Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni refuses to be deterred by her critics, asserting that her actions speak louder than words. In an exclusive interview with FOX Business’ Maria Bartiromo, she brushed off recent criticism from The New York Times, emphasizing her unwavering commitment to the betterment of Italy and its economy.

When asked about the scathing opinion piece that labeled her policies as “scary,” Meloni remained undeterred. “There is nothing I want to tell to those who criticize me. I think it is a right they have,” she said. “The only way I like to respond is with results, so I react. I do what I think is right for my nation, for the interests of my nation, and I think that what is happening in Italy is the only thing that really can give an answer or not.”

Furthermore, she made her vow to stand tall beside Italian companies, nurturing a fertile ground for growth to take root. Her message, to the world is of a government united with its people to forge a nation of prosperity. “We want to create richness,” she stated, pointing to a time when institutions and people would meld in harmony.

Undeterred by the barrage of criticism hurled her way by left-wing voices, Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni stands resolute, unwavering in her mission for Italy’s future. A recent New York Times essay penned by author David Broder attempted to cast shadows upon her government, likening her to historical figures of the past, including Mussolini. Broder voiced concerns, labeling her approach as nativist and hinting at an authoritarian inclination.

While acknowledging that Italy has its challenges, Michael Lee, founder of Michael Lee Strategy, echoed the sentiment that being part of the EU can present difficulties in governing the country. Despite skepticism, he expressed hope for Italy’s success.

In her interview with Bartiromo, Meloni proudly shared Italy’s accomplishments, including robust economic growth, higher job rates, and a sense of optimism within the workforce. As she confidently charts the course for Italy’s future, she remains unshaken by detractors and focused on delivering tangible results for her nation.

Giorgia Meloni’s unyielding commitment to her country and her pro-economic policies have left both supporters and critics alike intrigued. As Italy continues its journey toward progress, her actions and achievements may serve as a testament to her belief in Italy’s potential and the power of her conservative principles.

NYC bill trying to repeal ‘sanctuary city’ laws put in place by liberal Mayor Bill de Blasio

New York lawmakers are introducing a bill this week to undo “sanctuary city” laws approved from 2014-2018 under then-Mayor Bill de Blasio, a Democrat. Council members Robert Holden (D-Queens) and Joe Borelli (R-Staten Island) told The New York Post they’ll introduce the bill Thursday.

Among the laws to be reversed include the prohibiting of the NYPD, and Correction and Probation departments from cooperating with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents unless the cases involve suspected terrorists or serious public safety risks. It would also reverse rules prohibiting city agencies from partnering with ICE to enforce federal immigration laws.

“Sanctuary city laws put all New Yorkers, both immigrants and longtime residents, in danger by preventing the NYPD and DOC from working with ICE,” said Holden, a moderate Dem. “We do not need to import criminals, and only 23 years since 9/11, we have forgotten the deadly consequences of poor interagency communication. We must repeal these laws immediately.”

“Like most things in New York, sanctuary city policy is a social experiment gone off the rails,” said Borelli. “All the problems with these local laws came out during the public-hearing process, but the Council just stepped harder on the gas pedal.”

In February, Mayor Eric Adams called for the rules to be loosened so migrants “suspected” of “serious” crimes could also be turned over to ICE — as they once were under sanctuary city policies implemented as early as 1989 under ex-mayors Ed Koch and Michael Bloomberg.

Among public reasons for the push is the murder of Georgia nursing student Laken Riley.  If it wasn’t for the sanctuary city policies, Riley is among other deaths that could have been prevented if the policies were not in place, Holden and other critics have said.

The 22-year-old was found dead Feb. 22 on the University of Georgia’s campus, six months after her alleged killer Jose Antonio Ibarra, 26, was arrested in Queens and charged with endangering a child.

The Post explains of the case:

The NYPD had no choice but to cut the Venezuelan-born Ibarra loose — instead of turning him over to federal immigration officials — because he didn’t have any major crime convictions.

Council Speaker Adrienne Adams shot down the mayor’s idea just one day later, saying she and the rest of the Council’s progressive Democratic majority wouldn’t be considering any rule changes. The bill introduced this week is also likely to face objections from the Council’s left-wing Democratic majority.
