Sunflower Community Action: Sec Kris Kobach is Engaging in Racial Fear Mongering

Statement from SCA Executive Director Sulma Arias in response to Koback calling a group of diverse peaceful protesters an “angry mob" and threatening that “this is what the 2nd amendment is for:"

Secretary Kobach has descended into racial fear mongering this week to promote his extreme views that only serve to divide us. The sight of 300 people of color, mostly families, praying and singing in front of his home to keep families together has led him to issue wild threats about shooting members of our group and ugly language, casting even small children remembering a lost parent as part of an ‘angry mob.’”

We are human beings and concerned Kansans who know that Sec. Kobach is far out of the main stream on his violent policies and threats against Kansas residents in response to peaceful protest.

This must end, and that is only possible by fixing our broken immigration system that allows racial fear mongering to set policy state by state.
We demand that our Senator Moran take a stand and publicly distance himself from these extremist actions by supporting and voting for comprehensive immigration reform including a pathway to citizenship for all 11 million undocumented Americans.
