Poll: 74 Percent of Californians Want to End Sanctuary Cities

The vast majority of residents living in California would like to see sanctuary cities barred, a state home to multiple jurisdictions which refuse to abide by federal immigration laws.

Roughly 74 percent of California residents want to see an end to sanctuary city policies, according to a poll by UC Berkeley.

The issue to end sanctuary cities in the state crosses racial and party lines, with 65 percent of Hispanics registering their agreement, while 70 percent of independents, 82 percent of Republicans, and 73 percent of Democrats feel the same.

During President Donald Trump’s term, sanctuary cities could see a cut in federal funding and pushback from the Department of Justice under likely Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Cool!? Was this a BREITBARF run poll?

Or let us read more from the UC.

The online survey, which polled 1,098 California residents from Aug. 11-26, found that 74 percent of respondents said local authorities should not be able to ignore a federal request to hold a detained person who is in the country illegally. Only 26 percent of respondents said local authorities should have that right.

This came from a poll over a shooting! FFS!

A jailed San Franciso illegal and soon after shot and killed a woman.

Poll: 74 Percent of Californians Want to End Sanctuary Cities
I'm having a hard time finding this poll. Your link is to Breitbart. The Breitbart story links to a story in the San Diego Union Tribune. THAT story has no link, but mentions an IGS-UC Berkeley Poll.

So I searched for IGS-UC Berkeley, and it links to some polls. The first one listed was this page: http://www.field.com/fieldpollonline/subscribers/Rls2430.pdf
This is a field poll, and it's from 2012. It doesn't mention sanctuary cities.

The IGS-UC Berkeley site also links to some of its own polls, here: https://escholarship.org/uc/search?entity=igs_poll None of these polls deals with immigration, however.

Can anyone help me out? Can we track down this polls to its source? I'm stumped.

Mr. Rasselas,

Sorry that Google doesn't work for you in the cave in which you live. I typed in "UC Berkeley poll on immigration," and this is the first thing that came up:

Having a chance to look at Mr. Snark's link, I have two observations/questions. The first is whether there was any attempt at a random sampling. The link says it used an "on line poll," which suggests to me that respondents were self-selected rather than randomly sampled, so that's kind of a big deal. I see nothing about how the respondents were connected to the poll.

Second, here's the exact (and only) question they were asked:
Do you believe that local authorities should be able to ignore a federal request to hold an illegal immigrant who has been detained?

Yes, local authorities should be able to ignore these federal requests.
No, local authorities should not be able to ignore these federal requests.
The situation shows in the "Yes" response is current California law. It would be interesting for these same people to be asked if California should change the law to require cities to hold prisoners. That isn't quite the same question.

Interesting results, but I'd still like to know how they were derived so that we can see if they are valid.

And that question says nothing about "sanctuary cities".
