Kansas secretary of state meeting with Trump in New York

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach is meeting with President-elect Donald Trump.

Kobach arrived Thursday at Trump Tower in New York after Trump’s transition team confirmed the scheduled meeting.

Kobach advised Trump’s campaign on immigration issues. Kobach is a former law professor who helped draft tough state and local laws cracking down on illegal immigration, including in Arizona and Alabama.

Since Kobach was elected Kansas secretary of state in 2010, he’s also been a champion of tough voter identification laws.

Kobach met with Trump in New Jersey before Thanksgiving and brought with him a list of immigration and national security proposals. Kobach was previously considered a potential candidate for attorney general and homeland security secretary.

Kobach spokeswoman Desiree Taliaferro said she has no details about Thursday’s meeting with Trump.
