"In Focus" Host Cheryl Wills talks to Daniel Dromm, a Queens city councilman and the head of the council's Finance Committee, and New York City Independent Budget Office Director Ronnie Lowenstein, about an item not mentioned in Mayor Bill de Blasio's budget proposal: the MTA. Gov. Andrew Cuomo wants the city to pay more, but the mayor says it cannot and will not. So who will pay to keep the subways up and running? Councilman Dromm also addresses his and the city's commitment to remaining a "sanctuary city," despite President Trump's threats to cut funding. Watch In Focus on Sundays at 10:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.
