Kris Kobach’s claims about immigration are based on false statistics – KANSAS CITY STAR

Kansas gubernatorial candidate Kris Kobach recently wrote a guest commentary for The Kansas City Star defending his decision to make illegal immigration a major theme of his campaign. During his announcement in June, the current Kansas secretary of state stated that illegal immigration threatened the state’s budget, wages, and safety.

Unfortunately, despite his 20-year political push against illegal immigrants, most of what Kobach says is completely at odds with reality.
