That's correct, the US immigration policies on illegals hasn't changed dramatically in the past 100 years as far as I know and certainly not when the Nazi party changed the laws in Germany to target Jews, we can safely toss that wild comparison out.
Assume for a second its all based on the fact that is a "good thing" to do. Good for who? Citizens in CA have to abide by rules, regulations, tax codes etc. They have to buy licenses and insurance and bondings and carry health care - they're citizens, the State and Federal Govt knows who they are and if they don't do these things there are penalties. Citizens sign up for the military (men) and serve jury duty, pay Fed and State income taxes. There are a LOT of things a citizen has to do .... and in return, they get things like Social Security, public schools, social aid like EBT cards, etc etc.
An illegal? They get many of those same citizen benefits ... but they don't have to put anything at all into the system. That's the problem ... and they don't want to become US citizens or they'd work towards it - its easy just to be mexican, live in the US for 35 years, stay loyal to Mexico and yet get all the benefits of living in the US.
That's all true by and large.
So ..... what's the benefit of being a citizen again? Hell I don't want to pay Fed taxes anymore. I don't want to have to pay for car insurance. My son wants to start a lawnmowing business but he has to get a license and insurance to do it and the local illegals? they mow for 1/2 the price with a pushmower in the back of an unlicensed truck because they don't have to buy insurance or licenses. If they get caught? SANCTUARY CITY ..... nothing can be done to them
I'll tell you what I think the core benefit is to a sanctuary city - exploitation. They need those illegals, to exploit that labor force for less money and longer hours. Labor laws don't apply - so they can work them like dogs in the fields, building houses etc. That would make sense - they don't want to lose that force, so they shelter and encourage them to stay illegally and against the laws of the country.
