California Gov. Gavin Newsom peddled fear on Sunday that first responders in his state might lose their jobs as he demands a federal handout amid a critical budget deficit.

Newsom appeared on CNN’s “State of the Union” to discuss California’s $54 billion deficit for the year and demanded that Senate Republicans approve footing the bill for California’s financial woes as the state remains largely closed.

He claimed that without a bailout, municipalities in California would be forced to reduce the presence of police officers and firefighters in a state that is freeing violent criminals at an alarming rate and has plans to free more.
