WICHITA, Kan. - Secretary of State Kris Kobach has an agenda. That agenda consists of creating road blocks to legitimate voters within the state of Kansas and the creation of racial profiling bills targeting Hispanics. Secretary Kobach's status as an illegal immigration super hero and GOP voter suppression rock star are side gigs that Kansas citizens can ill afford to fund during this time of budgetary crises. A less elaborate Missouri Voter ID bill was budgeted at a cost $14 million in three years time.
While Kobach's immigration legislation was tabled in the committee process, we anticipate seeing the re-emergence of this through the use of dubious back door legislative maneuverings via Rep Lance Kinzer either this session or next. The state of Kansas cannot afford the expensive court cases that the passage of this legislation would surely guarantee.
Kris Kobach turns 45 this Saturday and The Sedgwick County Democratic Party can see no better way to celebrate this milestone with a celebration of Hispanic culture.
