Harold Frazier, the chairman of the Cheye River Reservation, blasted TC Energy — the company formerly known as TransCanada — in a statement.

“Any vehicles or personnel working on the Keystone XL pipeline are not welcome on this reservation,” Frazier said.

“Unlike the United States we welcome free speech and concerned citizens standing up for the law. This is Sioux Territory, we will not stand for more encroachments and defilement of our land,” he promised.

“I would like to thank the tribal members who brought this to our attention and stand with them in our opposition to the KXL pipeline,” Frazier added.

Writing on Twitter, Dr. Pritesh Gandhi argued that American schools are in no condition to reopen at the moment, especially given that the disease is still infecting tens of thousands of people every day.

"America is out of its mind thinking we are even remotely prepared for school this fall," wrote Gandhi, who earlier this year made an unsuccessful run for the Democratic nomination for the House of Representatives in Texas's 10th Congressional District.

Sen. John Thune (R-SD), who is the Senate Republican whip, was asked about the idea later on Wednesday.

"Well, I don't. Is that even legal?" Thune replied. "I assume that's not something that you could do."
