Robert Morgenthau says it is wrong to require states to abide by the misguided “Secure Communities” law.
Robert M. Morgenthau was the Manhattan District Attorney from 1975 until 2009. In his nine terms in office, his staff conducted about 3.5 million criminal prosecutions. He is currently of counsel with the law firm Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz.
The states’-rights issue in immigration policy is whether local governments can protect residents from overreaching feds, writes Robert Morgenthau.
