ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Rep. Chris Jacobs (R, NY-27) and other members of the house are asking Attorney General Merrick Garland to investigate the governor's group home policy. 

They sent a letter to Garland Wednesday taking issue with the directive sending COVID-19 positive patients back into group homes for people with developmental disabilities.

Through this investigation, they'd like the Attorney General to assess whether or not it's a civil rights issue.
