Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, the influential anti-immigration operative who has been involved in both Donald Trump’s border wall policy and the immigration case currently before the Supreme Court, called into question President Obama’s birthplace on his radio program this weekend. In response to a caller who wondered if the Obama administration’s opposition to restrictive voting laws such as a proof-of-citizenship requirement in Kansas is because the president himself is “not a citizen of the United States,” Kobach said that there are “...

Today, as thousands of people gathered in front of the Supreme Court to voice their support of President Obama’s executive actions on immigration, a somewhat smaller crowd organized by Tea Party Patriots held forth against the DAPA/DACA actions and urged the Senate not to confirm President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland. We counted about 20 people at the Tea Party Patriots event at 11 am, shortly before the event’s speeches were scheduled to begin: The heavily outnumbered protesters carried signs saying “#NoHearingsNoVotes,” “#...

Kris Kobach, a former Bush administration attorney who is now the secretary of state of Kansas, helped write Arizona's SB1070, the state's infamous anti-immigrant "show me your papers" law. He helped Alabama craft one of the most disastrous anti-immigrant laws in the U.S. In his home state, Kobach has raised the specter of undocumented immigrants committing voter fraud in an attempt to justify a "proof of citizenship" law that has kept tens of thousands of Kansans from registering to vote. In 2012, he advised Mitt Romney on his infamous "self-deportation... MORE

Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, a prominent endorser of Sen. Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign, warned last month that if the next president allows any sort of path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants living in the United States, “the republic will be lost” because new citizens won’t understand the “responsibility to be properly educated before you vote” and thus will “vote for whoever will give them the most welfare.” Gohmert made the comments in a March 31 interview with Baltimore talk radio hosts Sean Casey and Frank Luber. Casey asked... MORE

Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, who has endorsed Texas Sen. Ted Cruz’s presidential run, said in an interview with Breitbart’s Stephen Bannon yesterday that the success of “anti-establishment candidates” like Cruz and Donald Trump in the Republican primary shows that Republican voters are channeling the spirit of the American Revolution. King attributed the success of Cruz and Trump to frustration that Republican leaders in Congress “haven’t followed through on their promises” to repeal the Affordable Care Act, block executive actions on immigration, or call...

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, who after dropping out of the GOP presidential race started shilling for his former rival Donald Trump, is praising Trump’s “shrewd plan” to make Mexico pay for a border wall by cutting off the money that immigrants send to their families. Huckabee told Newsmax’s Steve Malzberg yesterday that Trump’s plan was “shrewd” and that it is “entirely possible” that it would work. To Trump’s haters, he said: “One thing you have to realize, Donald Trump has been very, very smart in his business... MORE

When Donald Trump suggested this week that he would make Mexico pay for a border wall by threatening to cut off all remittance payments sent by American workers to family members in Mexico, he was echoing years of calls from anti-immigrant politicians like former Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann and Louisiana Sen. David Vitter to punish immigrants who send money to their families. It isn’t exactly a surprise, then, that Rep. Steve King of Iowa, one of the most vocal anti-immigration advocates in Congress, seems fairly supportive of Trump’s plan despite having endorsed Sen.... MORE
