Kris Kobach Shocked US Has to Face Such a Massive Caravan

(Fox News' "Fox & Friends")

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, who has served as President Donald Trump's immigration adviser, said Wednesday he did not think the United States would see caravans of 5,000 or more people approaching the U.S. border, especially with the media "in tow."

"Normally, in the past we've seen small groups sneaking in the dead of night," Kobach, the Republican candidate for governor in his state, told Fox News' "Fox & Friends."

"This group is coming in broad daylight, demanding entry into the United States."

Meanwhile, he said he also agrees Trump could end birthright citizenship with an executive order, and it is a mistake to think the 14th Amendment "commands" all babies born in the United States are granted citizenship.

"If you are a foreign diplomat, you don't become a citizen because you have a child, or that child doesn't become a citizen," Kobach said. "Same thing with a foreign army, if someone has a child, that person doesn't become a citizen.

"So, obviously, illegal aliens and temporary visitors are not citizens of the United States by birth here – or don't have to be under 14th Amendment. So, either Congress could change it, or the way our statute's currently drafted, the president could do it through a regulation."

Kobach is in a close race for Kansas' governorship, and he said he would like voters to look at the matter of immigration.

"One of the reasons we see such mass immigration to the United States is because many states are rewarding illegal aliens with welfare benefits, and Kansas, unfortunately, is one of them," he said.
