Sanctuary cities don’t harbor terrible criminals. Some criminals are wrongfully accused. Out of the entire prison system in America, 1% of individuals (22,000) people, have been wrongfully accused.
If someone is wrongfully accused, they would want to escape from the reach of the law.
Another thing that sanctuary cities do is protect illegal immigrants. Illegal immigrants try to escape from a horrible life to find better opportunities in other countries.
However, they’re considered illegal because they don’t provide the right paperwork and don’t financially support the government though taxes. But because they’re escaping a bad life, sanctuary cities provide protection from deportation.
The law isn’t always fair. The law only sees black and white. Unfortunate individuals can get accused of a crime they never committed. Families need to be safe. That’s why the world needs sanctuary cities to be the gray middle ground.
