Wednesday night, Tucker Carlson railed against Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) for attempting to impose her policies onto the Federal Reserve. He called her by his nickname for her, “Sandy Cortez.”

“Now Sandy Cortez who literally couldn’t balance a checkbook, has never had a real job has decided we need to turn the Fed into a vehicle to fight global warming,” Carlson said. “Imagine a world where Sandy Cortez weighs in on Fed policy or the power grid, but she does.”

AOC recently wrote a letter to President Biden to appoint a new Federal Reserve chair that reflected her values. Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), Chuy Garcia (D-IL) and Mondaire Jones (D-NY) joined her. “We urge President Biden to reimagine a federal reserve focused on eliminating climate risk and advancing racial and economic justice,” the letter read.

“How’s that going to end?” Carlson said. “With people with literally no skills whatsoever who can’t do anything, who could not program a microwave are in charge of the most complex and significant systems in the country.”

By law, he Federal Reserve is mandated only to ensure stable prices and employment.

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.
