LAC DU FLAMBEAU, Wis. (WXPR) -- Twenty-eight people have been told by Lac du Flambeau government and tribal 

police that they have 48 hours to leave the reservation. None of the 28 persons who were notified are tribal members.

Tribal spokesperson Brandon Thoms (tomes) says this is part of an on­going crackdown on illegal activity on the reservation.  The action is the second by the tribe within a year. Last August they removed 53 non­tribal members from tribal lands. The tribe declared a State of Emergency in March, 2013 in response to surge in criminal activity.

The tribal council resolution prevents those excluded from entering the reservation for five years, with criminal penalties if they do so.
