Shop of Horrors Alert - 'The wall is going to get built'

The Washington Post reports that ‘The wall is going to get built’: Immigration hard-liner joins Trump transition.

The Scriber’s Inaugural Audrey II award will be shared by whoever is picking advisors for the Trump Transition Team and “Kris Kobach, the Kansas secretary of state, [who] told a Topeka television station he was consulting with Trump insiders on the future of U.S. immigration policy.”

“I’m a member of the immigration policy transition team, and there’s going to be a lot to do there in part because Mr. Trump and Mr. Obama are diametrical opposites when it comes to immigration policy, so there will be a lot of changes,” Kobach told KWCH.

Kobach has been described by critics as an “anti-immigrant zealot” and a favorite of “far-right nativists.” A graduate of Harvard, Yale and Oxford, he has helped shepherd dozens of restrictive immigration measures at the state and local levels around the country and is known for his affiliation with the Immigration Reform Law Institute, the group behind Arizona’s feared SB–1070 immigration law.

There is one major idea he takes credit for when it comes to Trump — the notion that Mexico should pay for a border wall.

“There’s no question the wall is going to get built,” Kobach told KWCH. “The only question is how quickly will it get done and who pays for it?”

I’ll bet Harvard, Yale, and Oxford are not looking forward to the media attention on this one.


From the movie Little Shop of Horrors .

Little shop,
Little shoppa horrors.
Bop-sh’bop,
You’ll never stop the terror.
Little shop,
Little shoppa horrors.
No, oh, oh, no, oh, oh, no, oh, oh, no!
