Law Enforcement Again Asking President Obama to Remember Oath of Office and Help with DAPL Protests
A dozen law enforcement officials in North Dakota are pleading with President Obama to send federal officers to help control the Dakota Access pipeline protests.
In a just released letter, the officers ask the president to send 100 Border Patrol agents and members of the U.S. Marshals Service Special Operations Group.
They say it would defray the costs and help relieve fatigue among state and local officers.
Nearly 575 protesters have been arrested since August.
The pipeline is stalled while Energy Transfer Partners and the U.S. Army Corps battle in court over permission to cross under the Missouri River.
