Rep. Adriano Espaillat (D-N.Y.) accused the Trump administration Tuesday of gambling with American lives after Trump threatened to pull federal funding for law enforcement in so-called sanctuary cities.
"By yanking funding away and clawing back funding away from law enforcement, we're putting average Americans at risk," he said during an interview on CNN's "New Day." "In fact, it's almost like putting a gun to the head of Americans and playing Russian roulette."
