    Cities and counties that limit their cooperation with federal immigration agents are sometimes called "sanctuaries," but the word doesn't actually have any legal meaning. However, because the constitution prohibits the federal government from making states enforce its laws, cities, counties, and other local jurisdictions have lots of freedom to ignore, or comply with, requests from federal agencies like ICE to detain undocumented immigrants for deportation. is a news website that helps you cut through the noise and understand what's really driving the events in the headlines.

    this video is total propaganda. lol. I live in Tucson AZ, a sanctuary city an hour from the border, and the way they took care of the high crime rates in our city, was by drawing a huge boarder around the heart of the city with the highest concentration of illegals. They then designated this area a separate city altogether, called it "The City of South Tucson" and Voila! The number of crimes in Tucson dropped overnight because the concentration of illegals in the heart of the city, have been handed their own new city. So now all the kidnappings, rapes and murders in The City of South Tucson, don't show up on The City of Tucson statistics even though The City of South Tucson is surrounded by the City of Tucson . This is how we fight illegal immigration in sanctuary cities. As the illegals flood in, we have to be brave enough to stand up and draw a new line on a map, giving the land to the illegals altogether. SMH That's how sanctuary cities work. This video is for people that need to be told what to think by the globalists. Those people always get manipulated. Count me out.

    Way to cherry-pick and take out of context Conservative commentators. Making your place a "sanctuary city" is only making you a target for more illegal immigrants. We need to discourage illegal immigration and encourage people wishing to live here to follow proper immigration procedures.
    BTW, say it with me; "Illegal immigrant" not "unauthorized immigrant" They're here illegally.

    Sanctuary cities basically refuse to cooperate with Federal authorities and don't allow the law to be exercised. These cities will be punished severely for doing this in the near future. They are not off the hook.

    Question: "What does the Bible say about illegal immigration?"
    Answer: Note: We wholeheartedly believe that Christians are called to be compassionate and merciful toward immigrants (Exodus 22:21; Leviticus 19:33-34; Matthew 25:35). We also believe that the United States should have a more compassionate and merciful immigration policy. However, that is not the question at hand. The question at hand concerns illegal immigration-whether it is wrong to violate a nation’s borders and transgress its immigration laws.

    Romans 13:1-7 makes it abundantly clear that God expects us to obey the laws of the government. The onlyexception to this is when a law of the government forces us to disobey a command of God (Acts 5:29). Illegal immigration is the breaking of a government’s law. There is nothing in Scripture that contradicts the idea of a sovereign nation having immigration laws. Therefore, it is rebellion against God to unlawfully enter another country. Illegal immigration is a sin.
    Illegal immigration is definitely a controversial issue in the United States (and some other countries) today. Some argue that the immigration laws are unfair, unjust, and even discriminatory-thus giving individuals justification to immigrate illegally. However, Romans 13:1-7 does not give any permission to violate a law just because it is perceived as unjust. Again, the issue is not the fairness of a law. The only biblical reason to violate a government’s law is if that law violates God's Word. When Paul wrote the book of Romans, he was under the authority of the Roman Empire, led by Emperor Nero. Under that reign, there were many laws that were unfair, unjust, and/or blatantly evil. Still, Paul instructed Christians to submit to the government.
    Are the immigration laws of the United States unfair or unjust? Some think so, but that is not the issue. All developed countries in the world have immigration laws, some more strict than the USA’s, and some less strict, and all have to deal with illegal immigration. There is nothing in the Bible to prohibit a country from having completely open borders or to have completely closed borders. Romans 13:1-7 also gives the government the authority to punish lawbreakers. Whether the punishment is imprisonment, deportation, or even something more severe, it is within the rights of the government to determine.
    Illegal immigration is a complex issue. The vast majority of illegal immigrants in the United States have come for the purpose of having a better life, providing for their families, and escaping poverty. These are good goals and motivations. However, it is not biblical to violate a law to achieve a “good.” Caring for the poor, orphans, and widows is something the Bible commands us to do (Galatians 2:10; James 1:27; 2:2-15). However, the biblical fact that we are to care for the unfortunate does not mean we should violate the law in doing so. Supporting, enabling, and/or encouraging illegal immigration is, therefore, a violation of God’s Word. Those seeking to emigrate to another country should always obey the immigration laws of that country. While this may cause delays and frustrations, it is better than acting illegally. A frustrating law is still a law.
    What is the biblical solution to illegal immigration? Simple-don’t do it; obey the laws. If disobedience is not a biblical option, what can be done in regards to an unjust immigration law? It is completely within the rights of citizens to seek to change immigration laws. If it is your conviction that an immigration law is unjust, do everything that is legally within your power to get the law changed: pray, petition, vote, peacefully protest, etc. As Christians, we should be the first to seek to change any law that is unjust. At the same time, we are also to demonstrate our submission to God by obeying the government He has placed in authority over us.
    “Be subject for the Lord’s sake to every human institution, whether it be to the emperor as supreme, or to governors as sent by him to punish those who do evil and to praise those who do good. For this is the will of God, that by doing good you should put to silence the ignorance of foolish people. Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of God” (1 Peter 2:13-16).
