Kobach aims to drive out migrants living in Kansas illegally

Kris Kobach highlights his national reputation as an immigration crusader in running for Kansas governor by promising voters that if he’s elected he’ll work to drive out illegal immigrants to halt what
he says is the $377 million in benefits provided to them by the state each year. He's using alternative facts.

Fact check: His figure for what Kansas could save annually comes from a September 2017 report by the Federation for American Immigration Reform. "The Fiscal Burden of
Illegal Immigration" The Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) is an anti-immigration group that has been branded a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center

Let's continue:
Kobach wants Kansas to catch up to others including Missouri,
Alabama and Arizona in setting policies designed to prevent immigrants living in the U.S. from getting jobs or obtaining benefits. Kobach has falsely described Kansas as the “sanctuary state of the Midwest.
The total of illegal immigrants living in KS is between 2.2% and 2.9 %
of Kansas’ population. In short, much of the spending is for services a state can’t avoid unless immigrants are deported or leave voluntarily." DING DING DING
His plan: seek the repeal of a 2004 law that helps young people living in Kansas illegally to go to state colleges by
allowing them to pay the lower tuition rates reserved for legal state residents.
Pursue legislation that would cut off state funding to cities and counties that restrict law enforcement cooperation with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement or offer sanctuary to illegal
immigrants.
Issue an EO requiring state agencies and their contractors to use the e-Verify system to check workers’ legal status
In other words, lock down the state of KS who's farms will lose out big due to lack of workers.
