Sanctuary Cities Saving Lives

April 18th, 2018

It’s all BS.

Amidst all of the fearful whimpering coming from Trump, conservatives and deplorables, is how “Sanctuary Cities” are making us unsafe, and contributing to crime. That’s a lie.

Think about it. Law abiding, tax paying, hard working undocumented Americans have much to lose, not only at the hands of Trump and his ICE henchman, but at the hands of criminals. In “Sanctuary Cities,” undocs cooperate with local authorities to help find and stop criminals. Something they can’t do when those same cops treat them as criminals when they reports crimes.

Criminals from outside the US can be best tracked down and arrested with the help of those in the communities on which they prey. And they are successful.

Making America Great? It’s not the work of  fearful fat, orange men, but instead the people of real color who are the future of this broken country.
