"Biden Faces Calls To Shut Down Dakota Access Pipeline"

"President Biden is facing calls to shut down the Dakota Access pipeline after a court ruled that the Trump administration broke the law when allowing for the pipeline’s construction.

In recent days, progressive lawmakers, celebrities and indigenous leaders have asked the president to stop the operation ahead of a hearing on the court’s decision.

On Friday, Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.) and Reps. Nanette Diaz Barragán (D-Calif.), Raúl Grijalva (D-Ariz.) and Raul Ruiz (D-Calif.) wrote a letter to Biden asking him to shut down the pipeline project and meet with members of impacted indigenous tribes, including the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe.
