AG Marshall urges support for pro life Amendment 2

(Marshall Campaign)

On November 6th, you will have the opportunity to vote on an important amendment to Alabama’s constitution. Amendment 2, if adopted, sends a strong message that Alabamians support the sanctity of life and the rights of the unborn. The amendment also makes clear that there is no state constitutional right to an abortion, nor any requirement that state funding be used to provide the service.

As your Attorney General, one of the most important roles I have is defending the sanctity of life in Alabama. I consider it a great privilege to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves and that’s why I’m urging you to vote in support of this amendment to protect the unborn.

73

Groups like Planned Parenthood have spent over a million dollars in Alabama trying to influence the election and defeat this amendment. These groups do not speak for us and they certainly do not share our values. Let’s make our voices heard on the right to life. After all, it is the right that every other right depends on.

AG Steve Marshall champions religious liberty

Attorney General Marshall pictured with Jack Phillips, owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop in Lakewood, CO

One of the most notable accomplishments in Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall’s time in office has been his fierce protection of religious liberty.

Attorney General Marshall has had a hand in a number of historic religious liberty cases with national implications. Jack Phillips, owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop in Lakewood, CO, refused to make a custom cake for a same-sex wedding due to his Christian beliefs. A lawsuit ensued and the Colorado Civil Rights Commission ruled that Phillips had unlawfully discriminated against the same-sex customers, even though he’d offered to sell them any cake in the shop and referred them to other nearby bakers who could make the custom cake. Phillips took the case all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court which reversed the lower court’s decision, citing “hostility” towards Phillips’ religion.

311

Attorney General Marshall praised the decision and was vocal in his support for Phillips’s 1st Amendment rights, along with 19 other states:

“This Supreme Court decision should send a strong message to activist courts and bureaucrats alike that Americans’ right to religious expression cannot be trampled and the Constitution cannot be ignored.”

In 2015, the U.S. Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that North Carolina legislators were in violation of the First Amendment by their practice of having county commissioners begin their meetings with prayer. Attorney General Marshall joined an amicus brief with 21 other states urging the U.S. Supreme Court to hear the case and uphold the constitutionality of legislator-led prayer:

“Lawmaker-led prayer is woven into the fabric of American society dating back to the founding of our Republic….Public prayer is both constitutional and a common practice throughout our country.”

Attorney General Marshall also lead a 13-state amicus brief to the U.S. Supreme Court in support of the City of Pensacola and its right to publicly display a historic cross in a downtown park. A group of individuals had previously sued the city claiming the cross was offensive.

“For 77 years, the cross has served as a backdrop for community events and memorial services honoring veterans. Given the history and significance of this beloved local landmark, it defies reason that Pensacolans should be forced to remove it because its presence is now perceived to conflict with the Constitution’s prohibition of the establishment of religion,” said Attorney General Marshall.

Through these examples and countless others, Attorney General Marshall has shown that he is willing to be a strong advocate for the protection of religious liberty. If elected to another term on November 6th, there is no doubt that this issue will continue to be at the forefront of his time in public office.

AG Marshall on the front lines of battling Alabama’s opioid crisis

(Marshall Campaign)

Just last month, Attorney General Steve Marshall attended the opening of a treatment center in Mobile aimed at combating the growing opioid epidemic in our state. Marshall gave remarks at the opening of the new Pathway Healthcare location, stressing the importance of acting now to put an end to the crippling effects of addiction in Alabama.

“Some of you are aware of the personal story of my life. Having seen what addiction can do to families, this is a personal issue for me going forward and will continue to be a personal issue for me as attorney general.”

177

The opioid epidemic is one of Marshall’s key issues that he intends to continue working on while in office. The new treatment center provides resources that redirects focus to the root of the addiction. As the co-chair of Governor Ivey’s Opioid Overdose & Addiction Council, Marshall has bridged communication between all sectors of law enforcement and developed recommendations to combat the epidemic after six months of extensive research. He mentioned the state has begun to implement an action plan to fight opioid addiction.

“Badges and guns matter in this issue. But for us to make tremendous strides going forward, we’ve got to deal with those individuals right now who are suffering from these addictions to be able to get help.”

Marshall has remained focused on ensuring state and local law enforcement have the resources they need to effectively deal with those trafficking drugs while in office and plans to continue working with community members, activists and the church to identify how to most effectively treat the problem.

Steve Marshall partners with White House to recognize ICE & border patrol agents

(Marshall Campaign)

While ICE & CBP agents are defending themselves against partisan political rhetoric from the left, Attorney General Steve Marshall is working to highlight the important role they play in defending the rule of law and thus, securing our borders.

Last month, Marshall accepted an invitation to speak on a select White House Panel discussion on border security and how border crime and illegal immigration affect the citizens of Alabama.

216

“Due to our state’s proximity to Atlanta, a major distribution point for drugs, and to Texas, a border state, Alabama has become a prime transit point for drug trafficking. We see marijuana, cocaine, meth, and now illicit fentanyl coming into our state as a result. The drug trade brings dangerous and violent illegal aliens into Alabama.

Just this summer, our state was rocked by the brutal murder of a special needs 13-year-old girl— killed by affiliates of the Mexican drug cartel. I am grateful to the president and the White House for allowing me to share the observations of Alabama law enforcement and our citizens.”

