"I've heard this before, and, just to be clear, there's no social science to support your position on that," Carlson said. "There are no actual studies that show a sanctuary city is safer. Sorry."

Alex did not let that comment go unchallenged.

"I disagree with you, Tucker," Alex responded.

Tucker tried to have the last word.

"There's no disagreement -- there haven't been studies done on that that show it," Tucker said.

Alex did not cower as he responded. More importantly, in addition to pointing out the increased safety of these cities, he included some economic realities.

"Let me just correct you there," Alex said.  "I can talk about it right now. The most comprehensive study to date is the University of California study done by Ted Wong. It basically looked at sanctuary cities across the country, and it said that there are 35.5 fewer crimes committed per 10,000 in sanctuary cities than non-sanctuary cities. It also said it's even better in smaller municipalities. And, importantly, sanctuary cities have stronger economies, lower poverty rates, lower uninsured rates --"

Tucker
had no comeback, so he had to resort to the connection, causation, and speculation argument. Of course, Republicans usually depend on much less as corroboration of their ill-advised policies.

Tucker Carlson falls apart as guest confronts him with university study on sanctuary cities  ;D

Rob not the poor, because he is poor: neither oppress the afflicted in the gate:
For the Lord will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them. Pr. 22:22-23
