TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach has met with President-elect Donald Trump.

Kobach made no comment to reporters Thursday upon arriving for and leaving his meeting at Trump Tower in New York.

Kobach advised Trump’s campaign on immigration issues. Kobach is a former law professor who helped draft tough state and local laws cracking down on illegal immigration, including in Arizona and Alabama.

Since Kobach was elected Kansas secretary of state in 2010, he’s also been a champion of tough voter identification laws.

Kobach met with Trump in New Jersey before Thanksgiving and brought a list of immigration and national security proposals. Kobach previously was considered a potential candidate for attorney general and homeland security secretary.

Kobach spokeswoman Desiree Taliaferro said she has no details about Thursday’s meeting.
