OUTRAGE OF THE DAY: SELLING TRIBAL MEMBERSHIPS IN EXCHANGE FOR US CITIZENSHIP

Rate this Entry

I heard about this scheme a few days ago. A couple of representatives of an Indian tribe not recognized by the federal government offered to sell memberships to the tribe as an avenue for people to get US citizenship. While this might be a creative idea, it doesn't work since the tribe is not a federally recognized one. And this means the scheme is really a matter of fraud. The Texas Attorney General apparently thinks so and today charged the folks behind the offer. While this is one of the more unusual offers to get people get around the usual rules to qualify for residency, it is just another scam. And it is a reminder that offers that are too good to be true almost always are.

    Isn't "the outrage of the day" Michael Reagan's talk radio schtick?
    I posted on this today, but I am please to see you horrified by it as well.
