Exclusive – Kobach: It’s Time to Stop Abusing the Temporary Protected Status Law

Earlier this week, the acting Secretary of Homeland Security, Elaine Duke, made a bad decision — a really bad decision. She refused to end the “temporary protected status” (TPS) of approximately 57,000 Honduran nationals who would otherwise be considered illegal aliens. Instead she extended their permission to continue living in the United States for another six months.

Exclusive – Kobach: Opponents of Immigration Enforcement Flood the Courts with Baseless Lawsuits

Last week, the City of San Jose, California, filed a lawsuit against President Trump and his acting secretary of homeland security, in an attempt to stop the Trump Administration from rescinding President Obama’s illegal executive amnesty known as “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals” (or “DACA”).

Kobach: Why Taking a Knee During the National Anthem Is Not Only Unpatriotic, It’s Ignorant

The act of NFL players taking a knee during the National Anthem has gone from being a stunt to a plague that is infecting the whole league. When NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell responded to President Trump’s criticism by defending the players, he showed that he not only has no clue why NFL viewership is in the tank, he also has no clue what the National Anthem is all about.

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.

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.
