Big League Politics contributor Tom Pappert caught up with former Kansas gubernatorial candidate Kris Kobach – one of the few pro-border wall personalities allowed into the event – at CPAC on Thursday night.
“I’m actually here representing We Build the Wall right now,” Kobach said. “I just recently finished my term as Secretary of State of Kansas, and right now I’m serving as General Counsel for We Build the Wall.”
We Build the Wall is a private organization that Kobach says is using private funds in an attempt to build a wall along the southern border, as demanded by the American people when they elected President Donald J. Trump in 2016.
Trump has hit roadblocks in his efforts to secure the southern border, with a non-complying Congress who refused to appropriate funds for the project. He has declared a National Emergency in an attempt to use Department of Defense funds for the wall, which will be fought tooth-and-nail by open borders Democrats in blue states, likely leading to a lengthy legal battle.
“We need to do it,” Kobach said, “because there are hundreds and hundreds of miles of border that are wide open and even if President Trump gets every mile that he’s asking for built, there will still be over a thousand miles of border wide open.”
Kobach described the negative ramifications of illegal immigration and poorly designed legal immigration laws in his interview with Pappert, as well as his future plans, which may include working for the Trump administration, or a potential 2020 U.S. Senate run.

Over 200 Illegal Aliens Arrested in Bust of Human Smuggling Operation in Laredo, Texas
More than 200 illegal aliens were transferred to the custody of Customs and Border Patrol last week, with the wave of arrests coming as authorities moved upon a human smuggling ring operating in the Laredo, Texas area.
Border Patrol agents most recently recounted finding 25 people hiding within a horse trailer at an immigration checkpoint on Thursday. They’ve encountered other smuggling attempts with the use of commercial tractor-trailers, box trucks, agriculture and fuel containers, and a travel trailer. CBP has reported making 242 arrests last week alone, a figure not seen since before the coronavirus pandemic.
At least two of the men arrested by CBP for attempting to unlawfully enter the country have outstanding arrest warrants for sex crimes in the United States, one of which is said to have targeted a minor. Both of these suspects are currently facing extradition proceedings for their alleged crimes.
The south Texas city appears to have become a hub for cartel-affiliated human smuggling, which has resumed in force following a lull during the onset of the coronavirus pandemic. CBP and the Webb County Sheriff’s Office executed a search warrant on a human smuggling stash house in the city last month, in which 47 illegal aliens were being stashed.
The freeze on illegal immigration that resulted from the coronavirus pandemic appears to largely be over, with criminal smuggling groups now once again attempting to move large groups of unlawful aliens into the United States. It’s very likely that smuggling organizations will attempt to move their customers across the southern border in a greatly increased capacity if Joe Biden is inaugurated in January. The Democrat candidate has already confirmed he only intends to deport illegal aliens who are convicted of a violent felony, which would largely abandon the enforcement of American immigration law.
