SANCTUARY CITIES AND STATES
For up-to-the-minute, factual, educational, and informative news on illegal immigration and sanctuary cities, we suggest you listed to the Glenn Beck and Michael Savage shows!
You are in the right place if you are here looking for what is a sanctuary city, a list of sanctuary cities, what are the sanctuary cities in the US, sanctuary states, and even for information on Mexifornia. In the past 21 months, immigration authorities have issued more than 230,000 detainers, according to ICE. Since January 2014, law enforcement agencies around the country have failed to honor about 17,000 detainers, 61 percent of them in California, ICE said. You shouldn't wonder why there is so much crime related to illegal immigrants in California. As the saying goes, you get what you ask for!
Sanctuary is a term for cities, counties, or states that are defying a federal law relative to the various government agencies being required to assist the federal government with their illegal immigrants. In 1996 a federal law was passed called the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act (IIRIR) that requires local governments to cooperate with Department of Homeland Security's Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Contrary to this law, many of these governments are officially or unofficially defying the law and have passed various local policies to ignore the federal law and not question the status of suspected illegal immigrants. Those in defiance of the law prefer to call them undocumented workers and help protect the illegal immigrants from being deported.
"The simple truth is that we've lost control of our own borders, and no nation can do that and survive."
– Ronald Reagan

* We have been contacted by Steve Salvi of Ohio Jobs & Justice PAC (OJJPAC.org) regarding the use of his sanctuary city list. Versions of his list are all over the internet, some of which make no reference to the source. The cities listed here came from a variety of lists and since then I have added to that base list. As a result the list here is from a variety of sources but we do want to acknowledge the hard work put in by Steve to create his list. Be sure to stop by his site for his latest list.
Mayors of Sanctuary Cities Who Disregard Federal Law Should Be Arrested

The United States is either a nation of people ruled by laws and Constitution, or we are a nation ruled by ideological tyrants. One example of this is the illegal protecting by “Sanctuary cities” of convicted criminals.
“It is time to start locking up local officials like Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel for interfering with the enforcement of federal immigration law,” Matthew Vadum of Canada Free Press recently wrote.
Notably, the Department of Justice’s Inspector General published a memorandum in July finding that the practices of sanctuary jurisdictions violate federal law.
The DOJ Inspector General announced this finding despite the Obama Administrations’ emboldening sanctuary cities and counties by not legally pursuing such cities, which refuse to enforce or comply with federal immigration laws. The Obama administration’s lack of immigration enforcement has contributed greatly to this blatant lawlessness.
Additionally, “Obama and his administration have aggressively pursued states and local jurisdictions that desire to assist and help enforce federal immigration laws,” Lana Shadwick of Breitbart Texas wrote.
Remember that the Obama Justice Department filed a lawsuit in 2010 challenging the constitutionality of Arizona’s law targeting illegal aliens, despite that 70% of Arizona voters supported the law.
But the DOJ report was held back for two months before being published—released only a day after Senate Democrats killed a bill written in response to Kate Steinle’s murder in San Francisco by a criminal illegal alien, deported and released more than five times by the San Francisco sheriff’s department. Because of San Francisco’s pro-illegal alien sanctuary city policy, the Sheriff refused to honor a detainer request for the illegal alien issued by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the Daily Caller reported.
California: A Sanctuary StateIn 2012, a California ballot initiative titled the California Opportunity and Prosperity Act, failed to get enough signatures to quality for the November ballot.
Then-Assemblyman Felipe Fuentes, together with then-CA-Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg, both Democrats, revived the attempt. In one of the most repugnant moves legislators can make, they gutted and amended SB 901, breathing new life into creating a “safe harbor” for illegal immigrants in California, I wrote at CalWatchdog in 2012. The sanctuary discussions began with allowing counties to opt in or out of becoming sanctuary counties. But when SB 901 was gutted and amended to include the new language, Steinberg used language that would make the entire state a sanctuary state.
Additionally and egregiously, then-Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, a San Francisco Democrat, authored AB 1081 which sought to remove the teeth of the Federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Secure Communities program.
Current law requires local law enforcement agencies to submit arrestees’ fingerprints to ICE, as well as several other Federal Bureau of Investigation databases, and then have these federal agencies access the arrestee’s documented criminal and immigration history.
But according to Ammiano, because the federal immigration program allows local police agencies to investigate and enforce immigration laws on anyone in the U.S. illegally, instead of just pursuing and arresting the most dangerous illegal immigrants, it was too problematic for his liberal California.
Picking and choosing which lawbreakers get deported is apparently what California Democrats want California law enforcement to be able to do. Fortunately, Sen. Steinberg’s Sanctuary State bill, SB 901 died a timely death, and Assemblyman Ammiano’s AB 1081 was vetoed by the Governor.
