80% of Americans Oppose Sanctuary Cities; Where Do Corporations Stand?

The Hill is reporting a new poll shows 80% of voters oppose the sanctuary city policies that prevent police and local officials from working with federal authorities to enforce immigration laws.

A co-director of the survey was quoted saying:

“While there is broad support for comprehensive immigration reform, there is overwhelming opposition to sanctuary cities. The public wants honest immigrants treated fairly and those who commit crimes deported and that’s very clear from the data.”

This overwhelming opposition to sanctuary cities indicates that Americans stand in stark contrast to the advocacy funded by major corporations like Bank of America, Walmart and others. These companies directly support organizations like LULAC and La Raza who have openly lobbied to keep sanctuary policies in place.

2ndVote’s immigration scores look at how these companies fund these groups because their policy positions are a real public safety concern. Here are 20 companies that have directly funded both LULAC and La Raza with links to their scorepages:
