Sanctuary cities for illegal immigrants in US: Sanctuary cities for illegal immigrants in US?

  • Sanctuary is a time honored tradition.

    Illegal immigrants are here for a variety of reasons. Many of them have to escape economic injustice and some have been persecuted in their own lands. Sanctuary is a time honored tradition found in most cultures. If a city wanted to provide that for its illegal immigrants and receive others, then it would be providing a humane service and part of the answer to the problem.

  • Sanctuary cities are a good idea.

    Sanctuary cities are a good idea. America was built on the ideal tht any one can come here from any where and find a better life here. There needs to be a place for these people to go when they arrive in American so that they can receive help, and that's why sanctuary cities are needed.

  • They support our infrastructure

    States that are dependent on their immigrant population would crash economically and despite what we may believe the USA has one of the worst infrastructures in the world. Our train system alone is notoriously unadvanced compared to Japan's and our European allies. Not to mention if we get rid of illegal parents are deported, what are we going to do with their legal children? Just put them all in foster care or force them to go with their parents. Hate to break it to you, but there is more white crime than of all other ethnicities combined. They don't risk their lives to come here and kill us, but to create better lives for them and their children.

  • We don't have the space for them

    We already have enough homeless people and we are also short on jobs. Plus, one in five American families doesn't have a single working member. We should keep the jobs we get for our citizens, not illegal immigrants. If we keep sanctuary cities, we are encouraging illegal immigrants which we shouldn't do.

  • No we should not

    Illegals are not needed they are not wanted the only reason sanctuary cities were created was to increase democratic voters and make whites the minority not to mention the crimes incarcerated aliens had been arrested for a vast array of crimes:
    49 percent had been arrested for drugs;
    37 percent for burglary, stolen property or robbery;
    35 percent for assault;
    21 percent for fraud, forgery or counterfeiting
    19 percent for weapons violations
    13 percent for homicide or kidnapping, and
    12 percent for sex crimes. They are here illegally do you think they care about our laws

  • Immigration is left up to the Federal Level

    Immigration is one of the few things that should be left up to the federal level. I am all for states' rights, however I do believe that we need to stop with this marble cake style of federalism, and go back to the feds have their job which is small like the icing, the states have their job, big like the cake batter, and the small area of grey needs to be the part of the cake where icing and batter mix, small and barely noticeable. However, because of that, that means is since the icing is the first thing you see, i.e. federal level of government, they need to make the nationwide decisions because immigration affects everyone. If California and New Mexico, states that boarder each other, had different immigration, then a person could go to one state, and then move to the next one because they are a citizen of California. To prevent this have every state keep the same immigration level, decided by the Feds.

  • We don't have the space for them

    We already have enough homeless people and we are also short on jobs. Plus, one in five American families doesn't have a single working member. We should keep the jobs we get for our citizens, not illegal immigrants. If we keep sanctuary cities, we are encouraging illegal immigrants which we shouldn't do.

  • Because because because

    Because they are illegal, they are mostly criminals
    In 2011, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) released a study on approximately 250,000 illegal aliens locked up in our federal, state, and local prisons. They represent more than a quarter of all of the prisoners in the federal prison system alone. The GAO’s “study population” had been arrested nearly 1.7 million times and committed three million offenses, averaging about seven arrests and 12 offenses per criminal alien. The incarcerated aliens had been arrested for a vast array of crimes:
    49 percent had been arrested for drugs;
    37 percent for burglary, stolen property or robbery;
    35 percent for assault;
    21 percent for fraud, forgery or counterfeiting
    19 percent for weapons violations
    13 percent for homicide or kidnapping, and
    12 percent for sex crimes.

  • They are illegal

    These people are called ILLEGAL immigrants. Illegal means that the government finds this person or action to be against the constitution. These people go against the constitution, the document which was the base of our country. It's true we should help those seeking our aid overseas, but, we can do that by other means, such as providing refugee camps overseas. Also, if these illegal immigrants. Want to have better opportunities and want to be part of the American community, why couldn't they, when they had the chance,, go through the process,, like a proper, honest, person?
