Kansas Secretary of State and gubernatorial candidate Kris Kobach says the GOP is the “only party left” in the 2018 midterm elections interested in halting a 7,000-strong migrant caravan headed to the United States-Mexico border.
During an interview with Fox Business‘s Lou Dobbs, Kobach said...
“President Trump has motivated our base,” Kobach said. “And I think also the events happening in Mexico with the caravan are also reminding people that hey, there’s a reason why we elected Donald Trump, there’s a reason why Republicans are the only party left when it comes to enforcing the rule of law on immigration.”...
“If we keep rewarding illegal immigration like this, we shouldn’t be surprised that we continue to see illegal immigration,” Kobach said. “We’ve got to stop rewarding it, we’ve got to stop giving public benefits to illegal aliens. That’s one of the reasons why I’m running for governor in Kansas … we’ve got to stop giving so many millions of dollars in my state to illegal aliens.”
President Trump has threatened Central America with cutting off the more than $500 million in U.S. taxpayer-funded aid that is sent to the region every year, as well as authorizing the deployment of 800 troops to the southern border.
