Gambling regulators to visit Soboba Casino next week

 Federal gambling regulators will inspect the Soboba Casino in California next week, following growing tensions between the local police and the tribe. Representatives of the National Indian Gaming Commission will meet with casino officials next week, Robert Salgado, chairman of the Soboba Band of Luiseño Indians, confirmed. According to Salgado, the gambling regulators are visiting on a request he made earlier this summer in the wake of the shootings of three tribal members by the local police. Earlier this month Riverside County Sheriff Stanley Sniff asked the federal government to shut down the casino, claiming that gamblers, employees and tribal members are in danger because of the tribe's policy. The National Indian Gaming Commission is the governing body which has the power to shut down the casino, if needed.
