President Trump, flanked by Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross (left), and Energy Secretary Rick Perry (right), in March 2017, announcing the approval of a permit to build the Keystone XL pipeline. On Monday two Native American tribes filed a lawsuit seeking a judge to rescind the permit for the $8 billion project.

The Fort Belknap Indian Community and the Rosebud Sioux Tribe contend there was no effort to study how the 1,200-mile pipeline project will affect their water systems and sacred lands.
