The latest studies show that it is a FACT that when a city implements and applies the proper immigration laws that crime rates do in fact drop. That is not a racist statistic, nor a false one. Phoenix, Arizona has seen quite a drop in crimes since walking away from the Sanctuary city status and have no choice but to admit that it is due to the fact that most illegal immigrants are illegals because of criminal lifestyles and when they no longer have sanctuary they tend to stop committing so many crimes in order to stay off of the radar.
According to Fox:
At the center of national debate, a question remains unanswered: Are sanctuary cities that protect illegal immigrants safer than non-sanctuary cities? Sanctuary supporters claim they are. “Police chiefs across the nation believe that enlisting local police to enforce immigration law is a bad idea,” California Senate President Pro Tem Kevin De Leon, a Democrat, claimed at a news conference last week. “Having [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] pluck criminals out of jail and send them across the border or wherever they came from only to come right back endangers our communities.” But is that true?
And at least one city, Phoenix, saw a drop in crime after it eliminated its sanctuary city status, according to former law enforcement officials. Yet, some 200 cities nationwide adopted sanctuary policies and lawmakers propose to make California a sanctuary state. While the statute is opposed by the statewide county sheriff’s association, Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck supports the bill that would prohibit local police from cooperating with ICE requests for information on illegal immigrants in custody.
“We do not want to dilute trust because trust is the most important thing in policing,” said Chief Beck. “We depend on our communities, particularly our immigrant communities to cooperate with us, not only to keep them safe but to keep all of you safe.” Beck and De Leon were joined by former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder. They oppose two bills passed Thursday by the House. One measure – named Kate’s law after a young woman who was killed by an illegal immigrant who had been deported five times – stiffens punishment for people who re-enter the US illegally. The other strips some federal dollars from “sanctuary” cities that refuse to cooperate with ICE.

(AP) In the eyes of Levi Bolton, executive director to the Arizona Police Association, that would be a mistake. In May 2008, Phoenix reversed itself, becoming a non-sanctuary state. Under the policy, police had full discretion to ask suspects about their immigration status and had the freedom to call ICE.
Take that California! I predict that now that funding will be drastically cut too many of these so-called sanctuary cities that they will start allowing their police to cooperate with ICE agents in rounding up these criminals and getting them out of our country and upon doing so they will all see a dramatic drop in crimes across the board. More Winning!
