There’s quite a back-and-forth today between Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach and supporters of immigration reform who protested at his Wyandotte Co. home over the weekend.

Videos and other accounts say the protesters (estimated between 100 and 300 people) walked up Kobach’s driveway and left items at his front door. They also chanted, with one protester using a bullhorn.
Kobach apparently wasn’t home at the time.
Protests at the private homes of public officials is unusual, although not unheard of. And most public officials, regardless of political affiliation, will tell you protests at a home are out of bounds.
In remarks to a reporter, Kobach talked about armed resistance.
The protesting group has fired back.
Walking up to a doorway isn’t necessarily trespassing — if it was, the mailman would be in trouble.
But anyone who walks on private property must leave when asked, or face prosecution.
That apparently didn’t happen Saturday because Kobach wasn’t home.
