Kobach Accidentally Reveals Anti-Muslim Plan


On Sunday, Kris Kobach showed us his papers—and civil liberties groups now want him out.

Of contention for Trump’s cabinet, that is.

Kobach tipped his hand accidentally Monday afternoon as he posed for a photo with Donald Trump as he headed into their meeting at the mogul’s golf course in Bedminster, N.J. The Topeka Capital-Journal noticed that Kobach was holding a stack of papers, and that much of the text on the first paper was visible in the AP photo.

The words “strategic plan for first 365 days” were clearly visible on the page—on what appeared to be a plan, if Trump picks him to head the Department of Homeland Security. That plan would re-start a post-9/11 registry of certain immigrants, ask “high-risk aliens” if they support Shariah law and believe in equality between men and women, and stop the U.S. from taking in any Syrian refugees.

It’s a plan that has human rights groups ready to mobilize. Naureen Shah, the director of national security and human rights for Amnesty International USA, told The Daily Beast that her group would look to organize protests against Kobach’s plans if he gets a chance to implement them.
