Some state lawmakers want Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach to explain his claim that corruption exists at the Statehouse.
Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach has asked for an investigation into an immigration reform protest held outside his Wyandotte County home.
Kobach said Monday he has contacted state and Wyandotte County officials seeking an investigation into the protest held Saturday outside his Piper home.
Event organizer Sunflower Community Action says about 300 participants chanted and left several shoes at Kobach’s door to represent deported parents.
Kobach has built a national profile presenting tough policies on illegal immigration issues. He and his family weren’t home during the protest.
Kobach told The Associated Press he wants authorities to investigate to determine if protesters violated laws on trespassing or other issues.
Kansas City, Kan., police spokesman Tom Tomasic says the department is reviewing the case to determine if any laws were violated.
