On bail reform, Rep. Malliotakis has previously said:
“The reality is, under one-party rule at the national, state, and city levels, we’ve seen crime skyrocketing in many of America’s cities. In New York City, crime is once again up 35% compared to last year, and people in my city don’t feel safe. A number of policies have led to this, including New York’s botched bail law that has repeatedly released violent criminals back onto our streets, including 10 career criminals who’ve racked up nearly 500 arrests themselves. What is our Mayor doing about it? They’re looking to cut the NYPD’s budget once again by three percent after Mayor de Blasio slashed their budget by $1 billion.

A lot of the policies adopted by New York are being mimicked in Washington, including bail reform and stripping our police of qualified immunity. The combination of federal and state policies enacted under one-party Democrat rule has been a disaster, and it’s leading to my constituents and others across the nation being less safe. Democrats continue to put the drug cartels, career criminals, and bad guys ahead of law-abiding, taxpaying citizens. We must put an end to it, and House Republicans intend to do so come January.”

Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis

Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis was sworn in on January 3, 2021 to represent Staten Island and Southern Brooklyn. Prior to serving in the U.S. House of Representatives, Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis was elected to the New York State Assembly on November 2, 2010, defeating a two-term incumbent. In the Assembly, she served as Minority Whip and the ranking minority member of the Assembly Committee on Governmental Employees. For five terms, Congresswoman Malliotakis fought to restore ethics in Albany, expand transit service in her district, improve programs for senior citizens, reform education and improve New York’s economic climate by reducing the tax burden on small businesses and residents. A cornerstone of her tenure was helping her community recover and rebuild following the devastation of Hurricane Sandy in 2012. In addition to advocating for these same issues in Washington, Congresswoman Malliotakis is acutely focused on securing New York’s fair share of federal mass transit funding, which would go towards expanding transportation services and easing traffic congestion, while also championing public safety by supporting our nation’s law enforcement officers. Congresswoman Malliotakis is the daughter of immigrants, her father from Greece and her mother a Cuban exile of the Castro dictatorship. She is currently the only Republican member representing New York City in Congress, representing a district spanning the boroughs of Brooklyn and Staten Island.
