Walker’s Flip-Flop On Immigration
[su_right_ad]Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday” extracted a reversal on immigration from Scott Walker.
Wallace played a clip of a younger Walker as Milwaukee County Executive happily agreeing to what certain portions of the right now calls “amnesty.”
“I believe there’s a way that you can do that,” Walker said, citing the preeminent need for border security. “I’m not talking about amnesty.”
“But it’s a little bit slippery here,” Wallace said, citing Walker’s record of supporting immigration reform. “You said you supported it.”
“And my view has changed,” Walker said. “I’m flat out saying it. A candidate can say that. Sometimes they don’t….I look at the problems we’ve experienced the last few years. I’ve talked to governors on the border and others out there. The concerns I have are we need to secure the border. We ultimately need to put in a legal immigration system that works. And part of doing that is putting the onus on employers. I don’t think you do it through amnesty.”
Wallace brought up one of Walker’s many recent media to-dos, in which he wouldn’t quite say whether Obama loved America after former Gotham mayor Rudy Giuliani intimated as much at a Walker event.
