Statement By Attorney General Andrew M. Cuomo
"Governor Spitzer today did the right thing by listening to the public’s concerns and setting aside an issue that had become increasingly divisive. New York has many pressing issues that the Governor intends to address and which require his focus. As the Governor noted today, immigration reform is the responsibility of the federal government, which has failed to enact comprehensive immigration legislation. I look forward to working with the Governor to bring about the kinds of reforms that help all New Yorkers."
