Have you seen Kris Kobach's resume? Here's an update:

Here are all the jobs anti-immigrant crusader Kris Kobach currently holds:

Kansas Secretary of State - and candidate for Governor

Vice chair of Pence's so-called "Voter Fraud Commission"

(Unofficial) immigration advisor to President Trump

Paid columnist for the white nationalist publication Breitbart News.

Kobach doesn't see a problem with serving as an elected official while being paid by the alt-right website Breitbart as a regular contributor. Two days before Donald Trump's decision to end DACA, Kobach wrote a column for Breitbart titled, "The DACA Amnesty Must Be Ended."

Trump and Sessions clearly read that one.

And it gets worse. Kobach insists that, instead of DACA or a path to citizenship for Dreamers, the solution is to "deport the whole family." Clearly, Kobach has only one objective--and it's stridently anti-immigrant.

Kris Kobach is a walking assault on American values. It's a disgrace to our country that Trump put him in charge of any commission. Disturbingly, Kobach's "voter fraud" commission could result in new barriers to prevent people of color, immigrants, and students from voting under the guise of investigating non-existent "voter fraud."

So why am I sharing this? Because it's on us to call out these dangerous officials in the Trump Administration and fight their attacks on our democracy. And it works. Just last week we called out the hateful attacks of another official - William Bradford - and he resigned the following day.

I know that together we can fight back. Thanks for standing tall with me.
