Ivanka Trump to make stops in Duluth, Bloomington on Monday

Her trip includes a visit to a local manufacturing plant.
Publish date:

A member of the Trump family, along with a congressman and the U.S. secretary of the Interior, will be swinging through Minnesota this week.

Ivanka Trump, advisor to President Donald Trump, will make stops in both Duluth and Bloomington on Monday.

In Duluth, she'll be joined by Secretary David Bernhardt and Rep. Pete Stauber (R) at a local manufacturer in support of Pledge to America’s Workers, an initiative calling on American employers to help create millions of jobs through training and hiring programs.

Her trip to Bloomington, meanwhile, is in support of a much different initiative: seeking justice for Native American victims of violent crime.

Trump and Stauber will be on hand to celebrate the opening of the country's first Missing and Murdered Native American Cold Case Office.

The office is a major step towards addressing what has been described as a crisis among the country's Native communities: the disproportionate amount of violence being experienced by indigenous Americans, especially women. 

According to federal data, Native American women in some areas are "more than 10 times more likely than the rest of the population to be murdered," per CNN. 

The cold case office in Bloomington is one of several moves the federal government has made to tackle the problem. There has been bipartisan legislation, and earlier this year, President Trump proclaimed May 5, 2020, Missing and Murdered American Indians and Alaska Natives Awareness Day.

This came several months after he signed an executive order launching Operation Lady Justice, which set up an interagency task force as part of "an aggressive government-wide strategy for ending the cycle of violence and providing grants to improve public safety in American Indian and Alaska Native communities."

At the cold case office Monday, Ivanka Trump and Secretary Bernhardt will be joined by Red Lake Nation chairman Darrell Seki, Sr, and Tara Sweeney, Assistant Secretary for Indian Affairs, per KSTP.
