Illegal Immigrant Arrested for Rape:  On June 15, police arrested three Hispanic teenagers for the home invasion and rape of a 23-year-old mother of two.  Worldnetdaily and Fox5 Atlanta report that Josue Aguilar Ramirez, 19, Francisco Palencia, 17, and an unidentified 15-year-old, face charges of kidnapping, rape, aggravated sodomy, and aggravated battery.  Police report that the victim returned home from work with her two small children and found two men wearing ski masks and armed with stun guns in her kitchen.  When she resisted the men doused her with boiling water, tased her, and dragged her into the bedroom where she was sodomized and raped in front of her 4-year-old son.  While the County Sheriff identified Ramirez, the oldest assailant, as an illegal alien with an active immigration hold from ICE, none of the Atlanta area media has bothered to report this.

Crime Drops After Cancelling Sanctuary City:  In 2008 the city of Phoenix, AZ cancelled its sanctuary city status, a year later crime dropped significantly.  William Lajeunesse of FoxNews reports that while pro-sanctuary city advocates claim that refusing to cooperate with ICE helps reduce crime because illegals no longer fear deportation when they report crimes, the experience in Phoenix was just the opposite.  In 2009 the murder rate dropped 27%, Robberies 23%, assault 13%, burglaries 14%.  The rates in these categories dropped in 2010 as well.  A six year study by the University of California Riverside found that while violent crime was slightly higher in sanctuary cities, there was no significant difference in crime rates between them and non-sanctuary cities.
