LETTER | Kirkland’s top cop blows it

Editor:

Are we to believe that we are safer by not checking for immigration papers at a time with ISIS waiting around the corner to kill people?  What made her make that decision?  Is it because it would add to their workload, was it because they don’t want the responsibility to help insure our safety, was it because our Council directed her response?  

In any case, I believe they are avoiding what should be their responsibility to keep us safer.
