A recent poll conducted by UC Berkeley ended with absolutely shocking results about sanctuary cities in California. The study concluded that 74% of residents hope to completely end sanctuary city policies.
It seems logical that if you allow more and more people into those cities it creates fewer jobs and resources for those who actually live there. But many people still believe these cities and policies should remain. Breitbart wrote on those who disagreed with getting rid of the cities saying:
“The issue to end sanctuary cities in the state crosses racial and party lines, with 65 percent of Hispanics registering their agreement, while 70 percent of independents, 82 percent of Republicans, and 73 percent of Democrats feel the same.”
It’s assumed that not only will these cities be reversing their policies but the Trump administration will also cut federal funding to them. This will likely happen under the authority of the new Department of Justice, Jeff Sessions.
Sessions has long been a conservative member of the U.S. Senate and has largely voiced his opposition to illegal immigration, backed much of the Bush administration, and proposed a national amendment to ban same-sex marriage. He probably stands as one of the most conservative members of the Senate but will now be working with President Trump in a still unknown position but is assumed to become the Attorney General.
