TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) Opponents of immigration policies favored by Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach are calling for his resignation.
A group called the DREAM Act Coalition expects up to 75 people from around the country to join an anti-Kobach rally Tuesday at a Topeka state office building. The DREAM Act would create a citizenship path for residents who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children.
Kobach is a Republican and former law professor at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. He has helped shape immigration policies around the country, and continues to litigate immigration issues in other states while serving in his Kansas position.
The coalition says part of its message to Kobach is that the Republican Party’s views on immigration have alienated Hispanic voters.
