Legislative leaders in Kansas say several strict immigration proposals are stalled after four days of hearings about the bills, including testimony from Secretary of State Kris Kobach. The anti-immigrant official wrote Arizona’s and Alabama’s harmful immigration policies, and he has urged his own state to pass similar measures. But Republican Senate President Steve Morris said he does not think there is support for the harsh measures in the Senate. And House Speaker Mike O’Neal (R) said he did not want to pass a law that would guarantee a lawsuit. “I don’t have a burning desire to address immigration this year,” O’Neal said.
