Thank you for your remarks and your steadfast leadership, Secretary [Sally] Jewell.  It is an honor to be here with you and with so many senior leaders from Mexico and Canada – including my counterparts, Attorney General [Arely] Gómez González and Minister of Justice [Jody] Wilson-Raybould.  I understand that we have had a remarkable day of discussions and I want to congratulate the delegations from Canada, Mexico and the United States on a successful launch of the North American Working Group on Violence Against Indigenous Women and Girls.  Through this meeting, we reaffirm our shared commitment to preventing the unacceptable violence against indigenous North American women and girls.  Our promise to indigenous Americans is that we will unwaveringly secure the rights and benefits to which they are all entitled.  And there is much we must do to guarantee indigenous women and girls the protection and safety they deserve.
