Sanctuary Cities (Opposing Viewpoints) (Paperback)
As part of his crackdown on illegal immigration, President Trump's vow to defund sanctuary cities, cities and counties that protect low-priority immigrants from deportation, has stirred up a hornet's nest of controversy. Are sanctuary cities legal? Should the federal government infringe on states' rights? Why should illegal immigrants be protected? Do sanctuary cities threaten national security and community safety? Do they encourage illegal immigration? These are among the many complicated questions posed in this enlightening anthology, in which diverse viewpoints address the swirling issues of immigration, federal vs. states' rights, and America's moral responsibility as a democracy.
