Kansas Plan Fuels Debate in Immigration Guru's State
02/01/2012
 

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - An architect of state and local laws

cracking down on illegal immigration is a leading Republican

officeholder in Kansas, but business groups in his home state are

asking legislators to move in the opposite direction.

They're advocating a plan designed to give illegal immigrant

workers hard-to-fill jobs.

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach (KOH'-bahk), a former law

professor who helped draft tough laws against illegal immigration

in Alabama and Arizona, criticized the new Kansas proposal Tuesday

as "amnesty." But it's expected to get a hearing from

legislators.

Utah has a guest worker program, but it isn't set to start until

January 2013, and the idea has been proposed in several states.

In Kansas, it's likely to split Republicans in the

GOP-controlled Legislature and complicate the immigration debate.
