The paranoia over undocumented immigrants flooding our voting booths is beyond the pale.

And yet Kansas legislators, for fear they would appear unpatriotic, fell for it in 2011 when they passed the first law in the nation to require proof of citizenship to vote.

As architect of the Kansas voting law, Secretary of State Kris Kobach’s goal is to make us all think twice about giving newcomers the benefit of the doubt when it comes to their citizenship; as if that were a precursor of their character. Such fear-mongering works to turn us into a guarded and suspicious people — a far cry from our former selves.
