Study Finds No Crime Increase in Cities that Adopted ‘Sanctuary’ Policies, Despite Trump Claims

Nick Miroff, The Washington Post (October 21, 2020)

A Stanford University report did not find a documented increase in crime for cities that implemented “sanctuary” policies.  This seems to contradict the Trump administration’s belief that the “sanctuary” policies would have a negative impact on public safety.  Researcher David K. Hausman made these findings in one of the first attempts to measure this impact by analyzing data on property crime and violent crime.
