Soboba Indian tribe proposal to annex 500 acres for new casino-hotel has some San Jacinto residents worried


The Soboba Indian tribe's proposal to annex more than 500 acres and build a new casino-hotel near their existing gambling complex has some San Jacinto residents worried their neighborhoods could be swallowed into a zone devoid of public services. And recent shootouts between local sheriff's deputies and alleged criminals hiding on the Soboba reservation have apparently given residents concern. At one point last year, a union representing Riverside County sheriff's deputies declared the reservation and its existing casino unsafe.
