The state cannot prosecute Native defendants for crimes on Native land.

The Supreme Court, in a 5-4 ruling on Thursday, held that nearly half of Oklahoma – home to 1.8 million residents – is Native American territory, saying any Native American resident on Native American land cannot be tried in state criminal court, and instead must be tried in federal court.

“Today we are asked whether the land these treaties promised remains an Indian reservation for purposes of federal criminal law,” Justice Neil Gorsuch wrote in the majority opinion.

“Because Congress has not said otherwise, we hold the government to its word,” he wrote.

Gorsuch was joined by the four liberal justices in a ruling that is one of the largest legal victories for tribes in decades.

Supreme Court Just Gave Back Half Of Oklahoma To Native Americans, Leftist Judges Uphold 1866 Treaty. Under the ruling the state of Oklahoma has no right to prosecute you for crimes.

In a 5-4 decision leftist members of the court and Neil Gorsuch upheld a treaty dating back to 1866 in order to restore Native American jurisdiction over eastern Oklahoma, home to nearly 2 million American citizens.

This would put Tulsa on a Native American reservation and outside of state jurisdiction. If this doesn't ignite people to get vote Republican this November nothing will.

In the event Trump loses to Joe Biden and he appoints more leftist judges expect precedent to be set giving up more territory to the Native Americans.
