Sanctuary Cities’ Cooperation Could Prevent A Lot of Crime

Recently, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Acting Director Ken Cuccinelli revealed that there are 22 million illegal immigrants here in the U.S., nearly twice the estimate regularly cited.

Sanctuary cities are unwilling to help U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, but former acting ICE Director Tom Homan says that the violent crimes committed by illegal immigrants would be prevented if sanctuary cities cooperated.

New Report Shows Walls Work

As it turns out, President Trump is right about Mexico. They will do their part in stopping the flow of illegal immigrants if you twist their arm hard enough.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is setting an incredible example of government transparency that other U.S. Departments and bureaucratic agencies should follow. ICE just released a list of illegal immigrants who were incarcerated in sanctuary cities for crimes other than crossing the border, and now are about to be released into the United States. Sanctuary laws protect dangerous illegal immigrants and mandate that local law enforcement refuse to cooperate with ICE, a federal agency. The Daily Signal goes into detail regarding the types of people being released into American communities: “There is an inherent increase in risk to ...
