Searching for Sanctuary – ILRC Analysis of US Cities & Counties

12/2016 Immigrant Legal Resource Council Immigrant Legal Resource Council (ILRC) identified seven different types of policies to consider in assessing the extent of local assistance with
immigration enforcement in different jurisdictions. We
used these factors to evaluate the extent to which local
law enforcement agencies offer voluntary assistance to
ICE. Without enacting policies to preserve local
resources and safety for the entire community, regardless
of immigration status, local law enforcement will continue
to be extensively involved in deportations.
