CRIME RATES OF SANCTUARY CITIES VS. NEARBY NON-SANCTUARY CITIES
Below is a list of some of the Sanctuary Cities in the United States and their crime rates. Right beside the city, is the nearest large city which is a Non-Sanctuary City and it’s crime rate. Both are stats are taken from NeighborhoodScout.com which is a site used for people who want to move anywhere in the United States and evaluate the location they might choose.
It includes many statistics besides crime, including schools, lifestyle, population breakdown and more. These stats are from government websites filtered to the neighborhood.
Crime stats are from the FBI and are unbiased as the site is not a politically motivated website. It is merely an informational site. Stats are per 1,000 residents within the criteria selected and can filtered as to your own criteria. As you read the stats, you’ll also notice the Crime Index in green. If the number is higher, the city is safer.
As you look through the chart, you’ll find it is in direct contradiction to a story by Newsmax and also MotherJones which is cited by Newsmax. Apparently, truth in reporting is something waning for both of these online publications.
For this report, I only dealt with crime stats as the criteria. It is also important to note, NeighborhoodScout.com is not a political website in any way.
