Kris Kobach, one of the harshest anti-immigration extremists in the country is now advising the president-elect
Trump wastes little time envisioning America as a racist dungeon
While Donald Trump practices playing president, offering rote conciliatory messages to his defeated opponent (a “smart, tough lady”) and his White House predecessor (a “good man”), the divisive president-elect is swiftly surrounding himself with a basket of deplorable immigration hard-liners and alt-right activists as he prepares his move to Washington. Trump may be a blank slate himself when it comes to policy, but the team of advisers and rumored cabinet appointees he is assembling suggests that the racist police state Trump envisioned during his campaign—nationwide stop-and-frisk, systematic Mosque surveillance, institutionalized racial profiling—may soon become a terrifying reality.
The latest extremist to join Trump’s transition team is Kansas secretary of state Kris Kobach, The Washington Post reports. Described by critics as an “anti-immigrant zealot” and beloved by “far-right nativists,” Kobach has been among the loudest voices in the anti-immigration movement. He was influential in the enactment of Arizona’s controversial SB 1070 law, which authorizes police to demand papers proving citizenship or immigration status from anyone they suspect of being in the country illegally. According to the American Civil Liberties Union, “Laws inspired by Arizona's SB 1070 invite rampant racial profiling against Latinos, Asian-Americans and others presumed to be ‘foreign’ based on how they look or sound.”
And that’s not the only strict immigration legislation that Kobach has helped write. “Whenever you see a state or municipality pass a really restrictive immigration policy or a very restrictive voting requirement, there’s a good chance that Kobach was somehow involved,” Miranda Blue, a research editor for People for the American Way, told Salon. And there will likely be plenty of opportunities for Kobach to be involved in the incoming Trump administration. “There’s going to be a lot to do there, in part because Mr. Trump and Mr. Obama are diametric opposites when it comes to immigration policy, so there will be a lot of changes,” Kobach told the Kansas television station KWCH.
Kobach, who favors requiring photo ID to vote, also takes credit for Trump’s plan to force Mexico to foot the bill for the border wall he has promised to build. “There’s no question the wall is going to get built,” the politician told KWCH. “The only question is how quickly will it get done and who pays for it.”
Do leftists even know why we have to live in a fucking police state? If we didn't have half the fucking third-world constantly trying to invade us, or if domestic niggers weren't constantly setting things on fire because some dead nig supposedly dindu nuffin, we wouldn't need such a draconian police state in the first place. Hell, we accept having our genitals fondled at the airport because these same dumb leftist cunts want Muslims to live in our country.
