    President-elect Donald Trump's transition team includes some of the most conservative opponents to illegal immigration, NBC News reported.

    Kris Kobach, Kansas' secretary of state, who is a champion of tough anti-illegal immigration laws and ideas, has been hired as part of the team.

    According to a document obtained by The New York Times, Danielle Cutrona is leading the "Immigration Reform & Building the Wall" component of Trump's transition. She is Sen. Jeff Sessions' counsel on the Judiciary Committee. Sessions has long opposed illegal — and many forms of legal — immigration.

    "There's going to be a lot to do there in part because Mr. Trump and Mr. Obama are diametric opposites when it comes to immigration policy," Kobach told Kansas' KWCH. "So there will be a lot of changes."
