    NEW YORK Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach spent two hours at Trump Tower on Thursday, fueling speculation that he might be vying for a job the president-elect’s administration.
    Kobach walked into the tower’s lobby at 12:19 p.m. on Thursday for his second meeting with Donald Trump since Election Day and left at 2:13 p.m. He did not respond to reporters’ questions.

    Kobach, an immigration hardliner who serves as Kansas’ top election official, previously met with Trump in November, when he was photographed carrying plans for the Department of Homeland Security into Trump Tower.
    The document included plans for a Muslim registry, zero immigration from Syria, deportation of “criminal aliens” defined as “anyone arrested for any crime” and extreme vetting of “high-risk” immigrants by questioning them on Sharia law, gender equality, and jihad.
    Kobach advised Trump on immigration issues during the campaign. He also said recently he was a source for Trump’s tweet alleging without evidence that millions of people voted illegally in the presidential election.



    “My gut tells me that he’s going to be a part of this administration,” said Kelly Arnold, chairman of the Kansas Republican Party.
    Kobach could not immediately be reached for comment Thursday.
    Bryan Lowry of the Wichita Eagle contributed to this report.

    I so hope that it will lead to an appointment. He would be a great choice for the Trump Administration.

    Hopefully he was offered a job today and we're only awaiting Trump's announcement.

    Kansas Secretary Of State Kris Kobach Meets With Trump Again

    By LAURA ZIEGLER & PEGGY LOWE • 1 HOUR AGO

    Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach was in New York on Thursday for another meeting with President-elect Donald Trump.

    After his highly-publicized first meeting with Trump in New Jersey on Nov. 20, Republican party officials in Kansas are speculating this second round is more than a suggestion that Kobach will land a job in the new administration.

    “I’ve spoken with a couple of people close to the transition team,” says Clay Barker, Kansas GOP executive director. “Speculation is he’s being considered for a position in either the Department of Homeland Security or the Office of the Attorney General.”

    Kobach’s office has not returned numerous calls for comment.

    In his first get-together with Trump, Kobach was famously photographed holding a memo showing his plans for DHS in the first year of the administration.

    The ideas included a total ban on Syrian refugees to the U.S., reintroducing a Bush-era program that required immigrants to be tracked, and questioning “high-risk aliens” about “support for Sharia law, jihad.”

    Kobach had been quiet following that first meeting. But in an interview with WIBW in Topeka this week, Kobach said there was nothing in his memo that Trump hadn’t already talked about, including a plan to build a wall between the U.S. and Mexico.

    “(We talked about) border security problems in terms of national security, border security problems in terms of law enforcement, in terms of crime," Kobach said in the WIBW interview. "And so I’ve talked to him about that as well. And I think his administration is going to make sure that he fulfills that promise.”

    Kobach is the architect of some of the toughest immigration laws in the country. He’s linked his concerns about those in the country illegally to his efforts to crack down on voter fraud.
