Immigration Criminalization and the Rise of Sanctuary: The Case of Santa Ana, California

Abstract

Immigration Criminalization and the Rise of Sanctuary: The Case of Santa Ana, California -- Sanctuary cities in the U.S. today encompass a range of different policies and political statements, from symbolic formal declarations of municipal leaders’ support for their undocumented residents to more concrete policy ordinances such as the refusal to utilize local resources in federal enforcement efforts. The current restrictive environment for immigrants, set forth by the Trump administration, but also based on decades of increased criminalization of immigrants, has caused a pushback by local movements, particularly in regards to local policing and the movement of the border beyond its physical presence. These local actors can, at times, take advantage of a “niche-opening”1 for public support and an “interstitial”2 policy gap that allows them to mobilize and push for reforms at the city level.
