Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Fallbrook) launched a invoice to put 172 acres of land in East San Diego County into tribal belief for the Jamul Indian Village on Friday.

“The Jamul Indian Village has looked for years to maneuver tribal members onto reservation land to allow them to increase their households and protect their native tradition and historical past,” Issa stated. “This Charge-to-Belief invoice would grant this historic tribe a possibility to just do that.”

The 172 acres is at the moment owned by the Jamul Indian Village, which incorporates residential land for properties and council buildings, an ancestral cemetery, and the tribe’s solely street for transportation.

“By putting Jamul’s land into belief, this invoice safeguards the reservation, its sacred websites, and Kumeyaay traditions for generations to come back,” Issa stated.
