Sanctuary Cities

In early 2017, students from the Cornell Legal Research Clinic reviewed existing lists of sanctuary jurisdictions, and prepared description of the criteria for inclusion.

In addition, students compiled a table of published sanctuary jurisdiction rules, excluding informal, verbal, and de facto jurisdictions that are often included in such lists.

  • That table is included below, and updated on an intermittent basis.
