In a weeklong sweep U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement took close to 1,300 illegal aliens into custody, many of whom were arrested in so-called sanctuary cities that harbor illegals and shield them from federal immigration enforcement efforts.

Those who oppose the Left’s open-border agenda can thus be smeared as anti-immigrant, even though conservatives are generally opposed to illegal immigration, not immigration in general. Los Angeles became the first U.S. sanctuary city in 1979, when its police department issued Special Order 40, a...
