Kris Kobach Op-Ed in NY Post: 'Sanctuary' is lawless and deadly

Leading Republican Secretary of State candidate Kris Kobach in the New York Post:

Last week, the Justice Department made an astonishing statement about its unprecedented lawsuit to stop the Arizona illegal-immigration law. Attorney General Eric Holder’s spokeswoman, Tracy Schmaler, claimed that it was appropriate to go after Arizona, but inappropriate to stop “sanctuary cities.”

Schmaler said: “There is a big difference between a state or locality saying they are not going to use their resources to enforce a federal law, as so-called sanctuary cities have done, and a state passing its own immigration policy that actively interferes with federal law. . . That’s what Arizona has done in this case.”
