In an already tense stand off, a federal judge has denied the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe their request for a temporary restraining order to stop the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline, as reported by CNN. The judge reached this decision after claiming the tribe failed to prove that they would quote suffer injury that would be prevented by any injunction the court could issue. The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe is fighting to prevent the destruction of sacred sites due to the construction of the pipeline which means to run from North Dakota to Illinois through 2 other states. The project is set to cost 3.7 billion dollars and would carry nearly half a million barrels of crude oil a day. Thousands of people from over 200 Native American tribes are in support of the Standing Rock Sioux’s work to preserve their history while around 30 environmental groups have been outspoken with their opposition to the pipeline which draws concerns over environmental disasters especially around the Missouri River.