Marshall praised the White House and President Trump for acknowledging these agents and their contributions and dedication to the safety of U.S. citizens. He knows the importance of respecting our law enforcement, border security, and the law itself and is committed to working with all sectors of government to ensure our citizens are protected.

“We must secure our borders and we must restore respect for the rule of law throughout this country. The men and women of ICE and CBP are critical to securing our borders, and Attorneys General—I believe—must play a major role in restoring the rule of law.”

More than abortion at stake with Kavanaugh pick

(Steve Marshall Campaign)

Alabamians have every reason to take interest in the makeup of the United States Supreme Court and the president’s recent nomination of Brett Kavanaugh. Much has been written about what Kavanaugh’s ascendency to the high court could mean for the future of religious liberty, abortion, and Second Amendment cases.

Less talked about is what Judge Kavanaugh’s addition to the Court could mean for the kind of pervasive federal overreach that the U.S. Supreme Court gave its blessing to over 30 years ago. This is a timely question given that, only weeks ago, Justice Kennedy–Kavanaugh’s former boss and the justice he would replace–used one of his last opinions to tell the Court to take another look at that decision.

Put simply, the Supreme Court’s 1984 opinion in Chevron v. National Resources Defense Council gave federal agencies the power to do what the agency believes the law requires, instead of what a court believes the law requires. The end result? Courts lost the power to hold agencies accountable when they don’t follow the text of the laws passed by Congress.

Unelected federal employees running mega-bureaucracies in Washington, in many ways, began running the country — unaccountable at the ballot box and operating at a laughable distance beyond the “few and defined” powers the federal government is given in the U.S. Constitution.

Judge Kavanaugh knows more than most about our country’s boundless “administrative state.” He is a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit–the court that hears many cases and controversies arising out of federal agency decisions. [One of Alabama’s own, Janice Rogers Brown, sat on the powerful court until she retired last year, writing a number of significant opinions in favor of liberty, against an overreaching federal government.]

Given this experience, Judge Kavanaugh is especially qualified to scrutinize the unconstitutional actions of federal agencies. He may also play a role in the Court’s shifting away from its opinion in Chevron.

What would the Court’s departure from Chevron mean for Alabama? Plenty. As I think about the cases my office has been involved in at the U.S. Supreme Court during my tenure, many of them have been about federal agencies run amok. We’ve fought the erosion of property rights, threats to economic liberty, and expensive energy mandates–all because of overreach by federal agencies. As a result, just last week, I joined a powerful brief to the Court asking it to reconsider Chevron and fix the root cause of these problems.

This should be a bipartisan issue. No matter who you support for president or Congress, we can all agree that courts should make bureaucrats in D.C. follow the law–not empower them to be a law unto themselves. And Alabamians of all political persuasions have much to gain from halting the invasion of federal agencies into every aspect of our lives.

Adding a judge like Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court could be the catalyst for this rightful reversal of course. He has demonstrated time and again his commitment to the Constitution–including the separation of powers between the three branches of the federal government, the balance of power between the federal government and the states, and the inalienable rights of the American people.

Legal scholars from the left and the right agree that Judge Kavanaugh’s qualifications are impeccable. Having him on the bench would be a significant step toward restoring the kind of restrained, limited government that the Founders envisioned. The U.S. Senate should swiftly confirm Judge Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court.

More than abortion at stake with Kavanaugh pick

Alabamians have every reason to take interest in the makeup of the United States Supreme Court and the president’s recent nomination of Brett Kavanaugh. Much has been written about what Kavanaugh’s ascendency to the high court could mean for the future of religious liberty, abortion, and Second Amendment cases.

Fighting violent crime is a hallmark issue for Attorney General Steve Marshall

(Marshall Campaign)

Steve Marshall remains unwavering in fighting violent crime and safeguarding the people of Alabama. Last year, Marshall launched the “Initiative on Violent Crime” from the Attorney General’s Office, which focuses on reclaiming, restoring and reviving Alabama communities.

“I am determined to reclaim our neighborhoods from the scourge of violent crime, restore the rule of law, and ultimately, see these communities revived. We are accomplishing these goals through targeting our worst-hit areas, establishing strategic partnerships with federal, state, and local law enforcement, renewing investments in crime-fighting resources and increasing training opportunities for those on the front lines.”

“We are also listening to the needs of victims of violent crime. As a result, we advocated for and secured the historic passage of the Fair Justice Act to ensure that capital murderers are limited in their ability to file endless frivolous appeals that cause families to relive their horror again and again, while losing faith in the justice system.”

139

Over the past twelve months, violent crime has dropped by 15% in Montgomery alone. Marshall’s proven commitment to fight violent crime has the potential to positively impact the lives of Alabamians for generations to come. As Marshall said after 11 violent offenders were captured with the assistance of his office, “criminals should be on notice—we will not tolerate this menace to our citizens.”

Steve Marshall is a voice for the most vulnerable, standing up for the rights and protection of victims. He is tough on crime and works diligently every day to see that justice is served in our state. He is committed to standing up for what is right and will always put the well being of Alabama first. With Steve Marshall in office, Alabama is safer.
