SEC. 2. FINDINGS AND PURPOSES.

    (a) Findings.--Congress finds that--
            (1) there is a government-to-government relationship 
        between the United States and each Indian tribal government;
            (2) through statutes and treaties, Congress has recognized 
        the inherent sovereignty of Indian tribal governments and the 
        rights of Native people to self-determination and self-
        governance;
            (3) each Indian tribal government possesses the inherent 
        sovereign authority--
                    (A)(i) to establish its own form of government;
                    (ii) to adopt a constitution or other organic 
                governing documents; and
                    (iii) to establish a tribal judicial system; and
                    (B) to provide for the health and safety of those 
                who reside on tribal lands, including the provision of 
                law enforcement services on lands under the 
                jurisdiction of the tribal government;
            (4) tribal emergency response providers, such as tribal 
        emergency public safety officers, law enforcement officers, 
        emergency response personnel, emergency medical personnel and 
        facilities (including tribal and Indian Health Service 
        emergency facilities), and related personnel, agencies, and 
        authorities--
                    (A) play a crucial role in providing for the health 
                and safety of those who reside on tribal lands; and
                    (B) are necessary components of a comprehensive 
                system to secure the homeland of the United States;
            (5) there are more than 25 Indian tribes that have primary 
        jurisdiction over--
                    (A) lands within the United States that are 
                adjacent to the Canadian or Mexican border; or
                    (B) waters of the United States that provide direct 
                access by boat to lands within the United States;
            (6) the border lands under the jurisdiction of Indian 
        tribal governments comprise more than 260 miles of the 
        approximately 7,400 miles of international border of the United 
        States;
            (7) numerous Indian tribal governments exercise criminal, 
        civil, and regulatory jurisdiction over lands on which dams, 
        oil and gas deposits, nuclear or electrical power plants, water 
        and sanitation systems, or timber or other natural resources 
        are located; and
            (8) the involvement of tribal governments in the protection 
        of the homeland of the United States is essential to the 
        comprehensive maintenance of the homeland security of the 
        United States.
    (b) Purposes.--The purposes of this Act are to ensure that--
            (1) the Department of Homeland Security consults with,
