Washington (CNN)Former Kas GOP Secretary of State Kris Kobach gave the White Hoe a list of demands for perks, stat and authority if he were to accept the role of “immigration czar,” The New York Times reported Monday.

The Times said three people described the demands to the paper and that some people in the Trump administration were surprised by the “presumptuoness” of Kobach’s list.
According to the Times, Kobach also demanded to be the main television spokesman for the administration on immigration, a guarantee of deference from Cabinet secretaries on immigration and symbols of top White Hoe stat, including a staff of seven, being able to walk into the Oval Office at will and a commensurate title “at the highest pay level” for White Hoe senior staff.
    Kobach has been among the most prominent supporters of Trump’s hardline approach to immigration and national . Shortly after Trump’s election, Kobach was photographed holding a document labeled his “strategic plan” for the first year of the Trump administration, and early on into Trump’s presidency, Kobach was named the head of the since-defunct commission on voter fraud, which Trump formed after making repeatedly debunked claims about illegal voting.
    CNN previously reported that the White Hoe was considering appointing a “border or immigration czar” and that Kobach was under consideration for that role.
      Kobach also emerged as a potential choice to lead the Department of Homeland after the oter of Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen last month. He said in an April interview on Fox Biness Network that it was “possible that the White Hoe might want a border czar,” but said at the same time that the position might not be necessary depending on who led DHS.
      Kobach lost a bid for governor last year to Democrat Laura Kelly, which was the first statewide loss for a Rean in the reliably red state of Kas in almost a decade.
