Rep. Deb Haaland got emotional while questioning a witness at a hearing on missing and murdered indigenous women Thursday. Choking back tears, Haaland asked North Dakota state Rep. Ruth Buffalo about a garment she presented during her testimony that was handmade to represent members of indigenous groups who were missing or murdered. “The silent crisis of missing and murdered indigenous women has been my top priority since long before being sworn in to Congress,” Haaland said.
