Attorney General Lynn Fitch made remarks Thursday at the 2021 Neshoba County Fair.
Attorney General Fitch began her remarks by thanking Mississippi residents for allowing her to be the state attorney general.
He said his office has been working closely with his associations at the local, state and federal levels. She said those partnerships have allowed the Attorney General’s office to continue to support Mississippi law enforcement.
One of Fitch’s primary goals in office is to end human trafficking, fight the opioid crisis, protect Second Amendment rights, and prosecute fraud against “bad actors” entering Mississippi.
Above all, however, he said the Attorney General’s office is dedicated to upholding the laws of the Mississippi Constitution.
“It’s about meeting the needs of the state and your AG office has been doing just that,” Fitch said.
Fitch said his office is actively going after big tech companies. He said he is fighting hard for the privacy of Mississippi residents and protecting their information from those companies.
Currently, Fitch’s office is advancing a large case within the US Supreme Court. They will hear arguments in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which focuses on the 2018 Mississippi law banning abortion for 15 weeks.
“It’s about how we protect the unborn. How we protect women, mothers. How we protect the integrity of the medical profession, ”Fitch said.
A decision regarding this case is expected to be made in the summer of 2022.
Fitch’s office also recently partnered with DPS and truckers across Mississippi to launch an anti-human trafficking campaign. The campaign features awareness information from across the state to help pinpoint signs of trafficking and what to do if you encounter a person who may be a victim of trafficking.
“You are all part of the vision and I need you to continue to be part of the vision. These are just a few issues, but we can change them and we can do it together, ”Fitch said.
