Staten Island Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis spoke out against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s bail reform legislation during an appearance on 77 WABC Wednesday.
Malliotakis appeared on Bernie and Sid in the Morning, hosted by Sid Rosenburg and Bernard McGuirk.
“There has been a culmination of activity at the State Capitol and at City Hall, our mayor and our governor have signed into law policies that decriminalize crime, that ties the hands of our police, and that take away qualified immunity,” said Malliotakis. “Criminals are released back onto the streets, thanks to the Democrats in Albany.”
Earlier this month, Malliotakis demanded President Biden and Attorney General Merrick Garland send federal authorities to New York City to combat the alarming surge in crime.
“New York City is less safe because of the laws in place,” she said. “Unless we get people to vote those people in power out, we are going to continue to go down this path.”
Rosenburg suggested that what we are witnessing in the Big Apple is lawlessness. He said police have no power to put hardened criminals behind bars.
“It’s all part of the George Floyd legacy and Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA,” said Rosenburg “They just brazenly went out and rioted and they were not prosecuted in this city. They were given desk appearance tickets and the charges were dropped.”
Malliotakis said if New York City continues down the path of high crime and laws to prevent prosecutors from doing their jobs, more people will move out of the city.

Tomi Lahren: Liz Cheney Should ‘Join The View or Some Other Liberal Network’
“Or better yet, maybe join the ladies of The View or host your own show on one of the many liberal networks. Either way, stay away from the GOP!”
During a Fox News Commentary, host Tomi Lahren suggested Liz Cheney would have better luck in media rather than politics after losing her House of Representatives seat to primary challenger Harriet Hageman.
“My suggestion would be to run as a Democrat, it’s a much more fitting description,” Lahren argued. “Or better yet, maybe join the ladies of The View or host your own show on one of the many liberal networks. Either way, stay away from the GOP!”
Many have speculated that Cheney’s next move, depending on a potential Presidential campaign, could be in the media. CNN’s Don Lemon said “no network would turn down” Cheney if she wanted to do a show on a cable news outlet.
Cheney’s loss to Hageman appears to be the second largest by an incumbent House member in 60 years.

On his website, DePetro described the altercation as an “attack”. DePetro claims Perkins assaulted him while shouting he would kill the radio host. Perkins was later arrested for assault, which DePetro captured on vide..
DePetro told WLNE-TV “We can continue to search for answers into the disappearance of Charlotte Lester. We will offer a vigorous courtroom defense and I expect to be fully exonerated at trial where we will call the owner of the home to the stand.”
Warwick police charged DePetro with “willful trespassing”. His court date is slated for Thursday, September 1st.
