California Governor Gavin Newsom has a stark message for Republican lawmakers — if the federal government doesn’t give financial aid to California, they’ll only be punishing first responders.

“I hope they’ll consider this, the next time they want to salute and celebrate our heroes and first responders, our police officers and firefighters, consider the fact that they are the first ones that will be laid off by cities and counties,” Newsom told CNN’s Jake Tapper during a Sunday morning interview when asked what will happen if California doesn’t get federal aid.
