Kansas shouldn’t be like Arizona

It was good that an overwhelming majority of Kansas House members rejected an effort to pass an Arizona-style immigration bill. That’s the last thing Kansas needs right now, especially after the recent “joke” by Rep. Virgil Peck, R-Tyro, about shooting illegal immigrants. The measure pushed by Rep. Lance Kinzer, R-Olathe, and Secretary of State Kris Kobach stalled in the House Judiciary Committee. An attempt Wednesday to force it out of committee failed 84-40.
