Posted on 04/09/2019 10:03:06 AM PDT by GIdget2004
One of the GOP senators from Kris Kobachs home state said Tuesday that the Senate would not be able to confirm the Kansas Republican if President Donald Trump tapped him for a cabinet post.
Kobach, the former Kansas secretary of state, has been mentioned as a potential candidate for an array of immigration-related positions after President Donald Trump pulled his nominee for the director of Immigration Customs Enforcement and announced the departure of his secretary of Homeland Security.
But Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kansas, doesnt believe the Republican-controlled Senate could confirm his fellow Kansan, who has gained national notoriety for championing stronger restrictions on immigration.
Dont go there. We cant confirm him, Roberts whispered to The Kansas City Star when asked about Kobach Tuesday on his way into a Senate vote.
I never said that to you, Roberts added despite the fact that another reporter was present and The Star had not agreed to an off record conversation.

Put him up for a vote and lets see which GOP Amnesty Senators
vote against him.
Put Kobach up for a vote. Make the open-borders GOPe Senators continue to reveal themselves.
Another example of why it’s been so difficult for POTUS to staff his administration.
Anyone willing to carry out his America-first agenda finds it nearly impossible to get confirmed by Senate swamp-dwellers.
Bring the vote.
Every time a RINO makes a move.
Bring a vote.
“national notoriety for championing stronger restrictions on immigration”
Why is he “notorious”? For wanting immigration laws to be respected?
When did illegal alien criminals become more palatable to United States Senators, at least the Republican version?
Does the article mean legal immigration or illegal invasion or all inbound migration regardless of legality? It makes a difference. Words mean things.
Kobach or no one.
the GOPe knows that he’ll be effective.
In that case, confirm Kobach. Dump Roberts. MAGA!
Thanks Pat Roberts for affirming we are looking at the correct person for the job in Chris Kobach.
Make him a recess appointment. Confirm him in 2021.
Folks, this is why Trump cant make big changes.
Republican voters gave him $#!+ senators!
Let’s face it..our party has left us!!! Thank God Trump is NOT from the establishment elite!!
Kris would be a great person to be immigration “czar”. They do not need confirmation, as we all saw during duh-bama’s time in office.
Shove it it their face. Then when they whine about it, well, I’ll just stop there.
Instead of “czar”, maybe we could name them “supreme leader” or “dark lord” or something.
If Pres. Trump names a “czar”, it could trigger a special council or congressional committee hearings 80)
Except for so many RINOS, that almost gives it a false flavor...
