Details

While sanctuary cities have been in existence since the 1980s, recent events have brought about renewed attention. Do sanctuary policies breed crime, as some have argued, or do they help to politically incorporate immigrant populations? Hear Collingwood (University of California, Riverside) and O’Brien (San Diego State University) argue that sanctuary cities provide important protection for immigrants, with no empirical support for negative consequences.
