Law enforcement has no plans to "forcibly remove" protesters who've set up camp to demonstrate against the Dakota Access pipeline.
FOX's Jessica Rosenthal reports some protesters say they will not leave despite an order from the governor to evacuate:
The U.S. Army Corp of Engineers say they're closing the area where the protesters have gathered and the state's governor has issued an executive order including a mandatory evacuation of the area.
Highway patrol lieutenant Tom Iverson says they won't forcibly remove protesters, but they can't allow people through who will try to help the protesters remain at the camp through the harsh winter:
(Iverson) "It does create some interesting concerns when people do bring in propane and building materials directly in violation of this executive order so it would be our authority and obligation to stop that."
Though he says they haven't stopped any supplies as of yet, and a Morton County sheriffs spokeswoman says they are not implementing checkpoints of any kind. Some of the protesters have said they have no plans to leave.
