Kansas Secretary of State Kobach Hails Trump Speech on Immigration

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach says he’s still advising Donald Trump's presidential campaign on immigration issues, and he's hailing Trump's latest speech on immigration.

Kobach says Trump brought up issues like wage suppression caused by illegal immigration that often aren’t included in speeches.

“It was historic in the sense that I can’t remember a president or a presidential candidate in my lifetime giving a speech about immigration with that much detail or that much content in it,” says Kobach.
Kobach supports Trump's call to build a wall along the southern border and get Mexico to pay for it. But even if the U.S. pays for it, Kobach says a wall should be built.
The campaign of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton called Trump’s speech dark and an attempt to “divide communities.”
