Recently, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Acting Director Ken Cuccinelli revealed that there are 22 million illegal immigrants here in the U.S., nearly twice the estimate regularly cited. Sanctuary cities shield illegal immigrants, especially dangerous ones, from being deported. The most dangerous criminals are given protection while the communities are left vulnerable.
Sanctuary cities are unwilling to help U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, but former acting ICE Director Tom Homan says that the violent crimes committed by illegal immigrants would be prevented if sanctuary cities cooperated.
