President Biden to nominate Suffolk DA Rachael Rollins as US Attorney for Massachusetts, making her the first Black woman to hold the role in the state if confirmed https://t.co/oBGh8RitRk

Congratulations to @DARollins, an outstanding choice for US Attorney. She‘s been a leader on criminal justice reform, ending mass incarceration and racial disparities, and been generous in providing me advice and guidance. Let’s push for a swift confirmation. #JusticeCantWait https://t.co/4CtHkkCbzX

In the absence of comprehensive gun reform, seamless coordination between federal, state and local law enforcement will be necessary to help stem the flow of guns into Manhattan. This is good news from Merrick Garland’s DOJ.
