Sanctuary Policies -- Increased Crime

Sanctuary County:
Overall crime in Fairfax County increased by nearly 22 percent for the first quarter 2008 compared to first quarter figures from last year.

Overall, property crimes, including burglary, larceny and car theft increased 24 percent, echoing “what appears to be happening in other localities in the region,” police said.
County Without Sanctuary:
Recently, Prince William County reported a 19.3 percent decline in crime, with chairman of the Board of County Supervisors Corey Stewart attributing the downturn to the hard line the county has taken toward illegal immigrants.
