Reservation repos MUST be conducted by tribal law. VOLUNTARY repo or REPLEVIN only.

& Indian Land can be protected, therefore no one is allowed in it with out the Chief's permission. Even the government has difficulties getting in legally, therefore governments typically take no action.

If you watch Operation Repo, it was 100% fake.
