President-elect Donald Trump is assembling some of the most conservative opponents to illegal immigration for his transition into the White House.
Kris Kobach, Kansas' Secretary of State, who is a champion of tough anti-illegal immigration laws and ideas, has been hired for Trump's transition team.
"There's going to be a lot to do there in part because Mr. Trump and Mr. Obama are diametric opposites when it comes to immigration policy," Kobach told Kansas' KWCH. "So there will be a lot of changes."
President Obama was unable to get passed comprehensive immigration reform during his term, but he passed two executive actions that exempt DREAMers and their families from deportation.
In Trump's 10-point immigration plan, he says he will "cancel" the executive orders.
Kobach was the architect of Arizona's SB 1070 law which allows law enforcement to ask people for to prove their immigration status when there is "reasonable suspicion" that they might not be in the country legally. He also coined the idea of "self-deportation," which would make immigration laws so stringent that it would encourage people to leave the country.
