MAHWAH, NJ — Mahwah violated the constitutional rights of the Ramapough Mountain Indians by interfering with their assembly on the tribe's Sweet Water prayer site, the U.S. Department of Justice said Monday.

In a statement filed on Monday, federal officials said the township of violated the tribe's rights under the federal Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Person's Act of 2000.

The law "protects the rights of all religious communities to worship on their land free from discriminatory barriers and unlawful burdens," New Jersey U.S. Attorney Craig Carpenito said. "Our office will continue to vigorously enforce the rights guaranteed by RLUIPA and take steps to ensure that it is applied correctly in our District."
