Kansas has the largest concentration of Jewish population in the country.
It is also the home state of Republican Sen. Pat Roberts.
Trump’s decision to visit the state, a key battleground in his re-election bid, comes as Democrats have begun attacking his business dealings, citing Trump’s controversial plans to build a border wall with Mexico and his opposition to immigration reform.
He has pledged to sign an executive order that would provide a path to citizenship for the estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants in the U.S. If he signs it, his administration will have to start enforcing the immigration law he signed in 2015.
Democrats are planning a campaign of “calls to action” in Kansas, according to the Kansas City Star, in the wake of Trump’s trip.
“We will take the call to action from voters, and we will do it with your help,” the campaign says in a statement.
Trump is expected to be accompanied by former Kansas Gov.
Mike Pompeo, who has been a prominent critic of Trump and is also a vocal critic of Roberts.
It remains to be seen if Trump will sign the executive order or if he will be pressed to issue a pardon to Roberts.
