Pew: 6 in 10 illegals live in 20, mostly 'sanctuary cities'

Pew: 6 in 10 illegals live in 20, mostly 'sanctuary cities': Some 61 percent of the nation's estimated 11 million illegal immigrants live in just 20 major metro areas, virtually all of which are so-called sanctuary cities that block federal authorities from deporting those charged or convicted of other crimes. A Pew Research Center report said that 6.8 million live in the 20 cities, including Los Angeles, Washington, San Francisco, Dallas and New York, all sanctuary cities. Of the 20, Phoenix, Houston and Orlando don't qualify as sanctuary cities, according to the Center for Immigration Studies, which has the most authoritative list.
