Kansas Sec of State: I helped craft Donald Trump’s border wall plan
This means someone in elected office actually thinks a wall can be built that Mexico will pay for.
Kobach told the Topeka Capital-Journal that details in the real estate mogul’s plan to build a wall between the United States and Mexico (and have Mexico pay) are consistent with conversations he’s had with Trump and his campaign.
Kobach, an immigration hard-liner, endorsed Trump in February citing the billionaire’s stance on immigration and vow to build the wall at Mexico’s expense. Trump ultimately lost Kobach’s state to Ted Cruz by a margin of more than 2 to 1.
