Rep. Malliotakis Calls For Charges Against Curtis Sliwa, Scott LoBaido, Others Wrongfully Arrested To Be Dropped


Malliotakis Calls for Charges Against Migrant Shelter Protesters to be Dropped


(STATEN ISLAND, NY) – Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis (NY-11) today released the following statement after concerned citizens were wrongfully arrested for protesting the use of a senior citizen assisted living facility as a migrant shelter on Staten Island.
“In the summer of 2020, police were told to lay off BLM protestors rioting in our streets.
“But now citizens peacefully protesting the city’s secret deal that led to the eviction of senior citizens at an assisted living facility to house migrants who illegally entered our country at taxpayer expense are being arrested at the direction of our Mayor.
“This is outrageous and I call on our district attorney to DROP any and all charges against Curtis Sliwa, Scott Lobaido and the other concerned citizens who were wrongfully arrested.”

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. She is a passionate advocate for animal rights and the strengthening of animal cruelty laws, and in her spare time, enjoys spending time with her chihuahua, Peanut.

    Mr. Sliwa looks like he’s praying. I don’t know the man but that’s what it looks like to me.

    Ms. Malliotakis is doing better work these days. I have to say her critics from four years ago were wrong about her. She has integrity.

      I think it’s great to heap praises where praises are due. But why do people have to temper it with a BARB? This is our new culture. Everyone has to JUDGE and RATE everything and EVERYONE. We’re not doing a TikTok video rating pizza. It is just so inappropriate. And een rating pizza…I’m freaking sick of it, already! We all have different taste.

      Get some manners.

      I’m really not political. But seriously, if you don’t have something good to say,…think for yourself. Stop listening to the local block mayor. Malliotakis has been the same person all along. You just agree with her now on some issue. So, you looked and realized she isn’t what some other person said? Use Google and look these elected men and women up.

      Don’t go by word-of-mouth.
