He was never called to do anything- the matter never became something that he was called to act on as president. He may have made some of the cuff, unofficial remarks to the effect that he would not enforce Marshall's rulings, but the matter never came up. Jackson always had a lot of political sense - he knew when he had to be careful to avoid setting something off.

President Jackson and Congress opposed the Court's developing support of Native American rights; however, the Cherokee weren't removed from their ancestral land during Jackson's administration, but six years after the Worcester decision, under the Van Buren administration.

According to popular myth, Jackson was supposed to have said, "John Marshall has made his decision, now let him enforce it!" In Paul Boller's book, They Never Said It: A Book of False Quotes, Misquotes, & False Attributions, historian Robert V. Remini claims Jackson never made such a statement. The tale is based on something Jackson wrote in a letter to John Coffee, "...the decision of the Supreme Court has fell still born, and they find that they cannot coerce Georgia to yield to its mandate,"meaning the Court's opinion was moot because it had no power to enforce its edict (not being a legislative body).

Under pressure from President Jackson, Georgia obeyed the Supreme Court's order to release from jail missionaries who had lived on Cherokee land without buying a required state permit. Marshall's comments about the federal government owing the Cherokee protection were not part of the ruling, but a matter of opinion, because the United States government was not party to the case and not obligated to accommodate the Chief Justice (Marshall often communicated ancillary beliefs through Supreme Court opinions).

In 1838, the federal government demonstrated its contempt for the rights of Native Americans by negotiating an illegal treaty with a small faction of the Cherokee Nation. The Cherokee group lacked authority to agree to the Treaty of New Echota because they weren't part of the Nation's official government. Although the United States was aware of this fact, they seized the Native American land anyway and displaced its inhabitants in the "Trail of Tears" tragedy.
