A labor-rights group whose investigators have been detained by Chinese authorities is appealing to Ivanka Trump to help secure their release after the men probed factories that supplied shoes for her brand.

In a four-page letter sent Tuesday to the first daughter at the White House, where she is an adviser to President Donald Trump, China Labor Watch said the three undercover activists were targeted because they were investigating a supplier connected to the Ivanka Trump brand.
