Kris Kobach wrote Alabama immigration law in a turkey blind

  • The Anti-Illegal Bot 2000 needs neither sleep nor food.

Confirmed: Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach is a robot. The final piece of evidence to prove this commonly held belief came into place last week in a piece from Politico about Kobach's theory that stiff anti-illegal-immigration bills will become common.

Politico summarizes Alabama's recently adopted Kobach-penned "Arizona-style" immigration bill this way:

Alabama will require police officers to determine the

citizenship and immigration status in any lawful "stop, detention or

arrest" if there is a "reasonable suspicion" they are illegal. The new

law also forbids undocumented immigrants from receiving state or local

aid, bars them from public schools and universities, criminalizes hiring

or renting to undocumented aliens and prohibits employers from firing

an employee who is a legal resident if an illegal one is on the payroll."

Where could a guy go to clear his head and write some serious, balls-out anti-illegal-immigrant legislation? A turkey blind, Kobach says.

From the piece:

Kobach said he writes legal briefs on nights and weekends away from his

day job. He drafted the Alabama law, he said, on his laptop while

sitting in a turkey blind near Gardiner, Kan.

"Some politicians golf in their spare time," he said. "I spend mine defending American sovereignty."

We assume they mean "Gardner."

Kobach

calls it "defending American sovereignty." You might call it

methodically exiling and harassing people who are in the country

illegally or simply can't prove they are here legally. Either way,with this, his work to keep illegal immigrants from paying in-state

tuition in California and the ongoing fight over a law in Hazelton,

Pennsylvania, it's clear that the man never sleeps. Robot!
