Exclusive – Kobach: It’s Time to Stop Sanctuary Cities and Counties

On Wednesday in Miami, Attorney General Jeff Sessions praised the recent decision of Miami-Dade County to end its sanctuary policy. At the same time, he criticized Chicago’s sanctuary policy and its filing of a federal lawsuit against the Justice Department in the wake of the Department’s denial of federal law enforcement grants to sanctuary jurisdictions.

Kris Kobach: RAISE Act Won’t Pass Unless Republicans Feel Heat from the Base

Kansas Secretary of State and Vice Chair of the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity Kris Kobach spoke with Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM host Alex Marlow on Friday regarding the Reforming American Immigration for a Strong Economy (“RAISE”) Act and its potential impact on America’s immigration system.

Tancredo: Why Are Democrats Intent on Sabotaging the President’s Election Integrity Commission?

President Trump’s vote fraud commission launched on May 11 by executive order has generated an avalanche of hysterical outrage from the left and lawsuits by the ACLU and several leftist groups seeking to declare its very existence illegitimate. Listening to the allegations hurled against the commission and its vice chairman, Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, you would think it is plotting to repeal the Voting Rights Act or the 15th Amendment.

Exclusive – Kobach: The Immigration System Needs to Protect American Workers and Taxpayers

On Wednesday, President Trump used the bully pulpit to call on Congress to pass the Reforming American Immigration for a Strong Economy (“RAISE”) Act, sponsored by Senators Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) and David Perdue (R-Ga.). The RAISE Act would shift our legal immigration system away from admitting unskilled immigrants toward admitting highly skilled immigrants, end the diversity visa lottery, reduce the total number of green cards from over a million to about 500,000 per year, and require sponsors of immigrants seeking to become U.S. citizens to reimburse the federal government for welfare benefits the immigrants received. All of these reforms are badly needed.

Kobach: A Victory for Public Information

On Tuesday, the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia and the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida denied temporary restraining orders (TROs) sought by the ACLU, the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, and others. The plaintiffs were attempting to prevent the Presidential Commission on Election Integrity, of which I am Vice-Chair, from having its first meeting on Wednesday in Washington, D.C.

Election Watchdog Group Slams California for Denying Voter Data to Commission

The Election Integrity Project (EIP), a California-based volunteer organization that aims to increase transparency in the voting process, has slammed a decision by California Secretary of State Alex Padilla to refuse to cooperate with President Donald Trump’s Commission on Election Integrity in its efforts to investigate claims of voter fraud.

Kobach – Refugees and Terrorism: A Massive Vulnerability in Our Immigration System

The left-leaning Ninth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals recently ruled against the Trump Administration’s “travel ban” and kept in place the preliminary injunction that prevents President Trump’s executive order from going into effect. In a classic case of judicial activism, the three Clinton-appointed judges declared that the president’s order “does not offer a sufficient justification” to satisfy them. Never mind that the relevant statute does not require the president to satisfy federal judges (or anyone else, for that matter) that his decision is a good one.

Immigration Officials Fail to Track Illegal Voting Rates, Say Reports

The federal agency which “oversees lawful immigration to the United States,” U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) does not track and retain the answers by legal noncitizen residents whether they have illegally voted or registered to vote. Furthermore, if they vote illegally or are even convicted of illegally voting, this does not necessarily disqualify them from becoming a citizen.
