With any such stat it is the same image. The most populated areas control most of the elections...state wide and nationally, while the stats show those same areas have the biggest problems...from taxes to crime.

RNG cannot figure this out. 2 sets of data from 2 different sources.

It is taxing for RNG to keep up.. he still thinks the Dow is crashed to 22000 a week or 2 ago.

It's a self-labelled "meme site". And no where does your link say it is a map released by the DOJ.

You made Jesus cry again, didn't you?
no the site that displayed the image is a meme.. The data is correct.. you see you cannot tell the difference between the source of data and the messenger displaying the data.

First of all, there's hardly any data

There are lots of issues around studies of the crime rates in sanctuary vs. non-sanctuary cities:

"No Evidence Sanctuary Cities ‘Breed Crime’
"By Robert Farley
"Posted on February 10, 2017

"In a pre-Super Bowl interview on Fox, President Donald Trump claimed sanctuary cities “breed crime.” But limited research on the effect of such policies has found no evidence that they lead to overall increases in crime rates.

"U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement documented nearly 2,000 cases in which cities with sanctuary policies refused to honor ICE detainers, and unauthorized immigrants then went on to commit crimes. But some law enforcement officials say that in the big picture, sanctuary policies also can help to reduce crime."

(My emphasis - more @ the URL - https://www.factcheck.org/2017/02/no-evidence-sanctuary-cities-breed-crime/)

There are problems of definition - There's no common agreement as to what is a sanctuary city. The policies of sanctuary cities also vary - there's no agreement there, either. So the methodology for a good study of the subject simply isn't in place.

Immigrants to the US are typically here to work. & so they avoid contact with law enforcement. & some studies indicate that violence in immigrant communities is less than that in non-immigrant communities. (See the last 2 or 3 paras of the article above.)
