Studies show sanctuary cities are safer

By on September 28, 2018

Joe Robach voted to end sanctuary cities in New York State (S.3698). Studies show that sanctuary cities are safer than non-sanctuary cities. A study by Center on Juvenile and Criminal Justice stated “But overall, African-American, Latino, Asian and Native-American residents generally experience greater safety in countries with at least some sanctuary policies”. Another study by Tom K. Wong, from University of California-San Diego found “35.5 fewer violent and property crimes per 10,000 people versus non-sanctuary ones”. The report also states “The data supports arguments made by law enforcement executives that communities are safer when law enforcement agencies do not become entangled in federal immigration enforcement efforts “. Why does Mr. Robach want to make Rochester less safe? We need a new state senator.
