If you had a friend that committed a violent crime, and you helped that friend avoid law enforcement, you are guilty of harboring, or aiding and abetting a fugitive. Charged with either a felony or misdemeanor, you could be facing fines and/or imprisonment for your crime. The best solution for you and your friend, possibly, would be to relocate to a sanctuary city – a place like New York, San Francisco, or any other city deemed a safe haven.
But here’s a revelation: there are no sanctuary cities for natural-born U.S. citizens. They don’t exist; and honestly, the thought of such a concept is completely preposterous.
So, why does the United States offer safe havens to violent criminal offenders that are illegally living in the United States?
