Taking the title, "Czar," to heart, Kris Kobach, the former Kansas secretary of state, has given the White House a list of his requirements to accept the role of "immigration czar":


1. Office in the West Wing.

2. Walk-in privileges with the president.

3. Assistant to the President rank - at highest pay level for WH senior staff.

4. Staff of 7 people (2 attorneys, 2 research analysts, 1 scheduler, 1 media person, 1 assistant).

5. POTUS sits down individually with Czar and the secretaries of Homeland Security, Defense, Justice,
Ag, Interior, and Commerce, and tells each of the Secretaries to follow the directives of the Czar
without delay, subject to appeal to the President in cases of disagreement.

6. 24/7 access to either a DHS or DOD jet. Czar must be on the border every week.

7. Ability to spend weekends in KS with family on way from border back to DC, unless POTUS needs
Czar elsewhere.

8. Security detail if deemed necessary after security review.

9. Serve as the face of Trump immigration policy - the principal spokesman on television and in the media.

10. Promise that by November 1, 2019, the president will nominate Kris Kobach to be DHS Secretary, unless
Kobach wishes to continue in Czar position.

11. Green cookies on St. Patrick's day.

12. A fully-stocked mini-bar, cotton-candy maker, and ice machine in his office.

13. A fresh toilet seat installed daily in his personal bathroom.


Okay, so I made up a few of those.

Maybe.
