Kansas Secretary of State Calls Court Ruling On Arizona Law a "Victory"


Kobach filingSecretary of State Kris Kobach speaking to reporters earlier this month. (Photo by Stephen Koranda)Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach called today’s (MON) Supreme Court ruling on an Arizona immigration law a victory.  The court let stand a provision of the law that requires officers to check the immigration status of people they suspect to be in the country illegally.  Kobach helped craft that Arizona law.  He says the high court’s decision now gives other states the green light to pursue similar policies in their own states. But the court struck down other provisions of the law.  Gary Brunk, with the ACLU of Kansas and Western Missouri, said striking down most of the law should make legislators in Kansas and other states wary.

The Supreme Court struck down parts of the law requiring all immigrants to carry registration papers.
