Power & Politics: Rep. Malliotakis on McCarthy’s removal; NYC’s migrant crisis latest
The last few weeks in Washington have been anything but boring – from the last-minute passage of a bill to temporarily fund the federal government, to the historic removal of Rep. Kevin McCarthy as speaker of the House. This week, Kurt Semder sat down with Republican Rep. Nicole Malliotakis to find out her thoughts on the vote, the funding bill and why she is pushing to remove a fellow New York representative from Congress.
Also, are migrant relief centers being equally distributed across New York City? One Brooklyn lawmaker doesn't think so. A chat with Assembly Member Rodneyse Bichotte Hermelyn.
Finally – looking at the latest in the city's migrant crisis, the length of shelter stays has been a major topic of discussion. Mayor Eric Adams tightened rules to limit adult migrants to just 30 days in city-run facilities, but now there is a proposal to change that.
