Reader has questions about illegal aliens

As stated in a recent media article the following thoughts come to mind.

So illegal aliens are now protected in this state and county, which raises some questions now based on the fact that just because a person resides in this state does not qualify or establish them as a citizen of this state or this country. With that said.

Question: If city, county, state patrol etc (law enforcement) cannot question or detain a suspected illegal alien in this state then who has that authority? It would appear that only the border patrol or the immigration service has that authority to arrest and detain illegal aliens in this country and state.

Question: With these two agencies being located some distance from Kitsap County then how is law enforcement going to have the people remain in place for these two agencies to arrive and question them about their status in this country? This leads me to believe that they can walk away and nobody can do anything about it. It also tells me that the ACLU is promoting violations of the law, the constitution, and inviting illegal aliens to this state because they will be protected by the ACLU here and allowed to suck as many benefits as possible from the taxpayers.

It certainly appears that the ACLU is doing everything it can to protect enemies of this county within the United States and illegal aliens within the United States while leading this country into financial ruin for being required to support these government free loaders.
