South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem was banned from the Pine Ridge Reservation after speaking about wanting to bolster the U.S.-Mexico border by sending razor wire and security personnel to Texas, adding that cartels are infiltrating the state’s reservations.

Tribe President Frank Star Comes Out issued a statement on social media on Friday regarding Noem’s comments.

“Due to the safety of the Oyate, effective immediately, you are hereby Banished from the homelands of the Oglala Sioux Tribe,” Star Comes Out said in a Friday statement addressed to Noem. “Oyate” is a word for people or nation.

In a four-page letter shared on Facebook, Star Comes Out accused the South Dakota governor of using the issue at the border to get former President Trump reelected while boosting her chance of becoming his choice for vice president.
