“The natural progress of things is for liberty to yield, and government to gain ground.”

I'm sure the cartoonist thought this was a cute way to take a poke at Pr. Trump and the travel ban.
If the tribes had met the first Europeans with force and turned them away before they got a foothold on the east coast of the continent, they would not have been overrun, decimated, had the land taken and their way of life destroyed. By the time the tribes recognized the full nature of the threat and the reality of what was happening, it was too late for them to effectively defend themselves.
There's a lesson in that somewhere. We should learn it.
