The Mythology of Sanctuary Cities by Kit Johnson, Southern California Interdisciplinary Law Journal, Vol. 28, 2019

Abstract

Sanctuary jurisdictions — be they cities, counties, or states — employ various means of disentangling local law enforcement from federal civil immigration enforcement. Much of the criticism directed at these “sanctuary cities” revolves around a set of myths — such as that these jurisdictions are lawless or dangerous. This Essay identifies nine myths about sanctuary cities and subjects each to a fact-based shakedown.  Download the document to see what the nine myths are.
