A reader in Illinois writes:
I am one of 16 cousins who were disenrolled this week from the Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians, without cause, due process or explanation of any kind. Over 154 members were banished this week. We had our homes, health care, income and rights taken away with the signing of pen. What we have discovered is pointing to corruption, greed and scandal. ... The Bureau of Indian Affairs has turned their backs and the tribe says it's a sovereign nation and that they can basically accept who they want and disenroll who they want without due process or a fair trial.
