1* Many communities in the United States have declared themselves sanctuaries for illegal immigrants, refusing to cooperate with federal immigration authorities. Do you favor or oppose the community you live in declaring itself a sanctuary community?


2* Generally speaking, are sanctuary communities more safe or less safe than communities that do not protect illegal immigrants from federal authorities? Or is the level of safety about the same?


3* A proposal has been made to send illegal immigrants captured by federal immigration authorities to these welcoming sanctuary communities. Do you favor or oppose sending illegal immigrants to sanctuary communities?
