Rep.-elect Nicole Malliotakis, R-N.Y., says she could put together an "anti-socialist squad" of right-wing lawmakers to go against the progressive left congressional lawmakers known as "The Squad," led by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, according to Fox News.

Malliotakis is one of 35 Republican women who were newly elected to the House of Representatives in 2021. 

"You have AOC and the socialist squad, now we have individuals who come from very diverse backgrounds -- many of whom fled communism or socialism themselves or are like me, a daughter of a Cuban refugee -- to be those messengers to say why socialism is bad and to push back and to make sure that we fight to preserve our freedoms and liberties and we reopen our economy, we keep the capitalist system that provides jobs and opportunity."

“I can tell you here in NYC, and I assume in cities across America, people were really fed up with the direction the Democrats were trying to take us,” said Malliotakis, who will represent New York's 11th District, which covers Staten Island and parts of South Brooklyn.

Malliotakis said Ocasio-Cortez and New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio have moved NYC “so much to the left.” 

“And you have individuals like my opponent [Democratic Rep. Max Rose], who had rallied with the 'Defund the police' movement and really had just gone along with the gang," she said, "and people want to see a two-party system, they want to see checks and balances, and I will be the only Republican representing our city in Washington and it is a much-needed voice and perspective.” 

Malliotakis defeated Rose incumbent on Thursday and he pledged a "smooth transition" of power.
