft does not have the legal right to threaten physicians with revoking their license since, only seven years before Oregon passed the Act which allowed to assist their patients in death. Some may believe that the Attorney General took his personal and moral opinion to work, where he could change law to his preference. The District court agreed with the statement above, therefore, they concluded that Attorney General Ashcroft did not have the authority to override a state 's decision regarding what is or is not a "legitimate medical practice" and that Ashcroft exceeded his authority under the CSA. In July 2005, Oregon v. Ashcroft changes to Gonzales v. Oregon.
Grant also established the Indian Appropriation Act which “ended tribal recognition and the treaty system to make all Indians wards of the state” (http://us-presidents.insidegov.com/l/20/Ulysses-S-Grant). Lastly, another major legislation was passed was the Civil Rights Act of 1870 which “made it a federal crime to deprive of anyone of his civil or political rights by interfering with the right to vote.”
Now I understand why in the preface he made a disclaimer where he cites Title 5, Code of Federal regulations. I agree when at the end of the book he mentions "we will find communities of violence in Borderlands yesterday, today and tomorrow ', but it is impossible to compare today 's violence with the violence committed two hundred years
The author is saying that the Americans in Texas were trying to show that they are superior to Mexico. They showed this by trying to convert the laws in Texas to their laws, or rules and to have them follow their ways.

This was believe by the Sioux nation to be a complete violation of the treaty of Laramie in 1868. In 1920 the Sioux Nation argue in the United States Court claims the Act of 1877 was unconstitutional because it violated the treaty of Laramie, and the 5th Amendment because the compensation that the Sioux nation received were unjust. The claimed was dismissed in the United Stated court of claims because the court claimed that it did not have subject matter jurisdiction under the 1920 ACT to asses if the compensation given to the Sioux Nation for the Black hills was adequate.

The birth of the Bureau of Indian Affairs signaled the beginning of a series of extermination and assimilation policies directed towards the native tribal nations, leaving a devastating impact on the Native American legacy. In an official apology on behalf of the BIA given at its 175th anniversary, Kevin Gover stated that “from the very beginning, the Office of Indian Affairs was an instrument by which the United States enforced its ambition against the Indian nations.” The interest of the Indian people was never the goal of the agency despite its title, and the real purpose of its foundation had always been the removal of Indian problems by forced policies. John Collier, the Commissioner of Indian affairs appointed By FDR, aimed to improve

In a 1944 case between Korematsu and the United States during World War II, a presidential executive order gave the military authority to exclude citizens of Japanese descent from areas deemed critical to national defense and potentially vulnerable to espionage. Along with this they also arrested Japanese Americans and forced them into internment camps. Korematsu however, a US citizen from ancestry descent, refused to leave his home in San Leandro, California. Korematsu appealed, and in 1944 the case reached the Supreme Court.
