Liberals and illegals are having a cow after Donald Trump appointed Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach to head his immigration policy transition team. Kobach is the author of Arizona’s infamous SB 1070 bill, considered by many to be the toughest immigration bill to be passed by any state. Kobach is a hardliner against illegal immigration.
“I’m a member of the immigration policy transition team, and there’s going to be a lot to do there, in part because Mr. Trump and Mr. Obama are diametrical opposites when it comes to immigration policy, so there will be a lot of changes.”
Kobach is a fierce opponent of deferred deportations and amnesty.
According to The Washington Post,
“He has helped shepherd dozens of restrictive (illegal) immigration measures at the state and local levels across the country and is known for his affiliation with the Immigration Reform Law Institute.”
Kobach has had a key role in lawsuits opposing Obama’s illegal amnesty schemes and would be the biggest nightmare illegals could imagine.
The guy did not play any games about his fierce beliefs, and as a result liberals were in a tizzy whining over his allegedly “extremist” views, with the leftists at the Daily Kos blog going so far as to accuse him of having authored America’s “racist law.”
Except that there was nothing remotely racist about SB 1070, which did nothing more than grant police officers the right to question a suspect’s immigration status. Considering how many illegal immigrants were hiding out in Arizona, the law seemed plenty fair.
The fact is that Kobach is neither a racist nor an extremist; he is a man who believes in the law — namely the law that says it is illegal and thus a criminal act for a foreign citizen to cross over into America without proper permission.
