The Sanctuary Movement: How Broken Immigration Policies Affect Cities by Kyle W. Bell

indie ebook cover

The current debate over immigration policy in the United States divides political parties and individuals alike. Both sides would agree that the immigration system is broken. Evidence of this systematic failure is glaring: there are twelve million undocumented immigrants living in the United States, the federal government lacks a comprehensive enforcement and naturalization strategy, and sanctuary cities have been created to protect undocumented immigrants from deportation.

Cities such as Chicago and San Francisco have limited ability to deal with immigration issues, yet have acted to protect their citizens from deportation. By providing services to undocumented residents, cities have been forced to live with the consequences of an inadequate federal response to an issue that the Constitution delegates to the federal government. With a more sensible immigration strategy in place, there would be no need for sanctuary cities.

This book explores the sanctuary city movement in detail. First, we will look at the life of an undocumented immigrant that came to America and now lives in a sanctuary city. Next, we will explore the history of immigration in the United States, how federal policy has changed over time, and how cities have responded to these changes. Finally, we will consider two examples of sanctuary cities: Chicago and San Francisco.

About The Author...

indie author

Kyle W. Bell

      

Kyle W. Bell is a Political Science Major at Indiana University South Bend. He calls South Bend, Indiana his home, where he was born and raised. He has always been an avid writer, perhaps explaining why he owns and manages three separate websites, each of them dedicated to different subjects. At the tender age of twenty-two, Kyle likes to think that his youth gives him the freedom to write openly and refrain from being overly cynical. Most of his writing deals with current events, video games and politics.

Kyle's main interests include writing, reading books, working on his websites, keeping tabs on the news, watching sports and being with both friends and family. In 2003, he founded the video game news and review website Game Freaks 365. His interest in politics drove him to create KyleBell.com in 2007, a political blog meant to generate ideas and debate on policy, as well as current events. In March 2008, he founded a third website, Movie Freaks 365.

Writing allowed Kyle to pursue academic opportunities. He is the recipient of the Indiana Black Expo's Martin Luther King Junior Award. It was won in an essay contest in 2002 writing about the perils of racial profiling in the wake of 9/11. The following year he was awarded with the Presidential Award for excellence in education. Kyle's writing on sports development was included in the 2011 edition of Indiana University South Bend's Undergraduate Research Journal.
