Does the US have sanctuaries like Canada? More specifically S.C.
OH! not animal Sanctuaties...I'm talking about the original term of Sanctuary, the kind for people!

Elissa, there are some cities and one county that have declared themselves to be sanctuary areas for people who arrive undocumented but the reality is, unlike Canada during Vietnam, the U.S. federal government doesn't acknowledge that and will deport if the person is caught. All "sanctuary cities" means is that the local police have a "don't ask, don't tell" policy and won't arrest solely due to improper immigration status.

Here are some of them:

Bell Gardens, CA
City of Industry, CA
City of Commerce, CA
Cypress, CA
Davis CA
Downey, CA
Fresno, CA
Lakewood, CA
Los Angeles, CA
Long Beach, CA
Lynwood, CA
Maywood, CA
Montebello, CA
National City, CA
Norwalk, CA
Paramount, CA
Pico Rivera, CA
So. Gate, CA
San Bernardino, Ca.
San Diego, CA
Santa Cruz, CA
San Francisco,
San Jose, CA
Sonoma County, CA
Vernon, CA
Watsonville, CA
Wilmington, CA

Not surprisingly, most of the cities on that list (particularly the smaller ones) are such nice, peaceful, wholesome, clean, decent places to live.

I'm surprised that Bezerkely isn't on that list along with its unwholesome slutty sister, Frisco.

Frisco is a town in Colorado. I don't believe it's a sister city to Berkeley.
