Kansas Irish to go home?
Kris Kobach pops up again in a Kansas discussion of the national immigration question. The Hutchinson News refers to the recent southwest Kansas rallies in Dodge City, Garden City and Liberal, and notes that the public response outside the immigrant community has largely been muted. Kris says this is because people are afraid of being called racist.
U.S. citizens are not racist, said Kobach, who favors removal of the illegal immigrants here by cracking down on those who employ them via strict enforcement of existing laws. The pro-enforcement movement is in no way xenophobicClaiming it's not a movement against immigrants, Kobach says it's against illegal aliens and the violation of law.
Should he not then be campaigning for all Irish in Kansas who became legal through the Morrison visa program in the 1990s to go home for their previous illegality and violation of the law? The white Irish people that is. You can read a history of the Morrison Visa here
