The Washington Times is reporting that the Ohio Jobs & Justice PAC (OJJPAC) now lists almost 500 “sanctuary cities” in its database of jurisdictions that implement policies preventing local officials from coordinating with federal immigration agents.
The list, which was originally compiled in 2007 and is one of the longest of its kind, has added more than three dozen new “sanctuary cities” in 2017 alone.
Steve Salvi, the founder of OJJPAC, believes “more will be coming” because of “resolutions in the works and citizens groups encouraging city councils to pass them.”
The resource page, which can be viewed here, has a considerable amount of information and commentary on sanctuary cities and the problems associated with them. OJJPAC also explains the motivations behind the reasons local governments try to implement sanctuary policies:
Some politicians attempt to appease politically powerful illegal immigration support groups such as the National Council of La Raza (NCLR), Mexican American Legal Defense & Education Fund (MALDF), and League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) that lobby local governments to implement formal or informal sanctuary policies.
We’re very familiar with groups like La Raza and LULAC because these liberal groups have financial support from several of the companies in our database. Here’s a list of companies that directly fund both of these organizations and their advocacy for sanctuary cities:
