Anti immigration experts say President elect of Donald Trump could speed up construction of US Mexico border with out getting immediate approval from Congress.
Immigration hardliner Trump plans for wall Muslim registry as kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach. Who helped draft tough immigration laws in Arizona and elsewhere, said the Trump policy adviser discussed a draft review proposal for restoring the immigrant registry of Muslim countries.
Cobach, a key member of the Trump Transition team, reportedly participated in regular telephone conferences with some 12 Trump immigration advisors over the past two to three months, according to press reports.
The Trump Conversion Team did not respond to requests for confirmation of Kobak’s role. The president-elect did not promise to follow the Advisory Panel’s specific recommendations.
Trump, who won last week in a confrontation with Democratic Sen. Hillary Clinton, pledged to build a wall on the US-Mexico border, causing a Middle East problem and strengthening immigration enforcement for 11 million immigrants.
He also said he did not have “extreme verification” of Muslims who entered the United States with national security measures.
In an interview with Reuters on Friday, Kobata said the immigration group “has discussed draft executive orders for President-elect’s review so that Trump and Homeland Security can operate.”
In order to fulfill Trump’s request for some “extreme views” of some Muslim immigrants, the immigration policy group said it could recommend that immigrants and visitors register their national registrations on visas for countries where extremist groups are active.
Kobach helped design the program, known as the National Security Entry-Exit Registration System, serving as Republican George W. Bush’s Justice Department after an American attack on al-Qaida militants on September 11, 2001.
Under NSEERS, people in countries considered “high risk” had to be interrogated and fingerprinted when entering the United States. In countries where active citizens are actively threatening, some US citizens over the age of 16 must register directly with the government agency and have to check in periodically.
NSEERS was deemed redundant by the Department of Homeland Security and was abandoned in 2011, criticizing citizenship organizations that unfairly targeted immigrants from many Muslim countries.
Kobach said the immigration adviser was also looking at how the Department of Homeland Security could move quickly to the border construction without Congressional approval by reusing existing funds from the current budget, Kobach said.
He added. We will need additional budget for the next fiscal year.
Trump ‘s fellow Republican – controlled Congress can oppose shifting designated Homeland Security funds for other purposes.
Kobach has worked with allies across the United States to enact legislation on illegal immigration and take legal action.
In 2010, Arizona legislation required state and local officials to identify individuals whose immigration status was suspended by the police.
Part of this law, which was fiercely opposed by Hispanics and civil rights groups, was destroyed by the US Supreme Court in 2011.
Kobach was also the architect of the Kansas Act of 2013, requiring voters to submit birth certificates or proof of citizenship, such as a US passport, when registering for the first time.
The US Court of Appeals forbade the law because of concerns raised by civil rights groups.
In an interview, Kobach argued that illegal immigrants should be deported before being convicted of being charged with violent crime.
Trump said on Saturday that he would remove immigrants with criminal records of illegal immigration when he took office on Saturday.
Kobach also discussed ways in which immigration groups granted temporary repatriation and labor permits to over 700,000 undocumented immigrants or “dreamers” who came to the United States as children of illegal immigrants, discussing how President Barack Obama will overturn the 2012 enforcement action he said.
