Wikipedia says:
A sanctuary, in its original meaning, is a sacred place, such as a shrine. By the use of such places as a haven, by extension the term has come to be used for any place of safety. This secondary use can be categorized into human sanctuary, a safe place for humans, such as a political sanctuary; and non-human sanctuary, such as an animal or plant sanctuary.
 

Sanctuary Cities, and now Sanctuary Places…  

 Enrique Mora

"Sanctuary" is a term that has definitely been abused for political purposes. The term was originally coined to designate areas which would offer refuge to people who were harassed by groups with different religious beliefs. Another acceptation was for the people fleeing from places at war. 

This is not about racism, but more about classism. We are born within a race, but choose to belong into a class. Immigrants are separated in different classes of individuals mainly depending on their attitudes. Even if they come from the same Country or even the same town, some are good natured and others grow reluctant to behave appropriately and refuse to adopt the rules and laws.  

What some groups in America now want is to set refuges for people who are out of the law. In this case “Sanctuary” is the system to Protect and Enable people who are here illegally. 

Two things need to be done to alleviate these situations. There is a smaller group of people who come here and engage in illegal activities, or abuse our social benefits; thus they do not benefit our Country and should be permanently removed. 

I believe that the great majority of cases are people with a need and desire to perform work that benefits our Country. Their illegality may be a result of their ignorance and/or our ineffective Immigration and Naturalization “Service”. The main beneficiaries of those people’s work are their employers. They are willing to do work that most American people do not want to do.  

One solution could be to have them and their employers pay a fine or a yearly fee, (like the Hondurans and other refugees do), and have them learn the language, which most of them have neglected to learn even after years of being here. Most of these people though, simply are not willing to embrace the culture; which can be another reason for them not to belong in America. 

President (elect) Trump has been restless at picking his team. I hear that Law and Order are a priority and the Immigration system will be strengthened even opposing the Sanctuaries’ concept. Meanwhile, the proponents and defenders of those Sanctuaries should be personally responsible for any negative acts that their protégées may inflict on our society.
