NYC Councilwoman Discusses Danger of Proposed New Housing Law

Monday morning on FOX and Friends, Ainsley Earhardt interviewed New York City councilwoman Inna Kernikov (R) to discuss Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s soft-on-crime policies and a proposed law to deny landlords background checks for tenants.

With Bragg’s policies, the city has had more than half of its felony cases downgraded to misdemeanors, and crime has increased under his leadership. Kernikov explained that the new law that is being proposed, which prohibits any criminal background checks to be done by a landlord, is seriously threatening to all New Yorkers. If this law is passed, anyone can move next door to anyone meaning an ex-rapist, ex-murderer, or ex-robber can move next door to families who would not have any idea of the threatening status of their neighbors. 


Karnikov added that she does not mean to suggest that people should not get second chances, but not being able to at least look at the criminal record of potential tenants is “insane.”
