Kris Kobach makes case for Homeland Security job, plans detention camps with FEMA trailers

Kohack....still wanting to lick stumpys shoes...

Kris Kobach appears to be auditioning for a top job in President Donald Trump’s administration, defending hard-line immigration policies in frequent TV and radio appearances and promoting a three-step plan for solving the border crisis.

The former Kansas secretary of state’s flurry of activity began two weeks before Kirstjen Nielsen’s resignation as Homeland Security secretary directed a spotlight toward possible replacements. Kobach’s willingness to carry out legally provocative immigration policies makes him an obvious candidate to take over for Nielsen, but his ability to secure U.S. Senate confirmation remains in doubt.

Nielsen abruptly resigned over the weekend as anti-immigration conservatives intensified scrutiny of her efforts to repel huddled masses on the southern border. Kobach had already outlined actions the administration could take immediately in a plan that revolves around the creation of confined camps, or “processing centers,” for detained families.

Asylum seekers enter the United States through checkpoints along the border with Mexico and plead for relief from violence, human trafficking or drought. They are tracked with an electronic monitoring device, and their case is assigned to a federal judge.

Kobach’s idea is to deploy judges and a fleet of planes to border towns, along with thousands of mobile home trailers from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

As Fox Business Network host Lou Dobbs complained that Nielsen was working against the president last week, Kobach explained how such a processing system would work.

“When someone comes in and claims asylum, we don’t release them for six months onto the streets of the United States,” Kobach said. “We process them right there in that camp where they have three square meals, they’re living in a nice mobile home, and then as soon as they’re done, as soon as the claim is rejected, they’re on the next plane back home.

“And then the people back home suddenly realize, hey, he just left two weeks ago and yet he’s back. Maybe going in these caravans isn’t such a great deal anymore.”

Dobbs gushed over Kobach’s “brilliant” ideas.

“You’ve just come up with more answers in five minutes than we’ve heard from the Department of Homeland Security in quite some time,” Dobbs said.

Ethan Corson, executive director of the Kansas Democratic Party, said Kobach’s plan sounds cruel and inhumane.

“It seems like a plan for more costly and time-consuming litigation that would do nothing to actually make us more safe, but it would serve his perpetual goal of staying in the news,” Corson said.

Clearly, Corson said, Kobach is auditioning for a job.

In addition to making the rounds on Fox News programs, Kobach has been featured in several “exclusive” reports at Breitbart, the far-right commentary website for which Kobach is a contributing author.

Before Nielsen’s departure, Kobach told Breitbart he would consider being Trump’s immigration czar, as long as the position wields real power and isn’t just a “fantasy title.”

“If the president feels the need to tap me to serve, I’m certainly going to consider that,” Kobach said.

Kobach, who said last year that he turned down several offers from the White House so he could run for governor, was an early supporter of Trump and led the president’s commission on voter fraud.

1. I think Rick Wilson predicted this, as soon as Nielsen was fired.

2. Where do this Nazi's breed?

I knew there were problems, but for someone to actually sit down, and write up a plan such as this. Internment Camps? FEMA Trailers? Judges on the Borders?

Maybe this Kobach needs to be 2nd in line, right after Hairplug Himmler for Psychiatric Evaluation
