Stand With Arizona

Kris Kobach, architect of Arizona's landmark S.B. 1070 and Kansas Secretary of State, brought needed common sense to the CPAC Conference discussion on immigration.

Following remarks by Alex Nowrasteh, a policy analyst at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, in which he denounced E-Verify and claimed - to boos from the audience - that "free market conservatives" should allow employers to hire illegal aliens (see synopsis here), it was Kobach's turn to restore sanity.

First Mr. Kobach laid out the concept of "attrition through enforcement" with a simple analogy. He then laid out how Arizona and Alabama benefitted immensely from their respective immigration crackdowns. Kobach covered the stunning drop in Alabama unemployment (which you can examine in detail in our report HERE), and also how Arizona has seen a huge amount of illegals "self-deporting", and how it has resulted in school budget surpluses of $50 million, among other benefits.

Kobach brought the crowd to its feet with the last line of his comments.

A humorous aside: the "Occupy" crowd, which has allied itself with open borders fanatics like MALDEF and LULAC, unfurled a huge protest banner against Kris Kobach. Only one problem - they were in the WRONG ROOM. As Hans von Spakovsky of National Review recalled it...

Kobach’s panel was going on elsewhere in the hotel and he was not on the panel that David Keene was moderating or the one that was about to start. When Keene told the protesters that, everyone in the room started laughing at them and they sheepishly folded up their banner and left. They apparently never made it to the actual room where Kobach was speaking.

Pew research estimates that 10,000 baby boomers are retiring everyday. That means a lot of people should be finding work, but most companies are simply eliminating the position when they can in order to deal with the growing regulatory burden.

Also, a good many of the college grads applying for jobs have no experience at even punching a clock and lack the basic skills necessary to be productive in the business world.

TOPEKA — Kansas business groups asked legislators Monday to set up a program for placing illegal immigrants in hard-to-fill jobs in agriculture and other industries as a House committee kicked off a week of hearings that are likely to highlight divisions among majority Republicans.
