By Sharon Bernstein SACRAMENTO Calif.

Kansas lawyer is 'go to guy' in battle against Obama on immigration

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 08/27/2014 - 05:34
By Mica Rosenberg and Jeff Mason NEW YORK/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - As President Barack Obama prepares to announce major immigration policy changes, conservative attorney Kris Kobach is fighting a case in federal court he says has the potential to “torpedo” the president’s plans. Kobach, the Republican secretary of state of Kansas, is an architect of laws in several states to combat illegal immigration. He is also the most prominent figure among a small group of lawyers working to punch legal holes in Obama's immigration policies.     Obama has pledged to act alone in the face of congressional inaction on immigration reform, and an announcement could come in early September. Immigration advocates close to the White House are pressing for work permits and relief from deportation for up to 5 million people.     While opponents can't craft a legal strategy until Obama lays out the specifics of his plan, Kobach is likely to be at the forefront of any battle.     "I think anybody inclined to challenge (Obama’s action) would either already know, or would ask around and find out, that Kobach is one of the main go-to guys," said Michael Jung, a private lawyer in Dallas who has worked with Kobach.
