What the racists, bigots, and uneducated get wrong about sanctuary cities is EVERYTHING!!!! Sanctuary cities DO NOT protect criminals. What sanctuary cities do is when someone calls the police to report a crime (like rape or murder) the police do not ask whether the individual calling in is a citizen. This makes sanctuary cities safer than non sanctuary cities because people call in to report crimes. Another positive thing about sanctuary cities is that the federal government CANNOT hold an individual in jail for no reason for an unlimited time. So for the uneducated, in non-sanctuary cities, the Feds will hold someone without giving a reason for however long they want, the CITY HAS TO PAY THE COSTS, which means your taxes go up in your city or state. Now in sanctuary cities, the Feds have to give a reason to hold someone and if it’s a misdemeanor they have so many days to release, which means the city doesn’t have a huge bill to pay.
