List of 'sanctuary' cities 2017

(KGTV)--According to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, California has the fourth most counties and second most cities considered to have adopted laws, policies or practices that may impede some immigration enforcement efforts. 

The state of Oregon has the most, with 31 counties, followed by Washington (18), Pennsylvania (16) and California (15). 

Massachusetts has the most cities considered to be "sanctuary," and California follows with three. 

San Diego County curiously made the list one week but was absent the next, according to a report by the San Diego Union-Tribune
