Lt. Gov Wrigley Says DAPL Camp is a Humanitarian Crisis
North Dakota’s Lt. Governor is criticizing the federal government’s handling of the Dakota Access Pipeline.
Drew Wrigley says it’s done nothing to convince protesters to leave the camp south of Mandan, which grew to about 7,000 people over the weekend.
He says the Obama administration, through the Army Corps directing their action and inaction, has protracted the matter quite dramatically.
Wrigley says the state is willing to help evacuate the camp, which has been hit by two winter storms.
He calls it a humanitarian crisis.
