Every human being born upon our continent, or who comes here from any quarter
of the world, whether savage or civilized, can go to our courts for protection-except
those who belong to the tribes who once owned this country. The cannibal from the
islands of the Pacific, the worst criminals from Europe, Asia, or Africa, can appeal
to the law and courts for their rights of person and property-all, save our native
Indians, who, above all, should be protected from wrong"
