Soft-ball Fox News Piece On GOP Hispanic Outreach

Kobach made his remarks in response to a right-wing caller who asked, “What happens, if you know your history, when one culture or one race or one religion overwhelms another culture or race?”

Kobach understood:  the caller was worried about ethnic cleansing.

“What protects us in America from any kind of ethnic cleansing is the rule of law, of course,” Kobach said. “And the rule of law used to be unassailable, used to be taken for granted in America. And now, of course, we have a President who disregards the law when it suits his interests…”
