Report: When Mr. Kobach Comes to Town ( .PDF )

— A new Southern Poverty Law Center report criticizing attempts by states and cities to crack down on illegal immigration focuses on the new Kansas secretary of state, Kris Kobach.

Kobach returned the criticism, telling The Associate Press on Monday night the report is a “hit piece.”

The report released Monday is titled in part, “When Mr. Kobach Comes to Town.”

Kobach is a Republican Kansas City-area law professor who has advised cities and states on how to attack illegal immigration. He helped to draft a controversial immigration law that Arizona enacted last year.

The report by the Alabama-based Southern Poverty Law Center argues that such policies spark expensive court fights and are damaging to communities.

Kobach said that the report greatly exaggerates the legal costs for communities and is filled with misinformation.

Kobach also helped with the Arizona law that made ethnic study courses illegal. He has not encouraged the development of working visa programs that really would impact illegal immigration. Almost every first world country have better working visa programs (for temporary workers in agriculture, etc) then we do. Working visa programs help stem illegal workers, help profile illegal jobs, help spotlight industries that thrive on illegal workers and help protect abused workers. Working visa programs are not supported by cash cows, corporate and industrial mob bosses.

Pigvommit - I can assure you that Kobach doesn't care about Bob, you, or me. He cares about making a name for himself through legal grandstanding predicated on hate mongering. He's not really that different than Fred Phelps...different message, a little more polish, and he hasn't been disbarred...yet. Otherwise, they're pretty close.

pigballin....

Ease up on the cough syrup, okay? It's medicine, not a substitute for when Daddy remembers to lock the liquor cabinet. Try posting sober for a change, you'd be surprised how much more respectful you come across.

No wonder you're mad at MADD...

It is disgusting to read posts by any citizen that posts comments supporting illegal immigration.

Do any of you understand how this issue affects your future financially ? Don't be so blind to facts. You are just being political.

This group out of Atlanta is just another race card scum bag outfit trying to and making money off race issues for monetary gain only..In the same boat as the Al Sharptons and Jessie Jackson's.

A black minister in Atlanta said that these Sharptons and Jacksons were not elected to represent their behalf..But the left wing plays to these groups only and ignores the voice of the other black side.

SPLC is the reason there isn't an effective KKK anymore. I saw it on History.com Because of a hanging in Mobile, AL in the late 1970's the mother of the victim sued the KKK out of it's headquarters somewhere in Alabama. Nice to know the brainiacs in this state outside of Lawrence elect a person being tracked by a law group that tracks racists. Nice on you rural Kansas voters. Thanks for making the rest of us have to apologize for your briliant shows of intelligence.

"and is filled with misinformation."

If that's really the case, then why the antipathy? That would merely make Kobach and the SPLC brethren in misinformation.

Prop values in CA having nothing to do with every lib whim made into law driving business, including the film industry running like a scalded dog to states like Arizona and Nevada.

Prop values in CA have nothing to do with the very very generous welfare programs.

Compared to bailing out California, which we all will do, a few pesky lawsuits are nothing. If any legal action is needed at all.

I wonder if we have to pay for Babs Pelosi's 500 buck a bottle Merlot wine habit, or CA cops driving Caddies.

Years and years of Californians mocking us hicks and we hayseeds are going to pay for the sins.

Any of you know what knocked California for such a loop. Illegal immigration mi amigos.

SDTPlant, Look at the SPLC "Hate Map". They are tracking WBC.
Also notice that if you correlate red States and blue States with their "Hate Map" , and throw out Texas as an outlier, then the the greatest concentration of hate groups are in the blue states. Weird huh?

Good! They didn't need him in AZ and we don't need him here. Too bad there are so many good ol boys here in KS who fail to see the issues as they really are. What we don't need are sick, ignorant, (other than the rednecks) citizens. It's going to come back to bite all of you!

While you're tracking him SPLC, I hope you have the Phelpses on your radar screen.

I totally agree! He gets paid, and leaves the city with the bills because what he helps write into law does not hold up.
