Arizona Legislature Must Pass Ban on Sanctuary Cities





All of them are sanctuary cities that care more about political correctness than protecting their own citizens, as well as visitors.

San Francisco is only the tip of the iceberg showing the horrific crimes committed by illegal aliens. We’ve got more than our share of illegal alien crime in Arizona as well.

The madness of the political Left has shown its true colors time and time again. It is high time Americans take the necessary steps to bring the rule of law back to cities and outlaw sanctuary status to harbor illegal alien criminals. Either Chandler, Mesa, Phoenix and Tucson can restore the rule of law, or the state can do it for them.

We challenge the Arizona Legislature to call a special session at once to pass a ban on sanctuary cities. We challenge Gov. Doug Ducey to sign the ban into law.


U.S. Senator Richard Shelby (R-Alabama) is urging the Department of Justice NOT to award federal grants to sanctuary cities. Attorney General Loretta Lynch will of course ignore this because sanctuary cities are totally in line with misguided leftist philosophy. Nevertheless, we applaud Senator Shelby for doing the right thing.

    My understanding is that Section 1 of AZ SB1070 which forbade sanctuary cities was not part of the Supreme Court challenge. The court struck down three parts of Section 2 — requiring the carry of papers, potential warrantless arrests and prohibition of employment. I believe Arizona is good on banning sanctuary cities despite several claims I have found online that list the 4 cities you cite

    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.

    As a resident of Chandler I called the city & they claim they are not a sanctuary city. They claim their legal staff is trying to address this misinformation. What say you?
