With all this controversy, I feel like 'sanctuary' is too strong a word. The citizens of these cities are simply expecting the federal government to do it's job. Plus, what would cutting off funds do? Without the funding police forces would become insufficient, causing more crime and even less safety for the other citizens. I agree that illegal immigrants didn't do things the right way, illegal is illegal. But this IS NOT THE RIGHT WAY! Maybe we should look into the difficulty levelo of the process to legally get into this country, remember, alot of people come into this country for opportunities, we don't want the heart of America to be dimmed simply because people don't understand how wrong this is! And for those saying that they are paying for these people to be in this country illegally, you are also paying for them to be deported, and to be on trial!
