AG Paxton Unveils New Training Video to Mobilize Texans in the Fight Against Human Trafficking
“This remarkable training video represents my deep conviction to inform, educate and empower Texans to prevent, recognize and report human trafficking,” Attorney General Paxton said. “‘Be the One in the Fight Against Human Trafficking’ was created to enlist citizens from every walk of life to help Texas in its nationwide leadership role to combat and ultimately eliminate this horrific and dehumanizing crime.”

AG Paxton Leads 22-State Coalition in Filing Brief with U.S. Supreme Court to Protect the Unborn and Uphold Free Speech Rights
“Forcing pro-life organizations to promote a state-sponsored advertisement for the abortion industry is not the tool of a free government,” Attorney General Paxton said. “California’s unlawful Reproductive FACT Act tramples on the constitutionally protected rights of free speech and free religious expression. The Supreme Court should rule against the law to prevent other states from passing similar legislation intended to turn pro-life pregnancy centers into referral agencies for abortions.”

AG Paxton Leads 11-State Coalition in Brief to Defend Life and Federal Immigration Laws
“An unlawfully-present alien with no substantial ties to this country has no constitutional right to abortion on demand,” Attorney General Paxton said. “If ‘Moe’ prevails in this case, it will contradict U.S. Supreme Court precedent and create a right to abortion for anyone who enters the U.S. illegally, no matter how briefly. Texas has a legitimate and substantial interest in preserving and promoting fetal life. Texas must not become a sanctuary state for abortions.”

AG Paxton: SCOTUS Agrees to Review Texas’ Redistricting Case
“We are eager for the chance to present our case before the U.S. Supreme Court, which ordered the district court in San Antonio to draw lawful congressional and House maps in 2012 that the Legislature adopted in 2013 and used in the last three elections,” Attorney General Paxton said. “The lower court’s decisions to invalidate parts of the maps it drew and adopted is inexplicable and indefensible.”
