Exclusive–Kris Kobach: U.S. a ‘Sinking Ship’ with Mass Immigration Crisis

Former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach says the United States is a “sinking ship” when it comes to the current mass flow of illegal and legal immigration.

During an interview with SiriusXM Patriot’s Breitbart News Daily, Kobach said the country is in crisis mode in terms of soaring illegal immigration at the U.S.-Mexico border, while current legal immigration levels that admit more than 1.2 million legal immigrants every year remain the same.

Kobach said:

We’re in a sinking boat right now in terms of our actual current immigration crisis. People often use that analogy on immigration, you’ve got to plug the holes before you start bailing water. Well talking about legislation in Congress is kind of like designing a new bailing system for the distant future. [Emphasis added]

We’ve got an imminent crisis right now and plugging the holes has got to address how the asylum system has been busted wide open. There are specific things that can be done without Congress that will require determined action by the president and his team. [Emphasis added]

A few actions that can be taken with the approval of Congress, Kobach said, is implementing a “Safe Third Country” agreement with Mexico which would effectively ban border crossers and migrants from arriving in the U.S. from Mexico to claim asylum.

“If we had that with Mexico, then the people fraudulently claiming asylum, or if there are a few who have legitimate asylum claims, walking through Mexico and then setting foot in America, they would not be eligible, they would have to claim asylum in Mexico, because that would be the first safe country their feet hit,” Kobach said. “If we had that, it would immediately free up the system.”

Kobach said President Trump’s administration must also stop giving out work permits to border crossers while they await their asylum hearings, which are often years down the road:

We are giving work permits to these individuals who are coming in right now … the work permits last as long as they are paroled into the United States … and then they’ll be here for six years waiting for their asylum hearing and they can work that entire time. [Emphasis added]

So imagine us bringing in, in addition to the one million plus green cards, in addition to all of the H-1B, H-2B … all the different work categories. We are bringing in a rate of less than 100,000 a month additional flood of people with newly minted work visas given to them because of very poor policies, also which date to the Obama administration but are now still continuing in the Trump administration. [Emphasis added]

The number of people, beyond U.S. citizens, who are coming into the workforce right now is staggering both because of our crisis at the border and because of our longstanding policies of giving so many work visas and green cards out. [Emphasis added]

    The POTUS Trump MUST sign an EO and SUSPEND ALL IMMIGRATION; NO AMNESTY; NO ANCHOR BABIES; NO WORK VISAS until Congress FIXES America’s broken LEGAL immigration!

    A sinking ship … yes … and all I M outlets tell us how many inches we sink each day … who’s responsible … but not a peep about how to save ourselves. Not a peep about how to find things we can break off the ship and use to float or ANY solution. ANY SOLUTION. ZERO. So … I ask … what good are all the independent media outlets ? We don’t need anymore narration. We need


    Until we hear that from an outlet, we shouldn’t even waste our time visiting their platforms. SLEEP would actually be more productive than wasting even 1 minute on their sites !
