Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, known nationally for his anti-immigrant activism, shared the stage with long-time white nationalist leader, Bob Vandervoort Saturday at CPAC, the Conservative Political Action Conference. The other panelists joining Vandervoort and Kobach include Rep. David Rivera (R-FL),  and Alex Nowrasteh of the Competitive Enterprise Institute. The moderator is Niger Innis, national spokesperson for the Congress of Racial Equality.

Despite being informed of Vandervoort’s background in advance, none of the panelists challenged Vandervoort on his white nationalism. All of them shook his hand.
