Photographers capture Trump advisor's hardline immigration plans

Kris Kobach, Kansas' secretary of state, accidentally divulged his immigration plans while posing for a photo opp with President-elect Donald Trump.

The documents appear to detail Kobach's strategic plan for the Department of Homeland Security for the first year of the Trump administration, which include reducing the "intake of Syrian refugees to zero" and "extreme vetting questions for high-risk" individuals.

NBC News previously reported that Kobach, a champion of hardline immigration policies, had been hired for Trump's transition team. He helped design a law in Arizona that required state and local officials to check the immigration status of individuals stopped by the police.

Last week, Reuters reported that Kobach said the immigration policy group could recommend the reinstatement of a national registry of immigrants and visitors who enter the United States on visas from countries where extremist organizations are active.
