Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach recently said on his KCMO Radio show that it “really annoys” him that Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents don’t pick up and deport any undocumented people among the protesters at Donald Trump events. He added that whenever the Legislature considers repealing the 2004 law enabling certain undocumented graduates of Kansas high schools to pay in-state tuition rates at state colleges, “illegal aliens will show up and testify. ICE never turns up and says, ‘OK, you’re breaking the law, time to get out of here.’ You get Democrats applauding them. It’s just unbelievable. At some point, we’ve got to say, ‘Look, we take our laws seriously,’ and I don’t think that’s going to happen until Donald Trump is president.” – Rhonda Holman
