Perhaps, How many do you require for it to be a good thing?

Would be interested to see evidence that sanctuary policies have resulted in reduced rates of sexual assault. My sense would be that such a connection is unlikely.

Crime is statistically significantly lower in sanctuary counties compared to nonsanctuary counties. Crime is defined here as the total number of violent crimes—murders, rapes, robberies, and assaults—and property crimes—burglaries, larceny, motor vehicle thefts, and arsons—per 10,000 people. The data indicate that crime is statistically significantly lower in sanctuary counties in large central metro counties, small metro counties, micropolitan counties, and noncore, rural counties. Large central metro counties show the most pronounced difference. Large central metro sanctuary counties have 65.4 crimes fewer per 10,000 people than large central metro nonsanctuary counties.

Perhaps more importantly, the results of the CEM analysis show that crime is statistically significantly lower in sanctuary counties compared to nonsanctuary counties when statistically matching and then controlling for population characteristics, including total population and the foreign-born percentage of the population. The results of the CEM analysis show that there are, on average, 35.5 fewer crimes per 10,000 people in sanctuary counties—a result that is highly statistically significant.
BTW, got that via NPR: https://www.npr.org/sections/codeswi...ties-are-safer . No wonder Trump and henchmen want to get rid of them too.

The link doesn't seem to make it clear whether the lower crime rates were pre-existing, or are the result of sanctuary policies.

If the claim had been the opposite(crime rates are higher in sanctuary cities/counties/states) would you ask this question?

Is actual crime itself down, or just reporting of it?

It has to be noticed that you are still going for a straw man of what iiandyiiii really said. In essence, he mentioned how it is better to keep crime down rather than wasting a lot of money in deporting lots of parents or relatives of kids and young people that are American. Not that the crime rate changed from the past.

So your demand here is a bit irrelevant and following a lot of mistaken or misleading talking points from the right, I made my reply directing it to the big lie made by Trump and henchmen. That lie that goes as 'crime increased when a city becomes a sanctuary'. As studies did show, that was a big lie from right wing sources.

Mind you, in the past, other researchers found no significant increase in the crime rates of cities that became sanctuaries; as Trump and his bigots insisted and continue to insist.

Since then, public scrutiny of sanctuary cities has grown. For example, Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry stated that sanctuary cities “allow illegals to commit crimes, then roam free in our communities,” citing Los Angeles’s spike in crime in 2015 as evidence.

But is really true? Despite popular accounts, decades of research actually shows that immigrants – whether legal or illegal – tend to have lower crime rates.

Now, our new research shows that designating a city as a sanctuary has no statistically significant effect on crime.
The more recent research I linked to actually points that there is a significant difference, and it remains contrary to what Trump and others say.

The data are clear: Crime is statistically significantly lower in sanctuary counties compared to nonsanctuary counties. Moreover, economies are stronger in sanctuary counties—from higher median household income, less poverty, and less reliance on public assistance to higher labor force participation, higher employment-to-population ratios, and lower unemployment.

Same question for those claiming that the crime rate in sanctuary cities is going up, right?
