A stunning new poll conducted by Harvard-Harris, exclusively for The Hill, found that the overwhelming majority of Americans, 80% in fact, believe that illegal immigrants arrested for crimes should be turned over to federal immigration authorities rather than being harbored in so-called sanctuary cities. Imagine that, Americans believe that local, state and federal law enforcement officials should actually enforce the law…shocking.
Meanwhile, 52% of those surveyed said they support Trump’s executive order to build a border wall and revoke funding for sanctuary cities while 53% said they support his “immigration ban” that was recently overturned by the 9th Circuit court.
Of course, this is undoubtedly unwelcome news for sanctuary cities across the country that are at risk of losing their federal subsidies for harboring criminal illegal aliens. As we recently pointed out, just the top 10 sanctuary cities receive roughly $2.3 billion in federal subsidies every year.
