Trump approves aid for Amber Alerts in tribal areas pushed by John McCain, Andy Biggs

 

April 16, 2018



Tribal areas are permanently eligible for assistance using the emergency Amber Alert system under a new law pushed by Arizona's Sen. John McCain and Rep. Andy Biggs.

President Donald Trump signed legislation that makes permanent a federal program to help tribal areas implement the child-abduction system. It came about after the 2016 slaying of Ashlynne Mike, an 11-year-old Navajo girl. Authorities waited a day after her family reported her missing to post alerts about her disappearance.
