Kansas views on immigration, Kobach, Huelskamp, tech ed, drones

Immigration – As shown in our local population, the vast majority of immigrants – regardless of their documentation – are hard-working and simply trying to make a living. Many have been difference-makers for employers with hard-to-fill jobs. Lawmakers should acknowledge those economic realities evident in southwest Kansas and beyond. This region’s experience also is proof that the answer isn’t in heavy-handed tactics that pull families apart. Comprehensive reform that blends controls on immigration with strategies to address labor needs makes more sense.
