why big government is not a good thing
There is a very strong correlation between the Democratic control of a city and the strength of the public-sector contracts. Consequently, cities and states with a long history of control by the Democratic Party have the most debt. These are also New York, Illinois, and California. The areas are all sanctuaries for illegal immigration. As I have shown here before, it is the public-sector unions and their Democratic leaders who promote illegal immigration to achieve electoral security and save public-sector union jobs. This theory is support by the fact that urban areas controlled by Democrats now have both the highest rates of illegal immigration and the highest unfunded pension liabilities. It then follows that the cost of amnesty, which comprises legacy costs of sanctuary policy, would be highest for these communities.
