KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) -- Immigration reform advocates gathered in Kansas City, Kan., and said contrary to popular rhetoric, most Kansans support immigration reform.

Organizers said the town hall meeting Saturday attracted hundreds of people from Kansas, Iowa, Colorado and Rhode Island.

The Kansas City Star reports (http://bit.ly/18Oa5XM ) that after the meeting a group also went to the Wyandotte County home of Kansas Secretary of State Kobach and left about 20 pairs of shoes at his doorstep. Armando Minjarez, a member of Sunflower Community Action, one of the event coordinators, said the shoes represent parents who've been deported since 2008.

Congress is battling over comprehensive immigration changes.

Kobach has built a national profile presenting tough policies on illegal immigration issues. He and his family apparently weren't home during the protest at his home.
