The Wikipedia article has more interesting things to say about So-Called "Sanctuary Cities" and tells of crimes that these "wonderful people that come into our country to do the jobs that Americans won't do" have committed:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sanctuary_cities

I would go further by saying that some cities seem to have an unofficial "sanctuary" city policy.. Cities that allow illegal aliens to break the laws in other ways like loitering for hours on end outside of businesses to find jobs, etc..

Thanks. All those cities are fairly large. Are there many smaller towns/cities that are also criminal alien havens?

Here's another list that I found from an article that I googled:

An August 14, 2006 report produced by the Congressional Research Service listed 31 cities and counties that have “don’t ask, don’t tell” sanctuary policies in place. They are:

Anchorage, Alaska
Fairbanks, Alaska
Chandler, Arizona
Fresno, California
Los Angeles, California
San Diego, California
San Francisco, California
Sonoma County, California
Evanston, Illinois
Cicero, Illinois
Cambridge, Massachusetts
Orleans, Massachusetts
Portland, Maine
Baltimore, Maryland
Takoma Park, Maryland
Ann Arbor, Michigan
Minneapolis, Minnesota
Durham, North Carolina
Albuquerque, New Mexico
Aztec, New Mexico
Rio Arriba County, New Mexico
Sante Fe, New Mexico
New York, New York
Ashland, Oregon
Gaston, Oregon
Marion County, Oregon
Austin, Texas
Houston, Texas
Katy, Texas
Seattle, Washington
Madison, Wisconsin.

Article is here:
'Sanctuary Cities Embrace Illegal Immigrants - HUMAN EVENTS


I don't know how accurate this list is as I've also read that Anchorage, AK City officials are trying to distance themselves from being dubbed as a "Sanctuary City".. Here is a website that I found also: http://www.sanctuarycities.info/index.html

Basically, the entire county (Cook) that Chicago is located in is a sanctuary. The Illegals here are utterly fearless. They will go on TV and tell the viewers that they have a right to be here, they pose for pictures in the newspapers- they make no attempt to conceal their identity because they know nothing will happen to them. And unfortunately, they are right.

There's a strong anti-illegal presence in Oklahoma City in particular and in Oklahoma state in general.

Illegals are fleeing at least the Phx area as well.
