Rep. Adriano Espaillat (D., N.Y.) said on CNN’s New Day on Tuesday that Trump’s plans to defund sanctuary cities was the same as putting at gun to the head of the American people, according to the Free Beacon.
From their report:
“This is a serious threat to the security of Americans throughout the country and particularly New York City, which is the largest, safest city in America,” Espaillat said.
“By yanking funding away and clawing back funding away from law enforcement, we’re putting average Americans at risk,” Espaillat said. “In fact, it’s almost like putting a gun in the head of Americans and playing Russian roulette.”
“This is egregious, and this is something that shouldn’t happen,” he concluded.
The Free Beacon also reported that Espaillat is the first former illegal immigrant in Congress.
Espaillat claim that defunding sanctuary cities is the same as putting at gun to the head of the American people is absolutely absurd.
If Espaillat had said that Forcing Americans to shelter illegal immigrants who are breaking the law and providing them with benefits paid for by tax-payers is the same as putting at gun to the head of the American people, he would then be correct.
