Looking Past the Label: An Analysis of the Measures Underlying “Sanctuary Cities”
By James M. Rice

By 2015, more than 90% of th 69,278 removals were convicted criminals. Ultimately, the Administration’s political strategy played a significant role in the declining interior enforcement efforts. In addition, the backlog in immigration courts has prevented the prompt removal of unauthorized immigrants from the United States. According to Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse data, there were roughly 185,000 pending cases in immigration courts in 2008. In 2015, there were over 450,000 pending cases.
