Sanctuary policies bar public officials, including police officers, from asking an individual’s immigration status and from reporting illegal aliens to federal authorities.
In 1996, Congress passed a law that specifically prohibits state and local governments from enacting sanctuary policies. Despite that, cities such as San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago and Houston, still have sanctuary policies in place. Maine is the only state with a sanctuary policy. The would have been a huge incentive for states and municipalities to rescind their sanctuary policies.
Cities with sanctuary policies are officially favoring outlaw employers who hire illegal foreign workers over unemployed Americans and legal immigrants.
The Senators who voted YES to table the Vitter amendment were taking a strong pro-illegal-alien position even though most will tell their constituents that they oppose illegal immigration.
Those Senators especially chose to side against Black and Hispanic Americans who make up the largest part of the unemployed in those sanctuary cities. Are these Senators racist? Maybe not. But their pro-sanctuary stance has the effect of racism by disproportionately keeping jobs out of the hands of America’s unemployed minorities.
