Frank Sharry on Kobach’s Stunning Defeat

 

The following is a statement by Frank Sharry, Executive Director of America’s Voice.

Kris Kobach, one of the leading anti-immigrant voices in American politics, lost in a stunning upset today in the race for Kansas Governor.

He has a long history of vilifying immigrants and pushing repressive policies. He has inflicted pain on millions. It finally caught up with him.

Thank you, Kansas, for standing up to hate and division and standing up for decency and fairness.
