America’s ‘Sanctuary Cities’ Have Allowed Over 17,000 Convicted Criminal Illegals to Go Free

There are 276 “sanctuary cities” across the US. These are cities that blatantly violate the law on immigration by allowing illegals to stay unmolested by the authorities. Now a new study shows that in the last 8 months alone these so-called “sanctuary cities” have released over 8,000 illegals convicted of crimes back out into our population bringing the total released to over 17,000.

The report[1], titled “Ignoring Detainers, Endangering Communities State/local agencies release criminals rather than obey law,” shows that these so-called sanctuary cities are endangering every single American by releasing convicted criminals into our population centers just to satisfy their liberal political agenda.

Some 276 “sanctuary cities,” nearly 50 percent more than previously revealed, released over 8,000 illegal immigrants with criminal records or facing charges free despite federal requests that they be turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement for deportation, according to an explosive new report.

The Center for Immigration Studies, revealing new numbers it received under the Freedom of Information Act, said that those releases from cities that ignored federal demands came over just eight months and are just part of an even larger release of 17,000 illegals with criminal records.

Author Jessica M. Vaughan, director of policy Studies for the center, also reported that many of those illegals have been rearrested after their release and charged with nearly 7,500 new charges, including child sex abuse.

To be a Democrat is to support crime.
