TOPEKA With protesters chanting and pounding drums outside the Capitol, Secretary of State Kris Kobach, one of the nations most prominent advocates of illegal immigration crackdowns, urged lawmakers Wednesday to force employers and law enforcement officers to help chase off illegal immigrants. Theres no question that if a state passes laws to discourage illegal immigration
then you will see some self-deportation, Kobach told the House State and Federal Affairs Committee. The protesters outside said those laws are more likely to produce discrimination, worker shortages and costly lawsuits. If Mr. Kobach, who is promoting, not only here in Kansas but all over the country, laws that are separating our families, that are leaving children without their parents, and theyre hurting everyone in our community, we will not stand for that, Sulma Arias, executive director of Sunflower Community Action, told more than 300 people at the south steps of the Statehouse. Lawmakers are considering a raft of controversial immigration-focused bills this week, several of which have failed in recent years.

It also serves them quite well to have lack of law enforcement.Most Illegals only report crimes, when it will benefit them.
separating our families, that are leaving children without their parents, and theyre hurting everyone in our community, we will not stand for that,..ohhhhhhh i'm scared..
Pounding drums? Why, to prove that they aren’t serious? We already knew that.
If these illegal alien parents leave their children behind instead of taking them back home with them, south of the river, we can open up orphanages for them. It's a shame if those parents care so little for their children that they would leave them behind, then they never belonged with their children in the first place.
Me thinks that these are mere hollow threats intended to scare lawmakers from voting the removal of illegal aliens for fear we would have numbers of children roaming the streets, homeless.
FAIRs 2010 study, The Fiscal Burden of Illegal Immigration on United States Taxpayers estimated at $442 million the annual state and local fiscal costs borne by Kansas taxpayers resulting from an estimated 70,000 illegal aliens and 13,700 of their U.S.-born children.
Uh, huh and I have two sons-in-law, one who lost his job in landscaping to illegal aliens and another in construction that can hardly get or keep a job, not because KS is doing construction but because the employers would rather hire illegals (KS is a right-to-work state so the citizens aren't losing because of high union labor - no it's because of cheap illegal labor!!!)
When foreigners stop believing it's a “privilege” to be allowed in the US legally, and start to declare/demand that it's their “right” to come and/or remain in the US illegally.
The "police" often cited by pro-illegals are almost always the politically appointed commissioners, chief, etc.. They are merely parroting the party line from a politician boss who's selling out the country for both votes and the federal subsidies to illegals and their families that flow into their locality.
