New map shows 300 safe havens across U.S.
Sanctuary cities continue to be a festering public-safety problem throughout the country with about 300 identified by ICE as having a policy that is non-cooperative and obstructs immigration enforcement, the Center for Immigration Studies reported Wednesday.
That’s about the same number since CIS’ last update in January 2016, as some new sanctuary cities have been added and a few have reversed their sanctuary policies.
CIS published a newly updated interactive map showing all 300 sanctuary cities. (See the cities listed at end of this article.) These are in addition to four whole states – California, Connecticut, New Mexico, Colorado – that remain sanctuary states.
Fifteen states have zero sanctuary cities – Alabama, North Carolina, South Carolina, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Ohio, Oklahoma, Idaho, Indiana, Utah, West Virginia, Wyoming and South Dakota.
