(Washington, D.C.) -- Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar wants to create a federal office for missing and murdered Black women and girls.
The Democratic lawmaker says there needs to be an urgent and delicate response when families and loved ones call about their missing relative.
Omar's proposed bill has early support from U.S. Representatives Betty McCollum, Angie Craig, and Dean Phillips.
The legislation is expected to have a tough time passing in the GOP-controlled U.S. House.
