Raul Torrez, who took office on January 1, 2023 as our Attorney General, is changing the Office in ways that seem to embody a different philosophy. The examples are many: cooperate rather than fight plaintiffs in the Yazzie education lawsuit, criminal charges against police officers, and starting a new Civil Rights Division. AG Torrez is undertaking these and other ambitious goals while of course still performing all of the traditional duties of his Office.
On today’s show, Mexico People Places and Ideas’ host Stephen Spitz is joined by Attorney General Torrez to discuss this seeming break from the past, and what principles will guide his actions.
