Loretta Lynch… Justice
After a long delay, Loretta Lynch was confirmed Thursday, April 23, as the first African-American woman to serve as U.S. Attorney General.
A Harvard Law graduate, Loretta first joined the U.S. Attorney’s Office in 1990. The Guardian newspaper’s recent article, “‘Solely about justice’: Loretta Lynch becomes enforcer in fight for equality” provides background information on our new U.S. Attorney General. Among the issues she will tackle are cyber crimes, immigration, human trafficking, voter registration and civil rights issues, to name a few.
Immigration was one of the topics Loretta was grilled on during the confirmation hearing in January, specifically, Republican Congressman Jeff Sessions asked her if President Obama’s executive action on immigration was legal and constitutional. Loretta responded “As I’ve read the opinion, I do believe it is.”
A smart, confident, and hard working woman who takes pride in her job and gets it done, Loretta’s record speaks for itself. May Ms. Lynch continue to work for justice and equality for all.
