President Donald Trump makes remarks while signing an executive order, establishing the Task Force on Missing and Murdered American Indians and Alaska Natives, at the White House in Washington on Tuesday, Nov. 26, 2019.

Tribal leaders from Minnesota and several other states joined President Donald Trump on Tuesday for the launch of a federal initiative to address the crisis of missing and murdered Native American women whose cases have lingered unresolved or fallen through cracks in the legal system.

The new Operation Lady Justice Task Force gets underway as states across the country are forming similar groups to address the long-standing problem. Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz signed off this year on a state-level task force to tackle the situation.
